CONFIDENT SPEAKING

Only a small percentage of people feel naturally confident when speaking to a group of people, whatever the size. Speaking with confidence is often acquired through repetition, fun and experience.

However, you may feel your voice doesn’t convey your thoughts or emotions effectively. Or you may feel overwhelmed when speaking to a large group. In these cases speech coaching can give tremendous support to enhance your speaking skills and be a more effective communicator, whether for your work or in social situations. By enrolling in individual speech coaching sessions you can learn to achieve the following:

  • Speak confidently anywhere, to any audience
  • Command attention from your audience
  • Feel confident at social events
  • Speak from your heart, not just from your head
  • Get your message across the first time
  • Make yourself heard in a crowd
  • Get that job you've always wanted

For most, the road to developing confident speaking is a journey of self-discovery and personal development.

PRESENTATION SKILLS

Is presenting your work a problem? Does your voice lack expression?

If your voice and body quIver from nerves, you experience mental absence or your throat goes dry easily, take heart. You can learn to develop presentation strategies punctuated with expressive speaking to help you achieve success.

Coaching sessions include:

  • Identifying and addressing problem areas
  • Learning presentation strategies
  • Reviewing and revising current presentations
  • Engaging in mock presentations

Whatever your presentation challenge is, speech coaching can be invaluable

PUBLIC SPEAKING

Public speaking is feared more than death. But it needn’t produce such fear.

Public speaking follows very simple rules. You will learn these rules plus discover the range of your voice, the power of your speech and how conviction, persuasion, emotion, humour and warmth are tools to be developed and used to make your public talk successful.

Through simple exercises and games the sting and mystery is taken out of public speaking. You will learn to rely on your voice, relax in yourself and build your confidence, talk by talk. You will learn to put your audience at ease while they listen to your every word. Eventually, you will also learn to be self-reflective, to be your own critic and tutor.

Whether you are called upon to give a public speech for work, for a special occasion or for a social event, a few sessions of speech coaching can take the edge off that nagging feeling of fear and replace it with a growing feeling of confidence.

As King George VI said “I have a voice!” Let yours ring out.
