COURSE OVERVIEW

Become a confident, engaging public speaker. Learn how to keep your audience engaged throughout your speech and become someone who enjoys speaking to an audience.

For a significant proportion of us public speaking rates as one of our greatest fears. It is certainly not something to enjoy or look forward to.

With the right training and practice, anyone can become an accomplished speaker. Learn the proven techniques to deal with stage fright.

This fun, practical one-day public speaking course will show you the step-by-step process used by experienced speakers to get and keep their audience’s attentionĀ and ensure that they deliver a great speech every time.

  1. FOUNDATIONS: What is public speaking? Why is it important?

  3. THE BASICS: The 3 essential ingredients that make a good speaker and good speech.

AM I READY FOR THIS COURSE?

You do not need any specific experience or skills to join this training course.

To get the most from it we do ask people to prepare some notes on how they have prepared for and given speeches in the past.

We also ask them to bring along a very short section of a speech that they have given previously to use when practising.
