Improve your public speaking and communication skills

How do you feel about public speaking? Do you relish the opportunity or wish you could be better at it? Whether you’re a high flying executive or you’ve simply got a wedding speech coming up - speaking in public is something very few people look forward to. Worse still, it's not something that comes easily to most of us.

Luckily, public speaking can be taught to anyone. So whether you're looking for help preparing for a specific event, or would like to improve your public speaking/presenting skills in general, I offer 1:1 or group sessions to turn that weakness into a strength.

We can focus on presenting in general, or if you prefer we can focus on a particular area such as:

• Overcoming fear and nerves.

• Preparation and rehearsal.

• Creating a great presentation structure.

• How to speak in an engaging style.

• Taking questions from an audience.

It’s up to you how many sessions you have - the recommended approach is to book one at a time as sometimes that’s all it takes. Location is flexible and most lessons usually take place in Canary Wharf or at your home/work address (locations outside London zones 1-2 or Fleet, Hampshire may incur a travel cost). Timing is also flexible, with most sessions taking place Monday - Friday between 9am and 7:00pm.

Prices are charged at £40 per hour - some people only require one session, while others may prefer something regular. Either way you are not committed to any minimum number and it is recommended that you only book one at a time.

So whether you have a big work presentation coming up, something more informal, or would just like to improve your public speaking/presenting skills in general - get in touch and ensure you're memorable for all the right reasons.
