Course Content

Course Benefits

This half-day course will provide you with practical strategies to overcome the fear of public speaking.

At some point in our lives and careers we will be required to speak to groups. Whether at a wedding, team meeting or as a key note speaker, many of us find even the idea of speaking in public simply terrifying.

Learning ways to overcome our fears can transform both lives and careers.
