The Short Version:

  • A full-day of high-impact public speaking training for professionals.
  • Strictly small group size to ensure everyone gets personal coaching.
  • Led by an expert public speaking trainer who regularly coaches leaders & executives.
  • Ideal for beginner/intermediate speakers who wish to overcome nerves, build confidence and develop outstanding communication skills.

Are you ready to become a Powerful Business Communicator?

Discover what the top 1% of presenters know that 99% of Public Speaking courses will never teach you.

We’re looking for 6 ambitious professionals, managers, consultants, business owners, or future leaders to join us for a one-day masterclass in Public Speaking and Leadership Communication.

Are you like any of our other clients?

  • You’re great at what you do, but you struggle to communicate your knowledge with confidence.
  • You start sentences with “so”, end sentences with “yeah”, or fill your sentences with “um” or “ah”.
  • You regularly speak at work or for business, but people say you sound monotone or lack charisma.
  • You get opportunities to speak, but don’t know what to say or how to express your ideas.

The BEST way for you to be known, liked and trusted in your industry, your workplace, or even in the meeting room is to become a great public speaker.


Did a voice pop into your head and say "you can't do it"?

Maybe you feel like an imposter when you stand up in front of an audience?

This is the reason why most people never become great at public speaking, but we've helped hundreds of professionals to do precisely that.
