One Day Group Course

CPD Standards Office provider 21679

Groups will be limited to 10 people at most, to make sure that the maximum is achieved from these courses, but still get useful input from other attendees from other walks of life and experiences. A fun and engaging opportunity to tackle the usual challenges that we all face when having to speak in front of others; whether that is 2 or 200 people (or more...), speaking from personal experiences from education, social, business, and media environments.

Courses held at exciting neutral venues throughout the UK.

**Please inform us if you require the CPD Credits from your time spent on our coaching to ensure that we can prepare the certificates appropriately**
