For some people success is very important, for others it is less so. Not everyone wants to be a winner. Many people are happy to be mediocre, ust satisfied to be ordinary. But others want to be the best they can be and that usually involves being a good public speaker.
Public speaking is one activity that sorts the sheep from the goats. Run-of-the-mill speakers are the norm. Our colleagues and friends are surprisingly tolerant of “death-by-PowerPoint” presentations, mumbled banalities and weak jokes. Some wallflowers are so brilliant at what they do that their poor public speaking is tolerated and ignored. But you can’t rely on talent alone, especially if your world is a competitive one.
One-to-one coaching is the most effective and efficient way to learn public speaking. It’s personalised, it’s completely confidential and you have the maximum opportunity to practise the skills you’re learning.
However, group training still provides a lot of value. If you are an organisation with many people wanting/needing public speaking training, please get in touch and we’ll discuss how to organise it so they get maximum benefit from the course.
Our public speaking and presentation skills training courses show you how words are only a part of the process. You will learn how to:
- Overcome nerves
- Look and feel confident
- Build rapport
- Enhance your business skills
- Use your voice to effect; and
- Add impact and interest.
You will discover how to ensure that your presentations are memorable, relevant and impressive. Importantly you will discover that increased confidence and skill will mean that you actually enjoy public speaking opportunities.
Having presentation skills and being confident in public speaking will increase your career opportunities, as delivering professional presentations to clients and business partners is becoming an essential part of today’s business world.
