The ability to speak clearly and confidently is valuable skill for everyday life as well as for the workplace. However, while most people can probably speak coherently when given several days or weeks to prepare, a call to speak with little or no notice can induce a mind-numbing anxiety that results in a faltering, incoherent and unconvincing speech. Impromptu speaking training can drive your career forward, revealing you as a leader and team player who can clearly and confidently get a point across or help you make a welcome contribution to important family or social occasions.

This half-day workshop will equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to gather and articulate their thoughts, think on their feet and speak with confidence and competence.
