Speaker Skills offers highly effective training and coaching for clients who need to master the art of professional speaking. Clients leave our sessions feeling confident, prepared and with a full understanding of the skills required to deliver dynamic and powerful presentations.

All of our programs are highly specialized, providing expertise and feedback on all aspects of public speaking and presenting.

So, what happens when we first meet?

Participants receive an initial evaluation of their voice dynamics, platform mechanics and presentational style. We ask clients to come prepared with a short 2-3 minute presentation which we assess. This provides a clear understanding of your concerns and the areas where you need help through our customized program—tailored to you. We will equip you with strategies, techniques and skills to develop excellence in presenting and public speaking, and turn your weaknesses into strengths.

The public speaking training you receive involves competencies including:

relaxation techniques… breathing & posture excellence… self-confidence strategies…
stress reduction … fear eradication… non-verbal communication skills…
rehearsal techniques… speech preparation… voice care & development…
professional platform mechanics… voice dynamics… voice projection…
accent reduction… speech impediment eradication… interview skills & techniques…media training … and more.

Learn the skills and strategies involved to become a polished and professional public speaker at a national and international level.

How do you structure your training and coaching?

We structure our public speaking training and coaching through our interactive workshops, one-to-one training and coaching sessions either in-person or online. We also provide effective and supportive instruction with our recent collection of audiobooks, manuals and DVDs.

From our initial consultation, we’ll suggest what level and amount of training and coaching you require. We cater from novice speakers and presenters to those with more experience. We offer 3 different levels of public speaking training and coaching.
