Corporate Training (Public Speaking)

One-on-one * Small groups * Workshops

In our work with both corporations and individuals we have found most people find public speaking one of their greatest challenges. This is true whether giving presentations, making a pitch, holding meetings with clients or staff or talking to the media. To see people gain the confidence to enjoy - yes enjoy - speaking in public is enormously rewarding for them and for us. Motivation is key.

If you tell, people forget, if you show they listen, but if you involve them they will remember!

We believe 'learning by doing' is the best, most effective way to bring about changes in confidence and ability. We create a safe, supportive learning environment where people are encouraged to feel relaxed, motivated and able to take risks. And we use video assisted training for faster more effective results- you can see your progress. We also help with body language - including dress and image - because the silent signals are a huge part of your impact. You may be sending the wrong messages! Outline your needs to us and we will structure a course to meet your requirements.

Ask us about 'Strategic Story Telling for Business - a Powerful Tool' - either one-on-one or via our workshops.
