About speaker coach COEN TAN
As a speech coach and communications trainer, Coen helps highly competent business leaders, professionals and educators express themselves compellingly so that they are seen, heard and respected.
By working with his clients to uncover their personal stories, innate talents, and insights, they are able present themselves through narratives that influence and inspire others. People he has helped have realised that just being great at what they do, is not sufficient to help them attain even more success.
Many of them have even confessed to feeling stressed and inadequate the higher their climb, and that they will stagnate or even lose their careers if they miss the mark in their communications.
Growing up as an emotionally sensitive child, Coen often “felt” emotions that people were not aware of feeling themselves, so he was often labelled as “overly sensitive.” For a long time, he has accepted these labels and therefore learn to keep his emotions to himself. This led him to isolate himself, got picked on his classmates in school, and fell into depression.
It wasn’t until he’s reached adulthood, and having worked through his experiences and attained healing that he was able to embrace the gift of natural empathy and curiosity, which he now brings to his work. He marries these qualities with his work experiences and professional training to bring a
uniquely deep experience for his clients, helping them overcome their internal fears, feelings of “impostor syndrome” and lack of confidence so that they can express themselves more powerfully.
