Grow Your Confidence Ready For Your Next Big Speech

So many of us feel real anxiety when we're offered a slot to speak at a seminar or a conference. And, for others, we go out of our way to avoid any opportunity to give a speech in public.

Of course when we consider our own job prospects and career progression, this isn't terribly useful. Because the very fact that we aren't being seen or heard at conferences can make us unnoticed.

And that doesn't feel too great when we stop and think about others leaping up the corporate ladder. But the real problem is that we know we could do it. We really could give that speech if we had the opportunity and the know-how.

And that's the essence. We want the confidence and the skill-set to show what we can do and how we do it.

Because when you give a great speech at a conference you unflinchingly exude authority. And that's definitely a bankable asset.

Public speaking training can certainly give you the skill-set and confidence that you need.

It's a fact. We know it after so many years training people to give those very speeches at conferences around the world.

So, this online course gives you a real insight into how you too can give a great, effective speech in public.

What’s In The Course?

You've got four chapters and seven lessons to work though in this online course.


Chapter 1: Change Your Habits Of A Lifetime

In this module you'll discover how your conversational habits of a lifetime can hold you back when you want to give a speech. So, the first lesson, How To Eliminate Ums and Ers From Your Public Speaking is self-explanatory. You will aim to stop the ums and ers that you use as conversational fillers. And in the second lesson, Introduce The Pause To Your Speech, you'll swap those ums and ers for meaningful pauses.


Chapter 2: Keep Your Habits Of A Lifetime

In this module you'll discover that there are two conversational traits that you want to keep. So, in the third lesson, How To Expect More With Tone And Emphasis we explain how to keep yourself natural. That's because you want to use tone and stress to help your audience to understand your meaning. And, in the fourth lesson, Use Your Words Well you'll find out how to use simple words and simple sentences. Plus you'll want to avoid jargon, abbreviations and acronyms!


Chapter 3: More Habits Of A Lifetime That You Need To Change

Typically we don't repeat ourselves in conversation. And if we do, then someone's bound to say something to us about it. However, when it comes to your public speaking, you'll have to change that habit of a lifetime. Because repetition works really well in a conference speech. But, as a speaker, it takes quite a bit of getting used to.


Chapter 4: Putting It All Together

Finally you'll discover why the five building blocks of public speaking work together. And it's because your audience has a problem. A problem of distraction. And it's your job to help them with clear, concise communication. So, you aim to do that and engage your audience, confidently and skillfully.

Great Value Training

We like face to face training at client premises, hotels or business centres around the UK. We also like to keep our trainee numbers to six per public training course or ten for a corporate course, where everyone knows one another.


If you want face to face training first and foremost then you can always join one of our regular scheduled public training courses ('lockdowns' excepted). You can reserve your place on these face to face courses for £397 plus VAT or £300 plus VAT when you book well in advance.


Alternatively you can always aim to boost your own skills with some solid tuition, practice sessions and examples with this online course. And at £97 including VAT that's excellent value. Because it includes all the important tuition from the morning session of a public course and you have the chance to focus on your own learning and skills without interruption. Of course you'll need to provide your own refreshments!

Why can we be so sure? Because when we teach the Five Building Blocks on our face to face courses we see how participant confidence and skills really do grow. Yes, it's face to face instruction, and that's clearly somewhat different to this online course. But, this is the same teaching, the same training.

Good luck.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to do before I start this online course?

Nothing at all. Because you don't need prior experience of a speech in class, a seminar or at a conference to join this course. So, you don't need to prepare or complete any reading!

How much real experience do I need?

You can't discount good experience of public speaking. But if that prior experience leaves you feeling dreadful, that's no good. So, it's never too early for you to consider how you can build your own public speaking foundations for success. Because your subsequent experience will be that much better.

Can anyone become a great public speaker?

Yes. Because the essential toolkit items are: skills, confidence and enthusiasm.

Now you might fake sincerity or passion for a while, but you can't fake skills, confidence and enthusiasm for long. And why would you want to? Because you can always grow those public speaking skills and you'll be more confident as a result.

What skills will I learn?

In this course you will learn about the Five Building Blocks of successful public speaking...the foundations that everyone needs to give a great speech. 

Can I really boost my own confidence?

Confidence comes with skill. So when you have the skills you'll be more confident as a result.

Please note that pre-speech nerves will always be useful and they keep us on our toes. But we're not frightened of a speech, since we have the skills to deliver it.

What are the next steps?

Just complete the course, and then look out for a speaking opportunity. At work, perhaps?

Give yourself time to plan and prepare your speech to the timescale expected, research your audience, refine and rehearse your words and you'll do your best.

Build You Own Skills

Our goal is for you to give the most effective speeches possible. And our training courses aim for that goal every time we train people like you.

This online course is no different. So, it contains all the learning resources of a full morning's face to face training session. Our one regret is that we can't offer tea, biscuits and lunch. But that's a small drawback for an online training session!

We hope you enjoy this course.
