From the podium to the boardroom, this one-day workshop is for business professionals who want to learn how to stand up and convey ideas with passion … inform with pizzazz … and motivate people to take action.

This one day Public Speaking Course concentrates on effective public speaking, particularly dealing with nerves and anxiety.

It offers simple, easy to practice tools to help you cope with nerves, get your message across memorably, structure your material for the best impact and speak effectively to audiences of varied sizes. 

We start with basic public speaking tips and tricks and move quickly into actually delivering talks - you will be on your feet and presenting like a professional in no time at all! Use sophisticated techniques like voice modulation, attention focusing and idea pyramids for creating impact and audience persuasion.

It is fun and effective with plenty of opportunities to practice.
