Split-Day Training Includes:

We discuss your objectives for your training, establish a plan, create a schedule and organise the preparation to be done before our first session and create unique course material for you.

If you already have a speech/presentation, we ask that you send it to us so that we establish a deeper understanding of the content before the first session. This also includes analysis and improvement suggestions of any related PowerPoint slides.

First Session is devoted to analysing your main areas of concern, analysing your strengths and weaknesses, improving skills through training and hands-on practical experience, video feedback and coaching. 

We work on developing rich, effective, engaging content:

  • Establishing clear objectives to achieve results
  • Analysing your audience and addressing their needs
  • Creating a powerful opening and a strong closing
  • Structuring and framing the delivery of your message
  • Creating a memorable core message
  • Improving PowerPoints (if included)

Review Break in between sessions allows you time to review, rehearse and refine your skills. This can be a break of one day or one/two weeks. During this time we also help you to re-write your speeches; fine-tune your language and provide rehearsal techniques to improve your performance.

In the Second Session you will sharpen and refine your speech, focus on delivery and performance skills.  

We take videos of your performance for review and feedback to improve.

Then finally, establish the best way for you to continue present your speech, and/or make a plan to help you to continue to evolve.

Personal Tuition Feedback

Personal Tuition with public speaking and book promotion

Getting in front of a camera and speaking for the first time was very challenging, then I found it fantastic! 

My personal speech coach was supportive, empathetic and made the training fun.

I learnt how to communicate to various audiences and successfully promote my book and my message. EXCELLENT!

Kate Marie, Public Speaker & Author
Business Presentation Tuition

I was extrememly happy with the results of my personal training. I used the stage as suggested; Anchored negative and positive stories; Fed off the attention of the audience to boost my confidence.

The CEO of my company congratulated me on my speech, saying it was like a professional TED talk!

Wedding Speech Assistance - Public Speaking Training

I have had many complements since the wedding on my speech.   I was not nervous or anxious about the speech so I was able to fully enjoy the entire day.

I owe this entirely to you and your course, which gave me the tools as well as the confidence in my speech writing ability and absurdness in my delivery to make the day absolutely perfect.

I cannot thank you enough for your assistance.

Rob Hart, Wedding Speech Coaching & Training

Your training was extremely beneficial and relevant to enable me to create and deliver an amazing speech in China. 

Learning to use powerful language, standing with confidence, the opening and closing technique was brilliant.

I expressed myself as an expert and a leader.

L_Bassett - Public Speaking Personal Tuition in Sydney

I have received excellent praise about my presentation as a guest speaker at the Forum for Mental Health in Sydney as a result of my public speaking tuition with you.

The coordinators congratulated me on my presentation saying that it was of a very high calibre, gave a great insight to mental health, received fantastic comments from the audience, and was certainly a highlight of the forum because it was so very well received.

I highly recommend working with Charmaine from Art of Communicating.   The 1 on 1 coaching was fantastic.

Having presented for over 10 years it was extremely beneficial to get some key professional tips/tricks to be able to improve my presentation and sales techniques and take them to the next level.

Public Speaking Training with C Burke - E Richardson

Art of Communicating boosted me to a new level. No matter how experienced I thought I was as a communicator, Charmaine and her associates taught me so much more – effortlessly & effectively.

I was astounded how quickly I changed. There is no substitute for the professionalism, quality and respect they offer to their clients.

E Richardson, Director - Thanks 4 Pty Ltd.

I delivered my speech to accept an Order of Civil Merit of Spain at Parliament House to most distinguished dignitaries, the Ambassador to Spain, Consul General of Spain, and many NSW Parliamentarians.

It was thanks to you and the way you helped me to write my speech, that gave me the personal confidence to deliver it.

Many in the room came up to me and said “What a Speech!”    I have to say there were not many dry eyes in the room when I was finished. The applause went on and on. Even the Consul’s wife came up to me and said how amazed she was I could deliver my speech through tears.

I felt I did justice to our Spanish Association and it is thanks to you.
