What is Public Speaking Training?
Plenty of speakers struggle with maintaining their composure on stage, telling a coherent story and effectively engaging with audiences. Public Speaking Training puts participants through a rigorous programme that can span hours or days to inculcate the right habits and approaches to dealing with their public speaking anxieties.
Why Public Speaking Training?
Surveys about our fears consistently show that we fear public speaking more than death. As a result, most speakers fail to perform the moment they step on stage. Considering tone, body language and messaging are suddenly thrust at the back of their minds when faced with a sea of audience members seated before them. These speakers can benefit from training.

Paul reminded me that I am the expert of my content and encouraged me to integrate my personality into the speech. My ultimate goal was to connect with my audience, deliver my message with authenticity and make a difference to them. And I did it!Jenny Ng
