Learn public speaking skills in Canberra

Really useful for business and personal development

Charmaine, you put me at ease from the outset.   You have really useful knowledge to impart.   

The filming, watching speeches back and constructive feedback from the class was really useful for my business and personal development.   

The speech framework you provided was excellent!

Jedi Speech Skills – I Nailed it!

Greetings from Addis Ababa!  I’m just writing to say thank you for imparting your skills so well. 

I was at a conference this week and had to be first speaker of a debate were 98% of the 200 member audience didn’t agree with me, but I found the angels, prepared well and followed your guidance.   I nailed it!   

It was a tough topic but the Jedi speech skills I learnt with you, held me in good steed.

Shaking off my inhibitions

The course gave me the opportunity to practice speaking, get feedback and work the improvement into my speech.

All techniques were extremely useful

The trainer was great!       

I found the strategic methods of the A.TT.I.C.S. opening technique, various speech structures and the S.Q.A.C. closing techniques, all extremely useful.   

This was by far one of the most interestingly run technical training course, I have ever attended.

GREAT experience, great environment and a well worth the investment.
