Public Speaking in Oxford

People who enjoy social functions and do well at work know how to speak with confidence and listen effectively. They enjoy engaging with others and don't mind being the centre of attention.

Many people feel apprehension if they have to speak in public. Some completely dread it and will make any excuse to avoid an occasion where they are the speaker. I have been training people in public speaking and presentation skills for 30 years and I know that fear can make you believe that you will die if you do it. I can promise you that is not going to happen! So far, I have trained more than 3000 people, many of whom dreaded it at one time and are now enjoying the benefit of being more confident.

Taking the fear and percieved complexity out of public speaking is what I do best. I know many techniques that will help you and give you confidence in your own ability to stand up and speak well. If you would like to change, enrol on one of my courses, or book a one-to-one session and learn what to do and what not to do when you are presenting.

Here are some of the things I can help you with:

  • having your presentation skills and public speaking ability assessed
  • learning ways to overcome fear
  • using body language and gesture well
  • giving a good best man or wedding speech
  • preparing a speech
  • delivering a speech so that others listen
  • being persuasive, informative, inspiring or funny
  • developing your voice
  • preparing for an interview or a press conference
  • using visuals effectively
  • being the centre of attention
  • assertiveness

I am also happy to provide more information or to answer questions to do with communication problems by e-mail

Training courses are provided by me in public speaking with confidence, presentation skills, voice skills, making a good impression, assertiveness, wedding speeches, confidence coaching and coping with change. Further details about these training courses are available by contacting me. Courses can be tailored to suit the needs of the client.
