If an organisation’s employees, management, and Directors have the ability to speak confidently in front of others, with conviction and passion, can master storytelling authoritatively and engagingly, and get their message over in a compelling way, then it will enable them to even better:

  • Inform people (e.g. internal meetings/presentations, training, sales pitches, reviews)
  • Motivate people (e.g. sales pitches, internal meetings/presentations, stakeholder meetings/presentations)
  • Win over/persuade people (e.g. sales pitches, speeches/presentations by CEO's/Directors, stakeholder meetings/presentations)

Being adept at speaking in public 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 have more knowledge or a stronger message. If they don’t present as well as you do, you gain the advantage.

Our courses are 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.

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.

Providing such training is seen as a very beneficial investment in people by both organisations and individuals, and is thus also often used as a motivator for members of the organisation at every level of the hierarchy.

"Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't... If you look after your staff, they will look after your customers." - Richard Branson

  • “Chris came in specifically to deliver a 90-minute taster session for Nationwide. This session covered the benefits, techniques and tips for presenting in a variety of situations. I was really impressed how Chris tailored the content for the group. In his unique style Chris role modelled and delivered an engaging talk on how best to present and conquer what can sometimes be all consuming nerves. Along with several anecdotes and real life practical tips, the group left motivated and ready to put this all into practice. If you need someone to help you deliver presentations and speak with confidence in any arena – then Chris can help you to Open Doors…”

  • "Open Dawes Training - Communication Skills that Remove Limits. I had the pleasure of attending this course and I took away so much knowledge and insperation. Confidence was an issue but Chris demonstrated how planning, and format of presentation can work"

  • "I attended a 1 day 'Open Dawes' session with a group of my colleagues last week, Chris provided loads of fantastic information on every aspect of public speaking - I have taken away a lot of useful tips and ideas. Cant wait to put them into practice!"

    Edward Jackson - General Insurance Manager

  • "Public speaking, presenting, OMG!!Apparently I appear calm and confident......... well I can tell you my stomach is in knots, I have sweaty palms, a racing heartbeat.... the works. Chris provided a group of us with some sound advice, some hints and tips and some background to enable us to improve. The course handbook with all my notes is still out, a quick read to remind me will happen often until I feel calm and collected. This may never happen but I feel better prepared for my next presentation already. For me, Chris's course has provided enough pointers for me to concentrate on one at a time to consistently improve my skills. At the very least, this course highlighted some Do's and Do not's. At the most it has provided me with a framework for constant improvement. Will I be a great public speaker? Maybe, eventually........ will I be a better presenter? Definitely"
