Speak to be Heard

Public speaking with power and confidence

Learn how to create personal impact and use your voice to influence others.

On this intensive two-day workshop you learn how to build your confidence, increase your personal impact and manage the inevitable nerves that come from public speaking.

It’s fun, practical and participative. You’ll be learning from working actors and coaches who will help you find your authentic voice and use it to great effect.

I came away feeling clear about what I need to practise and focus on in order to ooze confidence and be comfortable with my voice and presence. It was fascinating, interesting, reflective, inspiring and totally relevant. I would never have imagined you could make so much progress with self-confidence from a two-day course.

Finding our voice in a world full of big personalities and conflicting demands can be a challenge – one which if unmet by us can hold us back from reaching our potential.

We work with the different needs of each participant to ensure you understand what works for you. We provide a toolkit of practices, designed to enhance personal confidence and presence. The programme mixes easy-to-learn technical lessons from the world of performance with a Whole Person approach.

You will work in small groups and on your own, with expert coaching from acclaimed actor and international voice coach, Corinna Powlesland.

Co-facilitator Glyn Fussell blends years of experience in performing arts with developmental work with individuals, groups and organisations.

You will learn to speak and present with a new confidence that will sustain you when your nerves kick in. You will have more impact more of the time – in meetings, in presentations, in pitches, in life.

What I learnt - and how I felt at the end of Speak to be Heard - far surpassed my expectations. I left feeling more confident and at ease with myself and my own voice, and can already feel a positive impact to my work and home life.
