and the team at Presence have made all that possible

Change the way you feel about speaking in public with our powerful and fun two and four day public speaking courses in London.

We’ll help you tame your anxiety and develop your natural personal presence, enabling you to make a deep connection with your audience and get your message across.

These public speaking courses are for you if you want to:

  • Feel confident and enjoy speaking in front of any audience
  • Speak easily and creatively – without notes
  • Remain composed and think clearly – even under pressure
  • Feel really comfortable at business or social events
  • Learn a lifelong skill that can help you succeed in your career and personal life
  • Get your message across powerfully and effectively in all situations

How is our approach different?

We are social creatures. Relationships are at the heart of what it means to be human. We believe that if you get the relationships right, everything else falls into place. This is especially true for public speaking.

No amount of techniques and tricks will help you speak effectively unless you can really connect with your audience and they can feel that you’re truly at ease at the front of the room.

Our unique approach to public speaking goes much deeper than most others. We’ll help you to develop an authentically confident personal public speaking style that will allow you to connect with your audience, and successfully get your points across in a way that impacts your audience intellectually and emotionally.

Additionally, unlike many other training providers, we won’t leave you without support when you’ve completed our courses.  Our optional Presence Public Speaking Club will give you the chance to practice and embed your skills in a safe and encouraging atmosphere, for as long as you need.

It’s quite simple. The way we teach public speaking involves helping you make major shifts in the way you relate with people in public. Making significant lasting changes takes time. Experience has taught us that we can’t help people to make the first giant leap in a single day. (We used to run 1 day workshops as well as 2 day workshops, but we stopped when we saw how much better people’s results were with the 2 day workshops.) If you’re willing to commit 2 days of your time, in almost every case we can help you to achieve great results.

All of our open courses take place in central London.  Our public speaking courses in London are all in comfortable, usually unique, Zone 1 locations, conveniently located for public transport.  You can find details of the locations by clicking on the individual events in the calendar located here.

Our full course descriptions are below, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions.

Foundation One

Establishing an authentic connection with your audience is the key to successful public speaking. This is something your audience will love because as humans we’re wired to connect. Unlike other public speaking training organisations, we will help you to develop a real 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.

Foundation One includes 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.  All our public speaking courses take place in London.

Benefits of this public speaking workshop:

  • Feel confident standing in front of an audience
  • Develop your own unique ‘voice’ and style
  • Build genuine rapport with your audience
  • Express yourself with authenticity and clarity
  • Speak ‘off the cuff’ without notes
  • Refine your abililty to give and receive appreciation
