Public speaking doesn’t need to be scary!

Presentation skills and public speaking

One hour, lunchtime program.

Have you noticed how nervous people become when they know they’re going to have to speak in front of others? Wouldn’t it be nice to be free of this anxiety? Many of our jobs now require that from time to time we speak to groups of people, whether that’s in a regular weekly meeting with colleagues we know well or giving an important presentation to a set of directors to gain a new contract. No matter how relaxed or formal the situation, people almost always feel stressed. It’s how you deal with that stress that defines your success.

These informal, interactive talks are perfect for your employees to learn a bit more about how to engage an audience, be confident and use their voice, which will help them to feel more positive in presentations or when speaking to large (or small!) groups of people. I will visit you at your place of work, or I can come to your corporate event, and give you and your staff an introduction to a whole range of interesting techniques and skills they can use to improve their potential and succeed where others can fail.

Topics include:

  • How to breathe correctly for relaxation
  • The physiology of stress and its effects on our bodies
  • Useful vocal techniques
  • Command presence
  • How to feel comfortable and in control when speaking

I utilise discussion and small group work to make the talk as entertaining as possible. There is also time at the end for Q&A.

Lunchtime interactive talks, 1 hour, £180.

Presentation skills and public speaking

Half day, 3 hour program.

I also offer slightly longer programs which expand on the topics outlined above and provide a more in-depth and comprehensive look at the skills and expertise needed to succeed. As we have more time, it is useful during these sessions to use role-plays and workshops to really get the participants involved in the process and they can begin to benefit from the techniques they are learning.

Half day interactive sessions, 3 hours, £500.

Do you want to develop your communication skills? Do you wish you could speak in public without fear or panic? Maybe you struggle to be understood at work or feel your voice lets you down?

Building strong communication skills is fundamental in allowing us to progress through many areas of life and I can show you how to do this effectively and authentically. These informal and interesting talks will help you and your employees understand the basics of communication including breathing, posture, physiology of the voice, resonance and articulation. I will visit you at your place of work, or I can come to your corporate event, and give you and your staff an introduction to a whole range of interesting techniques and skills they can use to overcome personal and professional barriers and achieve their full potential.

Topics include:

  • Speaking with confidence and charisma
  • Choosing the right words to make your point

You can also book me to come in for regular monthly, one hour or half-day top-up sessions, so that your staff can pop by for an informal chat and ask me any questions they may have which may have arisen following the initial talk. After all, continual improvement is essential to growth and we all think of things we should have asked after the speaker has left! They can come and discuss any thoughts or concerns they have or talk to me about any up-coming events they may need my assistance with, for instance an interview or presentation they need help developing.

Please contact me using my contact form or email me directly at helen@lincolnssd.co.uk for more information and prices. If you have any specific requirements for your business I will be happy to consider your request.

I request that 24 hours notice be given of any cancellation, otherwise payment is due in full.
