No amount of techniques and tricks will help you speak effectively unless you can really connect with your audience and feel truly at ease at the front of the room. Our unique approach to public speaking training goes much deeper than most others. We will help you to develop a confident personal speaking style that will enable you to connect with your audience and successfully get your points across, time after time.
This course is for you if you want to:
- Feel really comfortable at business or social events
- Develop a presence that is authentic and engaging
- Feel confident and enjoy speaking in front of any audience
- Speak easily and creatively – without notes
- Remain composed and think clearly – even under pressure
- Get your message across powerfully and effectively in both business and social situations
- Learn a lifelong skill that can help you succeed within your career and personal life.
Foundation public speaking courses
These are our most popular training courses and the ideal way to build and develop your confidence and ability. The full Foundation course runs for 4 days over two modules (Foundation One and Foundation Two). Choose the option that’s right for you:
[3 Options boxes (a) [Foundation 1], (b) [The whole course – Foundation 1 and 2], (c) [The complete package – Foundation 1,2 plus 3 individual coaching sessions] ]
Foundation One (Days 1 and 2)
Establishing an authentic connection with your audience is the key to successful public speaking. Unlike other training organisations, we will help you to develop a presence and a rapport rather than teach you how to perform. And, once you’re more comfortable and relaxed, you’ll find that the rest comes naturally. You’ll stop worrying about what do with your hands or the way you are standing and start enjoying a positive relationship with your audience and experiencing the ‘buzz’ of successfully getting your message across.
Presence Foundation courses include practical one-to-one and group exercises with plenty of individual feedback and coaching. You’ll cover all the essential areas such as handling nerves, speaking without notes and making powerful use of silence, and receive tailored handouts at the end of each day so you can focus on learning rather than note-taking.
Foundation Two (Days 3 and 4) – Speaking at Work
Foundation Two builds on Foundation One and will enable you to develop strategies for applying your new found self-assurance in a business environment. You will create presentations, learn how to deal with difficult questions and practice speaking to different workplace audiences; from team mates to senior executives and, of course, to customers and learn to effectively get your message across each and every time. You will also develop essential one-to-one communications skills.
Foundation One and Two can be booked separately or together. You must complete Foundation One before progressing to Foundation Two.
One-to-one coaching sessions are a great way of focusing on particular areas of the training that you may wish to explore further – or to iron out issues and help combat nerves. Our complete Foundation Package includes two individual coaching sessions and three practice evenings so that delegates can embed learning and practice their skills.
