Presentation skills | Public speaking
A keynote speaker and presentation coach Jay Surti is based in London, UK. Having practised as a lawyer for 17 years, she realised that many professionals struggle with presenting and public speaking, something which was a big problem for her personally for more than 30 years until she found a way to overcome that – her own experiences of not being able to speak up led to missed career opportunities, including not pursuing a career in Civil Engineering. Her fascination for the art of effective communication led to a career change.
Jay now coaches senior executives and professionals across many different industry sectors in mastering their presentation skills and connecting with their audience. She also teaches CMI (Chartered Management Institute) and ILM (The Institute of Leadership and Management) accredited modules in Management and Leadership.
Her other main area of interest is speaking on the topic of diversity in the workplace. She’s served as a member of the Executive Board for Women in Banking and Finance (UK) and is currently the Head of Mentoring. Jay is also a Council Member for the Women’s Engineering Society (UK) and a member of the University of Dundee Governing Body.
“Jay presented at our recent Women in Insurance event and she was superb – an engaging professional who our attendees described as inspiring! Very interesting and thought provoking, made me determined to take a step into the unknown.”
