This one-day course takes a different approach to traditional presentation skills courses.

Using poetry, prose and scripts, it’ll help you find and use your voice, taking the first step to being a better public speaker.

Do you have to give presentations but feel the butterflies can sometimes get the better of you?

Do you regularly pitch for work and want to learn some simple techniques to help you communicate with confidence?

This course will help.

It provides an enjoyable and supportive environment to explore projection, pace, tone and body language, developing the skills to be an effective presenter.

What will I gain?

By the end of the course you’ll have the confidence to stand up and present in public.
