"Excellent! Really boosted my confidence – more than any confidence building course. Thanks so much!"

We know public speaking can be daunting. That's why we work hard to make sure our workshop is a safe, friendly and fun environment where you can practise your skills and develop your confidence at the same time.

With a background in drama and performance, we use our extensive experience to provide you with new techniques for engaging and captivating your audience.

This three hour public speaking workshop will use drama techniques to develop public speaking skills and confidence.

We will cover:

- identifying common issues with public speaking and how to overcome them

- outline the key elements of crafting a short speech

- practising tone of voice and using this for maximum impact

- identify and practise storytelling as a great tool to engage your audience

This workshop is good for:

-people who wish to gain more confidence public speaking or speaking in groups or meetings

-people who wish to develop their public speaking skills

-people who are experienced and wish to learn a new perspective on delivery from a performance and drama angle.
