The College of Public Speaking offers a range of courses to help you become a more confident and proficient speaker.
McKinsey research shows that effective leadership is a critical aspect of organisational health and that leaders must communicate prolifically and enthusiastically. Developing strong leadership attributes in communication is becoming a top priority for all companies with progressive aspirations. (Source: McKinsey’s Organisational Health Index)
Part of it is technique: learning, understanding and applying the often simple concepts and principles that lie behind successful delivery, engaging content and flexible structure.
Part of it comes from each of us individually customising and refining practical tips and professional advice from someone who has already been there themselves and has the knowledge and experience from having delivered thousands of presentations.
And part of it, of course, is simply practice, repetition and developing a level of positive expectation to help overcome our fear of public speaking and those little demons (both internal and external) that continually try to rob us of our self-belief.
Do you need results quickly? Then work with our award winning trainers who are passionate about their subject and most of all, your success. Each has thousands of hours of real world and classroom experience in their fields. You can learn so much by simply observing them in action. And more than that, everything you observe is unpacked from both the theoretical and practical viewpoints. If you're doing the right thing, at the right time most of the time, then you're doing an exceptional job.
Confident public speaking is the expected norm. Composed professional presentations require theoretical planning and delivery excellence. Your needs are met through our public speaking, trainer courses and workshops.
All of our professional classes are accredited by CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. CIMA's parent group Pearson is the world's largest private educational concern. We are also accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Questions to ask when selecting a training supplier:
Are they a specialist company? Are the trainers qualified in the field? How many years professional experience do they have? How many people attend each course? If it's more than 10, be wary. Do they utilise video feedback? Do they send the files on to you for home review? Do they offer more advanced classes? Is the venue appropriate for a professional training? Is the venue a secret until you've paid your fee? Does a low training fee indicate something about the quality of the offering?
