1 Day Public Speaking Courses in Bristol & Cardiff

"Give me just 1 day in Bristol or Cardiff and I`ll give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to turn your public speaking fear around for good... promise!"

- says Richard Johnson, founder director of the College of Public Speaking which has helped over 10,000 people from 50+ countries to manage their fears and speak with confidence since 2006

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 no different to the 10,000+ students, from 50+ countries who we've trained over the last 12 years to:
1) 'Reprogram' the 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.
3) Acknowledge your vulnerability and use it as a tool to create a connection with the audience.

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!
