Life’s a Pitch: Two Part Presentation Skills Programme

Change how you feel about public speaking and develop your presentation style to advance your career

This transformational course has been designed to change how you think and feel about public speaking.  We know what it feels like to be in a big job and be terrified of public speaking.  What makes this course different is our commitment to helping you enjoy public speaking rather than dread it, and our focus on long term impact.  That’s why at the end of day 1, you will buddy up with someone else on the course and support each other in moving forward with your public speaking journey in between sessions.

The two days of training you attend will be one month apart.  In the training, you will learn how to develop a new mindset around public speaking so that you feel more comfortable taking up opportunities to present.  You’ll pick up key techniques on how to manage nerves, learn body language and voice techniques to present with impact, and take part in a variety of speaking exercises as you build up your confidence.  Most of the day will be spent speaking, not listening.  At the end of the course, you’ll take away an action plan to continue making progress on your public speaking journey.

“I can honestly say that in 12 years, this is the best training I have ever received. The trainer was inspirational, and I am, for the first, time working towards overcoming my fear of public speaking; I can truly see a light at the end of the tunnel… If I had received this kind of help when I was young, I don’t believe I would have carried my phobia around with me for my adult working life.”Helen Parsons, St Dominics College
“At the beginning of the day I rated my public speaking confidence level a 2 out of 10, and by the end I was a 7. The trainer was excellent, I think she is born to do it. She’s got a very positive vibe and this increased the energy levels in the room.”Rithma Fonseka, IT Manager
“I can’t rate Love Public Speaking highly enough. As a CEO, public speaking is essential to my role but I’ve been avoiding it for a long time. The training here was well beyond your normal technique training – it was all about mindset and approach, along with the skills and it really worked for me. Utterly transformative for my career.”C. Forshew, CEO, Seed
