The Word Power Story: 100% organic
Word Power evolved into a professional service after Shaun was introduced to an anxious executive in Barcelona preparing for a potentially career changing English presentation.
After helping her deliver a business winning presentation Shaun found his phone started to ring. Other professionals in the city clearly shared her anxiety and after several requests for help, the idea for Word Power was born.
Building on his fifteen year teaching background Shaun returned to London to study as a presentation skills trainer. Now back in Barcelona he trains clients including lawyers, business executives, doctors, academics and students to successfully present in English.

Shaun’s ability to turn my jumble of thoughts into a sensible, coherent, persuasive and effective presentation was highly impressive. I recommend his service 100% to native and non-native speakers of English. It was fun too. Shaun’s a great person to spend time with so I enjoyed the journey as well as the destination. He has a very keen sense of what he is doing and delivers his constructive criticism with great charm! Worth every penny!
