Fear of Public Speaking Courses in Bristol and Cardiff To Increase Confidence & Poise - In Just A Few Short Hours


Since 2006, over 10,000 people from 50+ countries - both private individuals and professionals sent by organisations including the UK Government, HSBC, BT, Oxfam and Buckingham Palace...

...have already learnt to manage their fears and speak with confidence using our simple, proven methodology.

We help anxious speakers manage their nerves, overcome their negative emotions and deliver credible speeches. 

Our professional clientele steps forward in their careers through our ground-breaking and confidence building, techniques and activities. 

It' s a process that has helped thousands of students over the years.

If you're vulnerable, it's ok. If you're nervous, it's ok. If you're at your wit's end, it's ok. We work with you and respect your efforts. 

Here are 3 questions to ask yourself:

  1. Is this really a threat?
  2. Have I prepared thoroughly?
  3. Is my mind accelerating to a catastrophic outcome?

If you're looking to break this negative cycle, then come and join us for a day.

Believe in our process and we'll help you get the effective and consistent results you deserve. We just ask you to give it 100%.

Bring a smile, a sense of humour and an open heart and mind. Choose to be defined by your courage, not your fear.


Join a supportive group of like-minded peers for just one day at our next event in Bristol or Cardiff and I guarantee you will too.

Be honest now: when called upon to speak in public, how do you FEEL?

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

Maybe even dizzy, short of breath... or thrown into a full-scale panic attack?

If so, let me assure you: 

You are similar to the 10000+ students, from 50+ countries who we've trained over the last 11 years to:
1) 'Reprogram' the natural fear they feel when asked to speak in public, and 
2) Speak from a position of genuine, easy confidence and poise, using simple and immensely powerful techniques.

We want to help you escape from the prison of your mind so that you can enjoy the benefits of speaking fluency, including better understanding, communication and advanced experiences for pleasure, business and personal development. 

People like Niraj from Gloucester, who said:

"I was very impressed with the way you conducted the seminar. It was an eye opener and I learnt many new things and I look forward to my next presentation."

Or Ivan, a logistics manager from Caerleon, who said:

"Just wanted to let you know that I spoke at my wife's memorial service yesterday in front of roughly 100 people. It was one of the most emotional days of my life and I could feel my heart thumping as I waited - due to nerves and the emotion…but the breathing exercises worked! And once I was on the stage I did a really good speech."

Or John, a mechanical technician from Bristol, who told me:

"I really enjoyed the course, you helped me feel so much better about public speaking.'"

Or Amy, who said:

"I never would have believed that I could have enjoyed giving a presentation, but I've just given one, it went really well and I loved it. Thank you so much!"

What could your confidence, your career, your life look like in the next 12 months if you simply joined us for a day in Bristol?

What is the price of staying where you are?

Is the status quo stifling you?

Here's the truth: your fear is nothing more than a bully that will melt away when properly confronted, leaving 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 enough; that your speeches will flop and that you are a flop.

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

Fear tells you that your topic is boring and your points and examples are obvious and not worth saying.

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

Good news - there is a solution! Join us for our next 'Fear of Public Speaking' course...

Fear is a bully and like most bullies, when properly confronted, its threat diminishes - leaving you free to enjoy the success you deserve.

You just need the correct strategies and techniques to overcome it...
