The course really works with beginners as well as people who might have done a day with me before. You have the chance to absorb and practise what you have learnt on the first day and work with it on the following day. It's all about learning the new fundamental skills and re-thinking what we need for public speaking. Beginners is a strange term here as I get some people who have been speaking for a long time but are doing the wrong stuff and still feel grim. So it really means people who haven't learnt the new approach that I teach.

On the course:
• You will learn to feel more comfortable in front of an audience, be able to think on your feet and become more at ease when you speak.
• You will understand what happens currently that gets in the way when we speak. We will talk about audiences and how we misunderstand what is happening in an audience. That's a key thing to understand.
•  You will learn how you can change that and then learn about the new skills (including Relational Presence) and mindsets we need to feel more comfortable in front of people.

On the second day we use what we've covered to find our own stories, who we are as speakers (sometimes it's the first time we can call ourselves a public speaker) and to focus more on content - always from a place of presence and inviting connection. A powerful place to learn to be. No previous experience required.

Your Course Guarantee:
Your money will be refunded if you don't think you have benefited from the course in any way. To qualify for a full refund, two simple conditions apply:
1.  you have to turn up on the course and be willing to explore.
2.  you e-mail me explaining why you are disappointed and how it didn't work for you (that way I can learn more and get better at what he does.)

Cancelling Your Course Place
• You can cancel or transfer to another course up to two weeks in advance with no charge.  
• Always let us know as early as possible if it looks like you can't make the date you have booked
• Cancellations made 13 clear days before the course or less or no-shows are not entitled to a REFUND or FREE transfer to another course(see note about insurance below). This is because you are paying for a particular course place which won't be filled if you cancel at short notice - by not attending the group will be smaller and other people get a less valuable public speaking experience. 
However, we will do our best to fill your place and if we get a replacement you can transfer to another course. 

Course Booking Insurance:  When you book it might be worth taking out a course cancellation insurance or checking with your home insurance to see if you are covered in the event of a travel delay or travel failure, bereavement or illness of a close relative if you cancel at short notice. We feel meanies when we don't refund if you or your child are ill but we are a small business and our only money comes from course fees. So please insure yourself and tell us early if you can't make it.  We will do our best to get a replacement for you but we can't guarantee we will get one.

If we need to cancel the course
Please be aware that courses occasionally have to be cancelled because of shortage of numbers, illness, venue issues/availability or other factors. Of course we will do our best not to. In fact it's really very rare. But it's worthwhile booking hotel rooms etc that can be cancelled.Please note that we're not liable for additional expenses. We will of course offer a full refund or to transfer to another course.
