Life’s a Pitch: virtual presentation skills training
A 6-week virtual course where you will develop your presentation skills for in-person and virtual presentations
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 technique in presenting on camera. You will join a one-hour Zoom lesson every week where you will be taught techniques from an expert trainer before taking part in speaking exercises with critical feedback. There is only room for 6 participants on this course to ensure everyone gets plenty of presenting practise in and personal feedback from the trainer.
Since the main problem for people when it comes to public speaking is overcoming nerves, this course begins by changing how you members think and feel about public speaking so that you’re more comfortable putting yourself forward for presenting opportunities. The rest of the course is dedicated to developing yourpresentation skills we work on a new area each week: voice, body language, gravitas, presentation content, PowerPoint tips, and increasing impact when presenting virtually.
This is highly practical course where you will take part in a variety of speaking exercises in every 1 hour virtual session.

“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
