Public Speaking Training

Confident male leader speaking at diverse team meeting

Duration 1 day


Most people are terrified by the idea of public speaking, whether it is making a formal presentation to colleagues or peers, or giving a toast at a friend’s celebration.

But it is possible to overcome nervousness and become confident at speaking in public, in front of a small or big audience.

This highly interactive course helps people learn how to ground and centre themselves with ease in readiness to speak, feel calm, to prepare in minutes for public speaking, or to speak eloquently and impressively even when there is no time to prepare. It also teaches skills such as how to read your audience, using icebreakers and humour and how to best interact with audience questions or interruptions.

This is a fun, highly interactive course which gives participants a chance to use what they are learning throughout the day in real presentations in front of others in the group.

An ideal course for anyone who wants to learn practical tools for becoming a more confident speaker or to improve their speaking skills.
