New courses coming soon in Spring 2018

 I am currently working on bringing on some additional courses. There will be 4 courses in total - in two streams:
a.  For people who are very scared of public speaking (2 courses).
b. For people who want to learn to connect authentically and further develop their public speaking and presenting skills (2 courses).

Read on to find out more...

a. For people who are very scared of public speaking:

1. Taking your place in the world  (TYP)
This is my existing 2 day course that I have run for 16 years... This has been a course that already has changed many people's lives and is the starting place if you are really scared of public speaking.  It's aimed at anyone who is scared or very scared of public speaking. This includes speakers who have been confident before and may have lost their mojo for some reason. This is a niche that I have developed over the years and is a course that I run about 40 times a year. You can also add a coaching package to this course for some pre-course coaching.

2. NEW 'Deepening Confidence', 2 day course
This is a follow on course from TYP and explores further ways to deepen your confidence. We will still be using public speaking but also pair work and individual work.  Confidence is all about trusting ourselves more, it's far more than just managing anxiety well.  Mindfulness, Compassion, Building Resilience, Purpose, shift of Focus and Self-Acceptance are key parts of the course. 

b. For people who want to learn to connect authentically and further develop their public speaking and presenting skills

1. NEW Authentic Presenter level ONE. Two day course:
For people who want to become more authentic speakers, to learn how to connect with audiences better. This authentic connection is vital to good speaking. Of course you may have some fear around public speaking but it's not overwhelming. Based on the very successful Taking your place in the world course but it's aimed at people who not very scared. You maybe, for instance, a regular presenter but want to move away from a dependence on powerpoint and think on your feet.  Questions that the course asks are: What do you need to let go of, to be in your personal power? Can you really let yourself have the space in front of people, can you slow down, pause and still shine?  How to develop the the courage to be passionate and fully present? Can you move away from script to talking conversationally? 
Open to anyone who wants to improve their public speaking but are not overwhelmed by fear (see above for those courses).
You may have done 'Taking your place in the world' and want another course to deepen your experience. 

2. NEW Authentic Presenter level TWO. Two day course with an extra day a month later:
This advanced course is aimed at people who want to become more powerful speakers and better presenters. We will re-think how you develop presentations, look at the power of story, we will also look at finding your unique voice (what makes you special?) and of course, how to serve audiences better. 
Authentic Presenter level one is a prerequisite for this course.
