Public Speaking Courses

Presenting and communicating with confidence

One of the most important skills that a leader can possess is the ability to communicate effectively. Not having the appropriate skills can stop us getting an important message across, and may even impact on our career.

The ability to craft communication and presentations that are compelling has always been a critical skill for leaders to develop.

Whether you need to pitch a persuasive argument, inform or deliver a message from the heart, deliver a workshop or represent your company through a keynote – leaders are expected to do this exceptionally well.


People’s #1 fear is public speaking. #2 is death.

Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking.

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that seem right? That means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.“
- Jerry Seinfeld

Your Leadership Is Demonstrated When Speaking

Leaders know the importance of continually delivering compelling messages to their team and stakeholders. In fact, your ability to present well can either make or break your success as a leader, both now and especially into the future.

Added to this pressure is the fact that your leadership is demonstrated every time you speak. When you are communicating, people will make a judgement about you either consciously or subconsciously, whether you like it or not.

So, let’s set you up for the best chance of success. Learn to become an exceptional public speaker and leadership communicator by designing and delivering messages that stick.

(Tips to keep your calm while presenting)


"The Leadership Speak Program was fantastic. The two days flew by with lots of learnings, tips and tricks to improve not only the significant presentations that I undertake but also to ensure that all meetings and conversations are purposeful for all involved. I left with restored confidence in my abilities as well as a planned approach to my interactions moving forward. Thanks Richard and Proteus."

Nikki Welsh

"I have already recommending this program to my colleagues and team leader. I will be given a time slot to give feedback about this to my team in our next meeting. I found the program covered everything I needed and am excited about being able to use what I learnt to structure and prepare for future times I will be presenting and also I feel I can use a lot of this in meetings and discussions that I have. I can not name one thing that was not useful or needs changing. Thank you :)"

Katie Russell

"The course was great, it was a lot of fun, and not as confronting as I thought because of doing the work in pairs. I learnt a great way to structure the introduction of your presentation and good tips on how to control nerves and how to recover when it all goes wrong! I just need to put it in to practice now! I only had to stand in front of the group and present once and even though I HATE speaking in front of large groups I feel like I may have benefitted from doing it at least once more to get more practice in!"

Kerry Taylor

"Simple tips and a go to template that will help me plan any time I need to present an idea - no matter how large or small the audience. Richard is amazing and his focus on storytelling was really useful. I now realise how to focus on collecting stories and using them to add to my presentations. Thanks team."
