Course Content

The course offers proven strategies to not only ‘survive’ the experience, but actually to enjoy the whole process. The central aim of the day is to move from fearful to fearless public speaking. The course is very practical and each delegate will have made several speeches by the end of the day in a highly sympathetic and supportive environment. Feedback will be given with coaching to ensure great improvements are made. Delegates will learn how to control the energy caused by apprehension and how to channel this into creating a forceful speech that will be admired by all. The three crucial factors of successful speaking will be examined and methods for practice and fluency will be discussed. Delegates will be shown how to move from a word-for-word note-reading style to how to do without notes completely. All in all, this is a fun day and yet also a powerful day in transforming your whole approach and enjoyment of public speaking.
