About Us

Our ability to engage and communicate, and ultimately influence, is crucial.

“My passion for forthright and open communication was instilled at a young age. Dad always taught us kids to speak our minds.” – Tony Bulmer

Our Beginnings

Our story begins in the early 1990s, when founder Tony Bulmer recognised that not all people are natural public speakers, and they needed help with crafting their message and delivery. After all, what is the point of speaking if you are not getting through to your audience? Some people have the skills, but not the confidence. Some might have the confidence, but not the skills.Many people need assistance on both fronts.

Struggling as a verbal communicator is likely to limit a person’s career progression, commercial value and sense of self-satisfaction. Tony believed from early on, that we all have the capability within us, it just needs to be unlocked. At Bulmer Group, we aim to do exactly that, unlock people, so they have the confidence and skill to bring their true personality to their presentation world and deliver an impactful message.

Fast forward 30 years, people in business still experience these problems today, and Bulmer Group has grown over the decades to offer a wide range of coaching services to a wide demographic – from group classes for business professionals up to one-on-one with CEOs and chairpersons. Improving the delivery of your message will help you get it across and maximise the impact and reception, and ultimately achieve success in your role.

We are one of the few and possibly most experienced Presentation Skills Coaching specialists in business today. Our offering has evolved with modern business environments, and so we are both pleased and proud to offer quality remote and virtual coaching. Wherever your team is, we can help them.

Contact us today for more information on how we can help you and your team.

We have over 30 years experience working with organisations and individuals to enhance presentation impact.
