Executive Speaking Program

Communication skills are highly valued in the internet age. Companies project their professional image through traditional business avenues and all form of social media channels. To be heard, you and your executive style and tenor of communication must stand out from the crowd. You owe it to your colleagues and your followers to raise the bar and compete at the highest level.

Speaking is a leadership role. What you say and how you say it leaves an indelible mark in the minds of those with whom you interact. What is your purpose and what is your message? How do you want your audience to perceive you and your company? How can you change the world in a positive way?

Opportunity: The world of business is forever changing. Nothing stands still. Last year's markets have moved on and this year's markets are challenging. Keeping your eye on the ever-evolving business and technological horizons isn't easy. So when you see that opportunity in the market you have to communicate it effectively. You have to persuade your colleagues or the bank that your idea is a sound proposal. You'll always get more than one big opportunity, but only the best-prepared communicators steal a march on the industry.

Executive Speaking Program

Solution: The Executive Communication Program accelerates you to the next leadership level. Not only will you understand the communication process intimately, you'll also know how, why and when to implement the appropriate tool. Executive speaking is the route one communication channel. When great leaders speak, people listen. 

The Executive Communication Program was created to provide support to the developing leader. Great leaders are not born they develop over time with expert direction. Our tried and tested form of evaluation is based on objective, constructive and supportive feedback. We deliver the highest standards and we expect our student leaders to bring all of their professional skills to class. We recognise our students' skills and achievements to date and build on their remarkable foundation.

Our Executive Speaking Program process is designed to recognise your strengths, uncover your passion and release your potential.

Target Audience

Our program is designed for high-level players in business, politics and communicators in all aspects of personal development.


If you're based in London, the program includes six face-to-face sessions of 3.5 hours. For your convenience, we will come to you. The development sessions are scheduled around your diary every four to six weeks within a six month period. If we are unable to work face-to-face, arrangements can be tailored to work via Skype or via a cloud-based solution.


Our work with you is totally confidential. All work, discussions and strategies are your property and they remain in the classroom.

Working with an expert coach for a long period will build confidence and give you that concrete foundation to exceed your leadership expectations.

How it works

We commence the program with an assessment of your current speaking skills (based on our psycho-linguistic form of objective, constructive and supportive feedback), identify and agree your goals, and discuss recent feedback. By observing a small number of excellent speakers we will agree on a benchmark and then discuss a personal roadmap to achieve that standard. You will be presented with a toolkit of opportunities. We will discuss at length the type of speaker you want to become and how you want the audience to perceive you.

Though the theory is incredibly valuable, you will be required to make a number of speeches throughout the session. Each speech will have a theme and a purpose. The speech will be evaluated to ensure that the goal was achieved. Feedback on the effectiveness of the speech is key to the speaker's development. Speeches are videod and reviewed straight afterwards to allow the developing speaker to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Over a period of a few hours, a working synthesis develops and new goals are set. Excellence is the eventual goal. Trips to the gym are great fun, but it's not the same as a focused session with an expert personal trainer. Your dreams are achievable, though they have to be worked for.
