Train the Trainer in-house corporate development events

With Philippa Hammond

Brighton, Sussex, UK and beyond

Your people need to be able to achieve your organisation’s mission, vision and values – and to do that, you need great trainers.

‘You’re great at your job, so you’ll be great at training it!’

Sound familiar?

It’s a bit like saying ‘you’re a great football player – so you can drive the team bus to the next match!’

But do they understand how and why adults learn, current learning and development thinking, practical training, facilitation and presentation techniques that work?

Training’s a very particular set of knowledge, skills and mindsets – and these can be learned.

Train the Trainer 3-day development programme

This programme offers an introduction to essential training skills.

Delegates explore key training topics, with practical elements and individual feedback throughout.


A practical first step for aspiring and new trainers who are subject matter experts

A practical refresher for returning trainers

A practical introduction to training for delegates new to the learning and development management role

Suitable for any field and industry – the course can happily blend delegates from many different organisations

About your Confident Public Speaking session

If you’re preparing for a particular event, it’s wise not to book a coaching session for the day before.

Best to take your session well in advance, to allow time for that new knowledge to settle, for you to practice your new skills and that great new confidence to grow.

For preparation I’ll ask you to do three things:

🌟Imagine you’ve been asked to introduce yourself to a group and you want to let them begin to know, like and trust you.

🌟Think about your achievements, your skills, what you do that makes a difference.

🌟Prepare your elevator pitch – your answer to the question ‘who are you and what do you do – and what makes you so great!’

And do let me know if there’s anything you’d specifically like to address – any worries, previous negative feedback, perceived weaknesses and so on.

Everything’s confidential.

I’ll share

🌟Some insider essentials that actors and great public speakers have always used

🌟My honest, respectful and constructive feedback

🌟Plus exercises and actions to take away.

We can do a lot in a power hour, and you’ll leave with plenty of homework to practice.

Philippa Hammond

Whether you need to speak for leadership, training and business, performance and social occasions, education, employability or as a great new life skill, I can help.

The ancient Greeks knew a thing or two about public speaking. They recognised that an audience needs to like, trust and understand you before they’ll start listening to you.

And they knew about ‘glossophobia, or ‘tongue terror’ – the fear of public speaking.

Me too. I’m standing on stage about three quarters of the way through the first ever performance of my first solo show. And then something terrifying happens. A voice in my head starts saying ‘You can’t do this. You don’t know your lines. They don’t like you.’ I freeze, my mind goes blank – and I walk off stage.

That could have been it for me as an actor. But the next night I went on – and I did it. And the audience came back. And the next year we took the show to Edinburgh, to four star reviews.

I beat the fear – and so can you.

Now I combine my pro actor / voice artist skills with my corporate learning and development consultancy experience in my Confident Public Speaking training.

I’ll share the secrets actors, speakers and trainers have used for centuries to deal with nerves and develop confidence, feel, look and sound better, and craft and deliver a great message about you and your business to any audience.

Simple, straightforward – anyone can learn, with Speaking Well In Public.

What they’re saying

Feel much better about presenting … Fantastic … I can’t wait to put it into practice … Exceeded all expectations … A great day with Philippa @TalkingSpeaking learning something different!’

[Received later:] ‘ My day with you continues to pay off. On Friday I organised a Dispute Resolution Seminar for about 60 lawyers. We had speakers from all over plus some very eminent High Court Judges. I did not even get nervous this time, after all after the National Conference with over 500 delegates, why would I?!?!’

Sharon Kay, Partner Kay & Pascoe LLP @SharonLKay

‘…. I highly recommend Philippa to anyone who would like to speak confidently and well in public.”

Claire Griffin, Claire Griffin Talent Ltd

” … thank you for the help with my recent public speaking foray … I don’t think the speech could have gone better … I had some lovely comments afterwards from people I really respect, who asked how I was so calm”

Joanne Edwards, chair of Resolution
