You are not alone when you get those feelings at the thought of speaking or presenting in front of others, to the media, or even in meetings. But have you ever considered just how much you are limiting your potential by staying quiet, or undermining how good it could be if you focus on the delivery rather than the nerves?
Public Speaking enables you to:
Hence it is not only vital for people who stand up and give presentations, but anyone who may have to communicate with others; in professional, educational, meetings, group, sports, or social situations. Mastering or fine tuning Public Speaking is not just about standing at the front with a microphone, but also effective communication and presence in meetings. It can give you an advantage that others may lack, even if their knowledge, interaction, or message may have been better had it been presented as well as you will be able to.
Don't just avoid missing opportunities, but also open doors to much more potential; and enjoy the opportunity instead of being paralysed by the necessity!
We can also provide courses internally for organisations , either bespoke or as recommended by us, and either as a one off or structured training program.

"Chris has an extremely relaxed and professional approach to delivering speaker training. He was able to bring to the front the real issues behind presenting nerves, and offer simple and very effective tips to relax and deliver a great presentation. I would recommend Chris to anyone who would like help becoming a more effective presenter.
It was clear that the day was well prepared and thought out, and tackled in a systematic way, which built through the day, the key aspects which holds back a presenter. I liked the way it was an original approach, with your own experiences and self-taught knowledge used to teach me how I could improve.”
"Thank you Chris and congratulations on getting your training CPD accredited it certainly is worth it as it is brilliant. I am not scared of public speaking but I really was not sure I was getting my message across. I now know what I am doing right (some of that I had not realised) and where and how I need to improve on the structure of my talks. I have to say I now feel much more confident and preparing my presentations is much easier and faster as I now know what I am doing rather than hoping it will make sense to the listeners. I am looking forward to many more opportunities to present."
"I attended a recent public speaking session with Chris and learn't a lot his consitent approach and ability to help you individually on how you can improve, the techniques that you need and he lets you know the things you don't even realise you are doing is really helpful, I came away with a lot that I can improve on and he gave me the tools to do this and I realised that it is not just me that gets nervous and how to chanel this into positivity, would highly recommend attending any courses available, it will help everyone in a positive way"
