About us

The founders of the College of Public Speaking met as members of a voluntary organisation while engaged in separate occupations of sales, IT training, business leadership and marketing. Like magnets, they pulled together through a passion for excellence and a desire to change the world of communication. 

Our trainers are active public speakers, (including award-winning and National Speech champions) and each remains an avid student of the subject as well as a qualified teacher/trainer/instructor. With years of experience across these disciplines (both nationally and internationally), each delivery is well-researched, up to date and full of practical advice and experience. We remain totally dedicated to this fascinating field.

Our courses offer numerous concepts, principles, practical tips, experience and insights - all delivered with encouragement and infectious conviction. The focus is on helping each individual draw out their personality and creativity to explore the possibilities of self-expression. 

If you have any questions around the subject of public speaking or training, feel free to give our award winning trainers a ring, in confidence and with no obligation. You will speak directly to a trainer about your individual requirements.  

A Chinese proverb suggests that the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. If you’re stuck in your thoughts and looking for a new direction, call Vince Stevenson on 07731-876304 or email him on vince@collegeofpublicspeaking.co.uk and find out how your career can open up through improved communication skills.
