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

Since 2006, over 2,000 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.

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 2000+ students, from 50+ countries who we’ve trained over the last 9 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 Ben Harding from Godalming, who said:

'Since attending the course, I feel like a completely different person; more confident, relaxed and easy going. I feel free and it‘s really flowing nowI just gave a speech at work and it felt so good.'

Or Max Dyson, an architect from Dorking, who said:

'This course was an incredibly imaginative and empathetic experience which challenged my entire outlook on communication. My focus was inward not outward. I can see the light now.'

          Or John Eden, an IT Manager from the West Midlands, who told me:

'The anxiety is gone — now that I understand it. Not only can I make a presentation -  I feel I have so much to give now. It‘s quite a transformation.'

Or Tariq Zarroug, who said:

'Thank you Vince for a fantastic course. I've already chaired our editorial meeting at work today (I'm a news editor at the BBC) with a lot of confidence and enthusiasm. I'm on a different trajectory now.'

Meanwhile, Sadie Jones of Wimbledon wrote: 

'I was stuck for so long. The nerve calming techniques really work. The visualisation and grounding exercises made me feel strong and in control. I feel so much more confident already. Thanks for helping me progress. It's the final piece of the jigsaw.'

While Abdulla from Dubai explained: 

'I feel much better about myself and I now have the confidence to step forward in my team and stop being overlooked for promotion. Thank you once again for helping me to evolve into a proficient speaker.'

And engineering graduate Dan Hynes of Edinburgh simply said: 

'Last year I hit rock bottom. I really wasn't going anywhere. This course was the best thing I have ever done.'

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 on 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…
