Dates of the courses are below, please scroll down...

intro

Our one-day 'Fundamentals of Public Speaking' course is open to everyone. This offers a short introduction to re-thinking public speaking. Most people find this works but the two day course will help you to gain a deeper understanding and be more effective. This course gives you the new skills you need to make public speaking a lot easier. It's a course that has been run for the last 16 years and has changed many people's lives.
Group size 6-10 people so you get plenty of individual attention.
Speak to me or Rebecca on 01255 425300 if you want some help on choosing or email me.

You will learn how to:
• be more at ease when you are speaking in public or in small groups
• understand how to be more self-confident and what that means
• get attention without needing to 'perform'
• connect with the audience without being overwhelmed by fear
• improve personal and professional communication skills
• put into practice the 'New fundamentals', the new thinking and new skills we need to make public speaking a lot easier

course content

The day works in small steps but here is an overview:
Setting up the day - I will be explaining how we are going to work together and how to make it as safe as possible to explore public speaking. People often talk about how quickly the trust is built up and what a great group of people it is to work with. That's because the day is set up with care. I know that quite a few people may be nervous so it's an essential first step.
• We explore questions about what happens when we speak publicly - and what gets in the way? It's a really important part of the course. We need to understand how our thinking gets in the way. And it's really good to see that you are not alone with what you think about public speaking. And why evolution may play a bigger part in our fears than you realise!
Outlining the new fundamentals - a big part of the day is where we explore and practise the new thinking/skills we need to be more at ease when we are the centre of attention. These skills are explored in small steps. Building up confidence as we go through the day with experiential exercises. Small steps with reflection and re-thinking. And when we can think differently about public speaking we get to do some practise.

The “back-to-basics” unpressured approach was great. Took a while to learn what there was to learn - that its about taking stuff away - rather than adding stuff. A hard thing to “teach” but it worked well.
