Speakers Corner

Course participants give their final speeches at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park

Learn the foundations of a new approach to public speaking based on mindfulness (being present in the here and now), ontology (creating new and empowering ways of being in communication and public speaking) and acting and role play to build confidence.

The course consists of:

  • Weekly group-coaching workshops with homework in between sessions to give you tools and training to prepare and deliver speeches/presentations
  • One-to-one and group coaching to help you overcome your fears and develop your voice and passion for speaking
  • Lots of practice, as well as acting games to build confidence and develop self-expression in front of an audience
  • A weekly group conference call to keep you on track
  • Peer support and social evenings; working as a group to achieve your goal
  • Access to support from your coach at anytime
  • A special event at Speakers Corner where you will prepare for and deliver your final speech.

Feedback:

I have been terrified of public speaking for as long as I can remember but I really felt like it was holding me back. I decided to take the leap and do the course in a hope to finally get somewhere with the fear of an upcoming change of career on the horizon. Chris was so great, calm and knowledgeable. It was so nice knowing he too had once been in the same position and with a little courage and practice you can become an effective speaker - It really helps to know that someone who has been in the same position and has come out the other side! He has put together a unique coaching package that really does help, especially with formal presentations - my greatest fear - and the final session at speakers corner does finally cement all the hard work. I would happily recommend the course and I found it an effective tool to help me manage my speaking fears. - Holly

I work as a coach but I knew deep down that I still had a fear of public speaking particularly in groups. So I decided to enrol on the Speak with Passion course to help me overcome my fear of public speaking. It was a brilliant experience and Chris really helped guide us all step by step carefully and attentively working through our own individual obstacles as the each week brought a new challenge. I now have the tools in place for writing any speech and I also have a new found confidence around public speaking which was always there before but the course helped me bring it out. I can now enjoy public speaking with a smile! – Justin

“The practical sessions and homework are very useful. I will definitely recommend doing the speakers corner session! Chris’ story has inspired me. The sessions helped me identify areas for improvement that I had not considered before now. Also working with the others as a group was inspiring." - Ade

“Freedom Works changed my life! I searched the internet for public speaking courses after an unsuccessful interview and many years of underachievement, as I realised I needed professional guidance on improving my level of confidence and delivering speeches to large audiences. The theory & practical application of the course enabled me to implement new strategies immediately at work and when socialising with my friends. Working with a group of six over the course, Chris explained how to change our inner dialogue in order to be confident on a daily basis. Chris is an exceptional coach who exudes positivity and ensures the course is tailored to meet individual needs. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to change their outlook on life, gain confidence & learn how to speak with confidence.” - Jay

*****

“I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was well organised and very informative, the size of the group was good because the trainer had chance to help everyone within the group. I believe this course was useful to me, especially tackling bad habits and nerves while public speaking. Furthermore, I found the course very interesting and held my attention throughout the whole duration. Chris Hayes was welcoming and it was easy to relate to him as he suffered with the same anxiety and nerves too! I would definitely recommend this course to others.” - Sunny

*****

“I just I want to say thank you for encouraging me to deliver my speech at Hyde Park Corner. Without you I would never have done it! The way you combined coaching, practices to improve public speaking, and help on how to develop a good speech has been really powerful. Thank you for this amazing 10 weeks, because I now I feel that I really am ready to do whatever I want! highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to become more confident in public speaking and in other areas of their life, because this is about so much more than just public speaking. Thanks Chris for this wonderful opportunity! “ - Luz

Amazing experience and a rich course. A lot to learn and a lot was applied. The most beneficial part is the continuous support from the tutor. In addition getting the chances to make changes weekly and seeing ourselves move forward. Very grateful and appreciative for completing the course and breaking the ice at Hyde Park Speakers Corner. Thank you. - Sarah

Chris is Director and Coach at Freedom Works UK with extensive experience of public speaking and training people to go beyond their fears and accomplish the things that are most important to them. Chris is a former president of Riverside Communicators, a Toastmasters Club in Twickenham. “I used to be incredibly shy and would avoid public speaking at all costs. The most important lesson I have learnt is to lose yourself in your audience. Put your focus on what you want your audience to find out about, think or feel, or act on. Make a difference over there instead of worrying what people think."
