If you fear public speaking, you are not alone. Surveys have shown that over 85% of people are terrified of speaking in public or suffer from speech anxiety. This fear afflicts many in the business world, whether you are called upon to speak at an internal meeting, pitching a deal to clients, or asked to present in a room full of your colleagues and managers.

Our Presentation and Communication Skills course will develop your confidence in presenting and public speaking. We teach you to inspire, persuade and motivate any audience to whom you speak, and to master your presence, poise and impact to make sure your message is heard. You will learn to contain your stress, thereby putting both you and your audience at ease. You will learn the structure, flow and ‘bounce points’ to make a compelling presentation, ensuring it contains a clear message, remains interesting and is impactful.

“Thoroughly engaging, concise and useful. An enjoyable day that has proved very insightful.”

Weatherbys, October 2015.
