People, who are good public speakers, appear professional, knowledgeable, expert-like. They tend to have faster progressing careers and build better understanding of ideas they promote. Yet, often public speaking is feared of more than death and avoided by many at all times.

The good news is that it can be learnt. With you just showing up and our public speaking expert sharing her expertise and experience, you will advance fast. And even if you are a seasoned speaker, our training is most likely to shed a new light on public speaking and help you develop your skills.

Our public speaking training is designed for fluent speakers of English.


Aim of the training

During the workshop, we will dive into the qualities that make a speech memorable, how to open and close it. We will also dwell on how to prepare a speech and will experiment with storytelling as a means of building rapport with the audience. We will talk about difficult situations that may arise and how to handle them. As we meet to explore and learn, you will also have an opportunity to practice your speeches in “laboratory environment”. And finally, we will work on fear and stress that usually accompanies speakers and on beliefs that may hamper your full success.
