All great speakers were once bad speakers and no baby was ever born knowing how to rally a crowd. Public speaking is therefore a learnable skill. But, do you feel nervous when speaking in public? Do you want to improve your confidence to deliver persuasive presentations? Or is your career being hindered by a lack of public speaking skills? You might have a great idea or a story to tell, but if you can’t speak for yourself, someone else will, and if they do they might not have your best interests in mind.

If you want to speak for yourself, this bespoke-made, five-lesson Public Speaking course will give you the tips, techniques and traits you need to become a powerful orator. Created by combining the best ideas from over three-hundred works on public speaking from the ancient to modern age, this course is truly comprehensive to your needs.

In the first session we’ll have an extensive Q&A to understand your needs, strengths and weaknesses and you’ll then have the option of learning a myriad of techniques, with common modules being:

 

  • How to overcome the fear of public speaking
  • How to improve your voice
  • How to improve your vocabulary
  • How to act on stage or create a stage persona
  • How to engage an audience and work with stage staff
  • How to research your audience and plan an appropriate talk
  • How to recall, write and recite spellbinding stories
  • How to use ancient persuasive rhetoric
  • Why great speakers don’t use PowerPoint
  • On camera confidence and interview techniques
  • Cross-cultural presentation styles
  • How to handle a Q&A
  • How to identify and deal with hecklers

  • And much more…

By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and confidence you need to deliver dynamic and engaging presentations that leave a lasting impression. Plus, you’ll receive extensive personalised feedback and support exercises after each lesson to help you practice at home.

Richard was keen to help as much as possible. He asked a few questions at the beginning of my session in order to ascertain my level which meant we did not waste time on what I already knew. I was very impressed by his professional and transparent approach towards helping me improve my public speaking.

—A. Thania

Richard gave me pointers that instantly improved my voice and other things to work on, as well as pointing out my current strong points. I was nervous to start with, but it was a lot of fun! Speaking is such a basic thing and I think everyone could benefit from taking classes like this.

—J. Brown

Richard has been a fantastic coach for me. His style is friendly and supportive, yet he still delivers that crucial criticism and helps you to really improve. His professional demeanour is inspiring and his sessions are always well thought out, focused and above all else helpful.
