Level 2: Practical Public Speaking – Skills for improvers

A one-day course 10 – 4

Audience: Improver

The course is delivered to a small group of six delegates to allow maximum time for practical experience and effective feedback.

You may have attended our Confident Public Speaking course, have begun to address those public speaking nerves and are looking for more practice.

You may already have some public speaking experience and feel you would now benefit from a concentrated day of practical presentation experience, plus feedback to help you develop to a higher level and improve performance.

You may wish your team members to acquire further professional gloss and style when representing you and your organisation to colleagues, clients and the press.

About the course

Practical Public Speaking offers a concentrated practical workout, a public speaking boot camp that will have you on your feet and speaking to a small group, observing your peers delivering their prepared presentations and sharing honest, respectful and constructive feedback throughout the day. You will also receive valuable guidance for the future from the tutor, Philippa Hammond.

Pre-course preparation

Each delegate prepares three presentations to deliver on the day:

  • Elevator Pitch – a short one minute speech that answers the question “And what do you do?”
  • Business Presentation – a fifteen – twenty minute presentation on a business relevant topic

Any other exercises will be set on the day
