Learn to love Public Speaking

Are you new to speaking and presenting?
Or perhaps you are experienced but want to improve.
Maybe you need to gain confidence speaking to an audience.

Whatever your reason, we can help you to become a more confident and effective Speaker and Presenter

Public Speaking may sound very imposing, but it is just speaking more formally than conversational style. Regardless of audience size, many people are nervous, or even fearful, of speaking to them. We can help. You can spend a lot of money on one or two day public speaking courses. Or you can join us and receive continuing training and support in all aspects of public speaking and presenting for as long as you are a member.

Our aim is to help you to be the best speaker that you can be. Whether you need to develop confidence in front of an audience or to polish your technique, we are here to help. Our meetings are structured to help you to develop the ability to speak off the cuff as well as to deliver prepared speeches and presentations. We are professional in our approach but don't take ourselves too seriously.

So what's the difference between a talk, speech and presentation? Not much! A presentation usually has visual aids and may involve questions and answers. A speech is more reliant on the spoken word. A talk can be either and tends to be a bit less formal. With our help you will become an expert at all formats! Our public speaking training is at the heart of what we do. And we are also mindful that, in the business world, the ability present well is essential. Even job interviews will often require some form of presentation. Our presentation training addresses the need to be a skilled presenter.
