Event Details

Even the best content needs to be delivered in a powerful way to get your audience to listen and buy into you and your business!

Join PONY Express for Speak to Grow your Business – an intensive 2 days of public speaking training led by our expert speakers and coaches. 

You’ll learn a structure, techniques, tips and tricks you need to master the art of speaking, and dive into tasks and challenges to help you explore your limits and grow as a speaker.

However, if you’re feeling incredibly nervous we recommend attending ‘Falling in Love with Public Speaking’ first. Next one runs on the 14th October 2016. 


Speak to Grow your Business brings together a variety of grounding techniques, improv exercises, storytelling and more. We use experiential techniques to ease you into transformation and create the confidence you need to speak from stage.

Session 1: Content Creation & Structure 

The most precious commodity in the world is the ability to create strong and engaging content.

Learn how to:

• Utilise our 7-Step Content Creation Tool
• Position yourself as an expert
• Make everyone feel part of your talk/presentation
• Use different delivery techniques to add impact

Session 2: Overcoming Judgement

Ever wish you always knew what to say and could think on your feet? Or what to do when you go blank? Or how to handle it when a situation goes wrong? The skill of Improvisation is fun to learn, fast-moving and immediately workable in any communication area in your life.

Learn how to:

• Stay in control at all times
• Keep your train of thought, even in challenging situations
• Think outside the box 
• Embrace ad-hoc speaking opportunities with confidence and certainty

Session 3: Storytelling 

Remember the enchanting storytelling experience Steve Jobs created from stage? Those who tell stories rule the world.

Learn how to:

• Take your audience on a powerful journey 
• Evoke their imagination and emotions, and capture their interest 
• Design and utilise your very own personal story 

We’ll also teach you the PONY Express Impact Principles: Eight proven ways to communicate like a pro in every public speaking situation.

Your trainers:

Elliot Kay has accumulated over 6,000 hours on stage in front of audiences across the world and trained many businesses to pitch for investment. Working across both corporate and experiential training, Elliot has delivered training programmes for the likes of Sky Television, Talk Talk, NHS and Hewlett Packard. He also facilitates his very own ground breaking seminar on Business Growth Strategy to hundreds of people every year.

Annik Rau has over 30 years of experience being scared of speaking and declining speaking opportunities due to the fear of looking silly in front of peers. This all came to an end in 2011, when she decided wasted enough time worrying about what others might think and PONY Express Speaker Training was born. She has trained with international speaker trainers like Clinton Swaine and Joanna Martin. She is also trained in clowning (!), the Meisner Technique and experiential workshop facilitation. Annik has delivered training to hundreds of enterpreneurs, corporate businesses and Tech start-ups pitching for investment. 


'If you have a BUSINESS it's a must for you to be able to speak from stage. You will develop material that you can use for your speaking engagements and experience what it is like to embody being an incredible speaker. As a result of that I progressed with my speaking in a short amount of time.' Marina M., Effortless Living

'The euphoria you feel after speaking is directly proportionate to the fear you felt before.’ Colin Firth, Actor

'Brilliantly executed with passion, love and professionalism. I left feeling empowered, inspired and loved. When I arrived I thought I was a good speaker as I have delivered a lot of small speeches and workshops, by the end of the day I self-actualised I am not. I felt safe in the environment they created, I dropped my inner critic and opened myself up to being more daring, vulnerable and to learn, grow and improve with everyone else who was there.' Tony S.Author, Speaker, Human Behaviour & Cognitive Specialist

'I teach people to use their voice more effectively and have been to other speaker training communities in London that don't match what Annik offers at PONY Express. My recommendation will always go to PONY Express as the place to train because of the opportunities, the community and the professional feedback to the speakers.' Emma C., Voice Coach & Impact Consultant

We’re looking forward working with you!

PONY Express Speaker Training is for anyone who uses public speaking as part of their business growth strategy.

We run a monthly Club Night, a Beginners Day, a Two-day Training, a 90 Day Speaking Gigs Intensive programme and a 6-month Speaking Accelerator.

The company was founded 2011 and named after the famous Pony Express mail delivery service in 1860s America, in which young riders risked their lives deliver a message. Our PONY Express is very similar. People face their fears and take a risk to step into the spotlight and deliver their message to the world. NO PONIES ARE HARMED IN THE PROCESS!

PONY Express Speakers

PONY Express Speaker Training is for aspiring entrepreneurs and anyone wanting to further their success through the medium of speaking.  

We teach in an interactive & experiential way. Experiential learning is a high-impact educational training practice. It’s a learner-centered approach that gets you off your chair, out of your comfort zone, actively involved and responsible for your progress in a safe environment. This training format guarantees an immediate and noticeable difference in your communication approach.

The philosophy behind PONY Express is the concept of risking something. The 1860s American PONY Express was a mail delivery service where young PONY riders like Buffalo Bill risk their lives delivering a message. Same today. It might feel daunting to present in the board room, pitch to a panel of serious investors or a room full of industry peers – will you be impactful enough to present your ideas? With the right training, nothing has to be left to chance.
