I never thought I'd use the Clifton Suspension Bridge as an image because it's a bit of cliche. I wish this was my photo but it's from istock picture library and its a great way of seeing something we take for granted in a different way.

Public Speaking Courses in Bristol

This is where I started running my courses. I've been living in this area since 1982 and even though I'm now living in Bath, I think my heart really is in Bristol. For a list of all my courses across the country and for more details click here.

Public speaking is truly a nightmare for me, and I really had my doubts that John could do anything about that. But John absolutely proved me wrong. That really took me by surprise, and for me, this course went WAY further than just public speaking. I truly came out with a different perspective of "the audience", "the crowd", "the other person," and the way I feel and hold myself when I'm speaking in front of them. He simplifies it and explains it perfectly. Thank you so much John. I will never forget these two days.

John's two day course is a no brainer. You'll walk away understanding a lot more about the reasons why you feel the way you do about public speaking and you may just realise that you've turned a corner in other areas of your life too!

John's course is the most valuable course (including my degree) that I've ever been on, in regard to the positive impact it will continue to have on my wellbeing and ability to progress in my career. Of course it was a big challenge in some ways, yet I've felt so uplifted and free during and after the course. The thought put into its design is considerate to the feelings of the participants, and the order of activities and talks makes total sense. John created a safe and supportive environment for the whole group, addressing that all present were in support of each other, and setting some ground rules to enable trust. I actually had great fun both being in the audience and being in front of the audience, and we were all a little sad when it came to the end of a wonderful, life changing and memorable weekend. I fully recommend doing the course!
