Please note we do NOT hold 'open' group courses - different organisations sending participants. Courses are based on requests from companies to form 'closed' groups for their personnel. This course is also suitable for individuals.

Who should attend

It could be argued that everyone should hone their public speaking skills at some point in their professional life, to prepare for job interviews, meetings, negotiations and networking. However, this course is particularly suitable for any individual who has to regularly present at conferences, address the press, give internal and external speeches, present to the board etc. Although Public Speaking is usually organised on a one to one basis, courses can be given in small groups if the needs are homogenous.
