Fear Of Public Speaking Course Overview

"Let Me Transform Your Public Speaking Fear Into New Confidence & Poise - In Just A Few Short Hours In London."

- says "The Fear Doctor" Vince Stevenson, founder-director of the College of Public Speaking London.

Be honest now: are you happy with your current situation? When called upon to speak in public, how do you FEEL?

Scared? Paralysed? Shaky? Dry throat? Racing heartbeat? Profuse sweating?

You're suffering a full-scale panic attack. There are strategies to manage this awful situation.

If so, let me assure you:

You are similar to the 15,000+ students from 50+ countries who I've trained over the last 18 years to:

1) 'Reprogram' the natural fear they feel when asked to speak in public, and
2) Speak with genuine confidence and poise, using simple and immensely powerful techniques.

Question 1: What is critical for you to resolve right now?

Question 2: What will happen if you don't make progress? Are you going to lose out at work again?

Are you open to the possibility that you can change your relationship with public speaking for the better? Then continue reading below.

Course Summary

Fear of Public Speaking Course London UK

Are you experiencing painful or embarrassing difficulties with public speaking?

Have you ever felt that you're getting to the end of your tether and don't want to feel like this anymore?

If your answer is, "That's right," then join me on our public speaking courses in London and say goodbye to anxiety and self-doubt.

Most people answer "That's right," because they're stuck. If you're stuck and you don't know which way to turn, it's normal.

I used to feel that way, too. I wrote my first book about it, The Fear Doctor.

Forty years later, with twenty-five years of classroom training experience, I can quickly and easily explain and demonstrate the mindset and techniques to help you turn the corner. The big obstacles in public speaking are borne of misconceptions, often attempting to achieve impossible outcomes. 

Most of my students have hidden from public speaking - handing their career opportunities to colleagues.

They feel guilty and alienated despite possessing many required personal and professional attributes. That's not the path to success, is it?

The antidote to anxiety is courage. Life is full of challenges and uncertainty - asking somebody on a date or a job interview, for example.

Life does not guarantee success, but to succeed, you must be in it to win it. There's only one way to experience and defeat these challenges, so why not dive in and face them?

Our events are interactive, fun, and confidence-building. They're the foundations of the new, more confident you.

The method is well-established, and it's worked with millions of students worldwide. 

My name is Vince Stevenson (he/him), or 'The Fear Doctor'. Are you motivated to overcome fear and enjoy life as a confident speaker? I have the skills and experience to positively change your life and prospects. I introduced the first 'fear of public speaking course' to London in 2006, and with over 15,000 delighted students, I have never looked back.

Our three pillars of success ensure excellence through equality, diversity, and inclusion - achieving personal impact and securing a sustainable future. 

Question: What causes the fear of public speaking?

Answer: As we develop our lives and careers, we climb the ladders of personal and professional hierarchies. If you're lucky, you might escape the dreaded invitation to speak for a while. But there's no hiding place in the online world. You have to deliver, but are you prepared? This isn't your territory, and the shame of diminishing yourself in front of your peers is paralysing.

Solution: My 1-day and 2-day courses are designed to build confidence and clarity and change your relationship with public speaking forever. Developing a more consistent delivery technique will improve your confidence and future performance.

Public speaking is a skill, and I have developed tried and trusted methods to succeed. If you have a big event on the horizon, now is an excellent time to look for help.

Believe it or not, you might enjoy the process once you set a course for an improved public speaking outcome. As a trainer for more than 25 years, public speaking has been my most incredible tool in a fulfilling life and career. I wouldn't change anything.

So, are you still open to the possibility of improving your relationship with public speaking?

College of Public Speaking Google Reviews

Here's the truth: your fear is nothing more than a bully that dissipates when adequately confronted. It'll leave you free to enjoy the life and success you deserve.

Fear says others will laugh at you, that you're not good enough, that you're not worthy, that your speech will flop.

Fear says you cannot cope; and that you lack preparation. You don't know what you're talking about, and nobody is interested.

