About this Event

PLEASE NOTE: YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY DAYS FOR CLASSES THAT SUIT YOU 

We’ve created an immersive online, live Public Speaking course, offering people the opportunity to make use of their time at home by learning our unique approach to public speaking, communication and confidence.

While social distancing is leaving people lost for words, the need to improve our communication skills has never been more pressing. 

Have you ever felt that sinking feeling when thinking about a presentation, or find yourself losing sleep over the thought of stumbling through an important meeting. We have. That's why this course explores the fears beneath it all and how to reveal your authentic self. 

By shedding the persona you believe you need, revealing your natural speaking style, you can find new levels of confidence in how you express yourself. 

We encourage vulnerability. It's your biggest strength. By finding a way to show your vulnerability, you can connect with others in a way that is unique and powerful – an essential stepping stone for developing real confidence. 

With our immersive online public speaking course, you can study with us for a limited-time discounted rate. 

This online course takes our best teachings from the classroom into your living room using Zoom video conferencing.

The course includes:

  • Training of 'The Eight Fundamentals of a Confident Public Speaker.'

  • Interactive communication exercises

  • Improvisation storytelling and activities

  • Open discussions about our philosophies towards confidence and human connection

  • Vulnerability exercises

  • Speech preparation and performances with feedback

You will be supplied with reading materials and supporting videos, and regular feedback will allow you to set – and achieve – goals throughout the course.  

"But, what do 'The Eight Fundamentals of a Confident Speaker' teach?"

Good question. They teach breathing techniques, pace control, vocal techniques, body language, content, tone, intention, and emotions.

An overview of the course structure:

1 - Who are you...really?

An introduction to the concept of vulnerability, designed to help you understand you are underneath the surface to learn to speak with transparency. 

2 - Let yourself be heard.

Learn how to project your voice with vocal exercises designed to get you speaking with passion and energy. Also, explore how to transform your anxious energy.

3 - Honest expression.

Look at five fundamental principles to follow that can guide you to express yourself completely. Not just words, but your entire body.

4 - Think less. Feel more.

Discover a series of exercises that teach you how to use emotions as an instrument that can be harnessed for better communication.

To join, you will need:

  • Access to Zoom with a camera (can be a computer, laptop, or tablet.)

  • A consistent WiFi connection.

  • A quiet space somewhere in your flathouse.

  • Space to move around!

The classes run for 2.5 hours, and we limit the attendance to ten people for everyone to get plenty of time to practice speaking and take part in the exercises.

Testimonials from past students

Definitely the best public speaking workshop I have been on! It's much more than just improving your public speaking skills, it takes a deeper look into the subject, in terms of fears, and humanity. Mike's approach and techniques is really about to gain a deep understanding to unlock your authentic self. It was transformative! Highly recommended! - Kristīne Šica

Highly recommended course to help combat fears and anxiety around speaking in groups and in public. Adam Hanim, who ran our course, is a gifted teacher and honestly at times it felt like we were attending group therapy - but in a good way! You can literally see yourself and fellow attendees grow in confidence as you learn to embrace vulnerability instead of trying to fake it - Jonathan Price.

More about our Philosophy

Our mission is more significant than just helping people become better at public speaking – it's to help create a better-connected society.

You'll have heard "fake it till you make it," but this approach only focuses on the appearance of confidence. We have another method. One that isn't about trying to conceal your fear/nervousness/anxiety. We want you to embrace it. 

We believe if there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. Learning how to be vulnerable is at the cornerstone of developing confidence. A lot of the time, we're never allowed to learn what we need to see past misleading marketing promises. The ones that make us want to be excellent straight away. This makes it very challenging for those of us struggling with public speaking anxiety to actually learn what our anxiety is. We forget that we can't get to B without starting with A.

Once we understand it's mechanics, we can work to overcome it. Our society celebrates the smooth, slick, sophisticated, and charismatic. Because of this, we neglect parts of our personality and vulnerability in pursuit of becoming what society deems as confident. All this creates is well-rehearsed robots and insincere people. 

Our approach is directly associated with how willing you are to be 'seen' in your totality. Totality being happiness and also your sadness, discomfort, and anger. By learning to integrate both, you can finally express your inner self.
