Developing Skills in Public Speaking
Presenting to a room full of people is more than just talking, it’s a performance. Public speaking and presenting is an essential requirement for all aspects of business life and life in general. A great presentation can help you clinch a sale or a new job, captivate an audience or teach your own skills to others.
Communication is the new currency and fortunes can be won or lost on the back of how we present ourselves and yet unlike some cash-rich people who were born into money, it’s a myth to believe there are ‘born speakers’.
'Developing skills in public speaking' will demonstrate the techniques needed to impress and influence an audience of any size and show you how to polish the skills you already have.

According to a recent survey, 56% of British people stated that speaking in public was one of their biggest fears (placing it higher than death itself!). This fear comes at great cost for an individual’s career, as having the skills to deliver a great presentation has an extremely positive effect on a person’s standing within a company. Luckily, a fear of public speaking can be overcome through training.
Throughout history, the most powerful people have always been fantastic public speakers who are able to gain the trust of people through their oratory talents. Towers of history such as Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King are best remembered for their speeches as well as their actions, proving that presentation skills are the defining factor in leadership.
