6-week virtual presentation skills training course
Our customers rate us as Excellent on Trustpilot.
Being able to present well is a critical skill in almost any professional job, but 75% of us admit to a fear of public speaking, and most of us go to great lengths to avoid it. In fact, studies show that 1 in 3 of us would go as far as to reject our dream job if it meant we had to do it.
The result? Those who shout the loudest end up getting promoted, and a great deal of talent falls under the radar. Great ideas fail to get aired in meetings with 10+ people; and new job opportunities get missed as people struggle to show strong enough presentation skills in virtual and face-to-face meetings.
This virtual course is designed to help you build confidence in presenting (both virtual and face-to-face) as you develop your speaking style, gravitas and presentation skills in a small group. Every week, you will watch a 1 hour minute video lesson at home with presenting tips and videos of great speakers who demonstate those tips, before you join a live one-hour Zoom session with an expert trainer where you will put those presenting techniques into practice in speaking exercises. You'll practise a wide variety of speaking exercises, some standing up and some sitting down so that you are developing your presentation skills for both in-person presenting and virtual presenting.
As part of the course, you will have an intensive 90-minute 1:1 virtual presentation skills session with the course leader to help you build on your strengths and deal with any personal weaknesses or speech habits you are looking to overcome.
There is only room for 8 participants on this course to ensure everyone gets plenty of presenting practice in and personal feedback from the trainer. This course is all about getting real life speaking practice in on weekly basis to build your presenting skills steadily and consistently over the 8 weeks.
Since the main problem for people when it comes to public speaking is overcoming nerves, this course begins by changing how you think and feel about public speaking so that you're more comfortable putting yourself forward for presenting opportunities at work. The rest of the course is dedicated to developing your presentation skills we work on a new area each week, culminating in a final presentation that you will present to the group at the end of the course which puts all the techniques you have learnt into practice. The modules we cover are as follows:
Module 1: Developing the right mindset to present and strategies to overcome nerves
Module 2: Presenting techniques: body language, voice and mastering the art of speaking off-the-cuff
Module 3: Virtual presentations and meetings: getting your set up right and nailing your talk-to-camera skills
Module 4: Building your gravitas and speaking with authority
Module 5: How to build high-impact presentations: structure, content and storytelling techniques
Module 6: Audience engagement technques for in-person presenting and virtual presenting
Module 7: Tips for PowerPoint presentations, getting your set up right and techniques for using notes
Module 8: Goal-setting exercise to use public speaking to advance your career and how to use the Facebook group to stay motivated and accountable with public speaking
You can fit the online learning and your private coaching session around your own schedule, but the live speaking practice sessions on Zoom will take place at the same time every week.

“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
