Skills for business
Whether you’re a freelancer, a new startup or well established in your field, the ability to stand up and speak in public is a vital part of your personal and professional toolkit – yet so many people are nervous of public speaking.

Skills for leaders and managers
Leaders need to communicate an organisation’s vision and goals. The ability to speak well in public is a vital leadership skill – yet it can be a task that people dread. And so often it’s assumed that if you’re in a position of leadership, then you must be able to speak well.

Skills for artists and writers in business
As an artist or writer you’re also a business person, and you may need to promote your work to audiences, or to pitch for funding – yet so many find public speaking difficult.

About the course
The fact is that these skills don’t magically appear with a new business or a promotion … but they can be learned.

Our new one-day course will introduce you to the skills – and the pleasures – of Confident Public Speaking.

Learn how to master nerves and develop a compelling and inspiring personal presence.

You’ll discover why we get nervous, what nerves do to us and how we can deal with them, and explore techniques for developing a strong, confident voice and effective body language to support your message.

This course features lots of practical speaking experience, useful exercises and helpful feedback in an enjoyable, safe environment. You’ll also receive valuable guidance for the future.
