The secrets to brilliant speaking

Where do you want to shine? How would it feel to be in your power in social situations? How does a confident you come across?

This workshop gets to the heart of your confidence so you can love walking into a room full of new people, be at ease and your natural self when telling people about what you do and in any situation where you want to be comfortable speaking to and in front of others.

Confident Speakers

Choose to do this workshop to give yourself a boost.

The Confident Speakers Workshops are based on 3 main ideas


Getting a conversation going, really listening and how you choose to use your words, your voice and body, are all skills.

Of course, we all know how to speak and no-one wants to be false or mechanical with any of that.

But what if you could study what great communicators do and adapt that to your daily life. Imagine the difference it could make.

These are are the skills you will learn at our workshops.

Setting the bar at a high standard

From the first minute you decide to work on your commuication skills you have raised the bar on your expectations on how you will communicate with others.

That means putting yourself in the shoes of the listener and adapting to their perspective. It’s an act of kindness really. You’ll be amazed at how good this makes you feel!

And when you feel good you become more confident. As your skill and standards rise so does your confidence. You’ll see the results in all the quality conversations you start to have with the most unexpected of people.


Focusing on your strengths makes things easier to do, brings you more success and makes life altogether more enjoyable.

You’ll be helped to find your strengths during our workshops and given practical advice on where you are using them to greatest effect.

There are hundreds of techniques that you can use to communicate. The trick is to find the handful that work really well for you!

The Thinking Behind What We Do

The programme is underpinned by researched methodologies that increase personal self-confidence whilst developing the skills that all great communicators use to achieve connection, influence and impact.

The live communication training is specifically designed to be invigorating and intense for participants and you will find yourself fully engaged throughout the workshop.

Our trainers are professionals in their fields. This is not theorising, it is practical, hands-on training delivered by people who use these skills in their everyday professional lives. On the programme you can expect to have expertise shared by a linguist, a voice-over artist, presenter, actor, sports commentator, digital recording expert and a world-class keynote speaker. 

The pedagogy is based on proven learning techniques that take participants through a powerful cycle of input, experimentation and feedback. Learning works best for us all when it is delivered in chunks with carefully timed intervals between sessions. The Confident Business Programme is delivered this way online and in-person.

Add to this the personal strength assessments and positive team building environment and you can see why this programme is so highly rated by those who have done it.
