Confident Speaking

Course outline

There often seem to be occasions in the working world where we are called upon to speak in front of a group; sharing information in a meeting, delivering a briefing to a team or group, presenting ideas to the board, introducing ourselves at an event. If this leaves you feeling anxious and shaky, then this workshop is designed for you. Learn how to overcome nerves, ensure you come across to your audience exactly as you intend and pick up tips on how to respond to tricky questions.


On completion of the course, delegates will:

  • feel more confident when speaking in group situations
  • know some methods for overcoming nerves
  • have mastered a strategy for fielding tricky questions
  • understand how to use their voice and body language for best effect
