Speak Confidently Online and Hybrid Courses
Have you always wanted to improve your public speaking skills? Now is an excellent opportunity to do this through our four week online courses using ZOOM video conferencing. Upcoming courses are starting on 27 May and 11 June.
Our courses are interactive, in small groups (maximum eight people) and give everybody the opportunity to give talks to the group and receive supportive feedback on their talks. They also use ZOOM breakout rooms for activities and provide you with the opportunity to meet and network with a motivated community.

What Our Programmes Cover
What our clients say
Gaye worked with our AA High Achievers Programme. The group of 12 needed to present their key learnings from a six month long personal development programme to a panel of our General Managers. Gaye had just one day to not only help the team write and practise their 5 minute long speeches but to teach them the fundamentals of great public speaking for future use. Gaye understood what was at stake for our people and for the success of the programme. She is a master at quickly working out what is important and relevant for the business group she is working with and that adaptability is a very valuable skill.
Gaye and her team at Speak Confidently ran workshops with our Team Leaders. At our recent Awards Ceremony there was a noticeable difference in the speaking skills and speech delivery of all those that had attended the workshops. I would recommend the Speak Confidently team to anyone wanting to develop their speaking confidence and skills whatever their speaking situations and current levels of confidence and experience in public speaking.
Adam Brown-Rigg – YMCA North Youth Programme Manager.
Students found the course very useful and worthwhile. They mentioned their confidence levels improving and they felt much more at ease speaking in front of their peers after the course. Many students were very nervous before the course but they were soon put at ease and involved themselves fully in the exercises. We would recommend the course for any senior students.
In such a short amount of time I already feel a lot more confident writing and presenting. The programme has helped me consider the way an audience views a speaker and made me think about how I project my voice.
In the 6 hours we have spent in this workshop have gained so much confidence in speaking and have learnt a lot of useful tips I have learnt a lot and feel more confident when speaking. I have taken away a lot of tips to help me with writing and delivering my presentations.
