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 how good it could be if you were able to focus on the delivery rather than the nerves?
Public Speaking enables you to:
But being adept at speaking in public speaking isn’t vital only for people who stand up and give presentations. It’s a necessary skill for anyone who has to communicate with others, be that in a professional, educational, group, media, sports, or social situation.
And good public speaking isn’t just about fine-tuning what you do at the front with a microphone. It is also about effective communication and presence in meetings. Great public speaking skills give you the edge over others – even in cases where they may have more knowledge or a stronger message. If they don’t communicate/present as well as you do, you gain the advantage.
This investment in your personal and professional development doesn't just help you make sure you aren't missing opportunities, but also open doors to much more potential; and to enjoy the opportunity instead of being paralysed by the necessity! Our coaching is created from a unique mix of expertise in business, social, and media presenting/speaking, rather than just one or the other. This gives us the edge to help you have the edge - no matter what your requirement or motivation.
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. Examples have included Sales teams, staff who provide training, Management teams, Directors, CEO's etc., Graduates, Apprentices, and anyone else who has to participate in meetings, presentations, discussions, exhibitions/seminars, networking meetings, etc.
Courses and workshops are held either 1-to-1 (one or more sessions, or complete coaching/mentoring program) or in small groups (maximum of 10) on selected dates around the UK, and help address nerves, speech/presentation delivery, structure of presentations or talks, specific skills, and many tips to ensure that your voice will be heard and hit the mark.

"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"