Fear tells you your topic is boring, and your points and examples are obvious and barely worth saying.

And as a result, fear holds you back, blocks your path to success, and prevents you from achieving your goals.

Good news - there is a solution - Join me on one of my next fear of public speaking courses in London.

You need the correct strategy, techniques, and guidance to overcome your fears. 

And if you join me for just one day in our first-class training facility in King's Cross, London, I'll show you the winning techniques, including:

  • How to build or rebuild your self-confidence
  • How to focus nervous energy on positive outcomes
  • The key to opening your speech with impact and confidence
  • Breathing techniques that help you remain calm
  • A 6-point checklist to help you speak with confidence
  • Removing your uncertainty
  • Tapping into your personality, creativity, and authenticity

What's the difference between the 1 and 2-day public speaking courses?

On the 2-day public speaking course, you get an extra day's theoretical input, deliver more speech practice, receive expert feedback, and exposure to mindset techniques.

The 1-day public speaking course is intense and high-paced. The 2-day public speaking course is more reflective as we have extra time to explore each individual's situation.

Public speaking course sizes & times:

Our class sizes range from 4 to 10 people, giving everybody sufficient time for numerous short speeches and feedback.

Courses start at 9:30 and end at 5 pm. 45 minutes for lunch. It's a fun and intensive day.

How to find the venue

Our public speaking course runs from Voluntary Action Islington, the voluntary hub of Islington Council, a ten-minute walk from King's Cross station.

Voluntary Action Islington, 200A Pentonville Road, King's Cross, London, N1 9JP. 

Please download the amenities details document with maps and outlines of the local amenities like hotels, restaurants, and places of local interest.

From King's Cross station, turn left and walk down Pentonville Road to Killick Street, and the office is 30 yards past the Tian Tian Market shop on the corner.

There are two doors, Press the buzzer on the right-hand door, and the receptionist will invite you to the 2nd floor. 

Final Consideration:

In 2004, Unilever launched The Dove (soap) 'Real Beauty Campaign'. Their research discovered that only 2% of women worldwide described themselves as 'beautiful'.

The 'fear of public speaking' reflects your inner beauty and perceived competence. I'm no oil painting, but I don't care. That's just a minor facet of who I am.

Within you is a diamond that has shone brightly since birth. As we grow older, we experience life's upsets, disappointments, and failures. The diamond gets covered by life's disappointments, resentment, or defeat. It loses its shine and becomes lost and forgotten. Then you're invited to speak to your colleagues or clients, and you feel less than capable of climbing that emotional mountain. An emptiness swells in the void of your heart, and you feel powerless.

There's often a trigger that makes you need to take action. Without going into details, I know from sixteen years as a fear of public speaker course trainer that your diamond resides within you. We'll establish your diamond's whereabouts during class, take it out, and polish it with your class colleagues.

Planning a prosperous future for you and your family is never too late. You're a call or an email away.

  • 'Hi Vince, I am already lining up some public speaking events one of which might be to seventy people. I am not frightened at all now. Previously I would have died a thousand slow deaths of anxiety and nervousness which could well have resulted in a panic attack on stage. Now I can't wait. I'm proud to announce that I can do it. Who would have thought it from a two day weekend session?'
    Simon Smith - Northolt
  • 'Dear Vince, Today I did my first major public speaking since attending your course a few weeks back. I did an assembly in front of 150 pupils and then staff training at the end of the day. I'm pleased to say that I paused, didn't get nervous and spoke so fluently. All day, I've had kids approach me and thank me for the assembly. One even said he found it "inspirational". 'I can only really thank you for this. I took all of your advice, reviewed the speeches and read your book since the course. I feel so much better now and truly believe that I can do this. Thank you so much and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!'
    Julie Joyce - Oxford
  • 'Hi I arrived with much trepidation following a shocking recent experience at work where my boss shouted at me after a terrible performance. I thoroughly enjoyed the training despite being hesitant at first. Vince made us all very comfortable and his feedback was spot on for us all. Thanks for a great day. My confidence is slowly recovering.
