Description

A one-week course in public speaking. Number of students is limited to 10 per class with ample opportunity for individualised training and feedback on practical exercises.

This course is designed by barristers and psychologists with extensive public speaking experience and expertise, and who are passionate about public speaking.

You will be taught by highly skilled experts with extensive public speaking experience in a wide range of contexts, including to specialised and general audiences, in international conferences, public engagement, training and professional development, and politics.

Significant improvement on all aspects of public speaking is expected for those taking the 5-day course. Due to tutors’ experience and expertise in psychology and human development, significant success is also expected in removing fear, nervousness and tailoring long-term self-development for natural presentation.

The unique feature of this course is the combination of:

  • Relevant scientific findings, including insights from psychological science,
  • Advocacy training at the English Bar, and
  • Personalised training and feedback.

In addition to public speakers and presenters, the course is also directly relevant to court advocates – barristers, solicitors and other lawyers representing clients in court – as well as those involved in negotiations and debating. Moreover, skills gained during this course are transferrable to day to day activities.

  • Tactics and techniques of persuasive public speaking
  • Removing fears and anxiety
