Why Speak Confidently

In a world where much of today’s communication is through social media and emojis it is easy to overlook the skills needed to be an effective verbal communicator.

We all want to be able to be a confident speaker, whether for work, study, or in social settings. But for most of us, anxiety and fear inevitably gets in the way, even when talking with people we know.
The good news is you don’t have to overcome this anxiety and fear to become a confident speaker. You can learn how to manage and work with it to your advantage and gain the ability to be a persuasive communicator.
The only way to do this is to learn and then practise. We support you in doing this; to achieve your goal to speak confidently.

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.

Siobhan Tetenburg  –  AA Organisational Capability Manager

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.

Andrew Mackenzie – Deputy Principal Macleans College

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.
