legs of men and women, crowd, people taking their place in the world

The two day course that I offer is called
'Taking your place in the world'


dates of the course are below, please scroll down...

The taking your place in the world course is aimed at people who don't like public speaking or are struggling with it. This 2 day course  has been running for 19 years (I run other tailored courses for organisations). And its the main course I run
It will help you to learn how to feel more at ease in front of an audience, change how you feel about being the centre of attention, learn to speak publicly (in a conversational manner rather than performing) and to create a connection with the audience. Many people who come on this course have found public speaking tricky to say the least. 
 I know you might be nervous but time and time again people have said "I wish I had done this course 5 or 10 years ago.".
This course is taught in Bristol, London and Manchester.

The course really works with beginners as well as people who have been speaking for awhile but still are anxious. 
 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.
