What if you felt confident enough to say "yes" to every speaking opportunity that came your way?

Well, there's no reason why you can't be. The only thing standing between you and confident public speaking skills is practice, practice and (guess what) more practice! Did you know that communication skills training can help you:

  • advance your career by positioning yourself as a leader in your organization;

  • reduce feelings of nerves and anxiety before meetings and presentations;

  • project confidence and credibility when speaking with important clients or executive management;

  • influence colleagues by promoting your ideas clearly and confidently;

If you're an emerging leader who wants to advance your career and overcome feelings of nervousness then you're in the right place. 


"Speak for Success was a great experience for my team. The workshop gave them tools and techniques to improve their public speaking skills so they were better prepared for online meetings and presentations. They had time to implement the training and practice in a safe setting, while having fun. Highly worthwhile."

 Bridgitte Anderson, President and CEO, the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade

Why train with us

We practice the skills that matter most. Many of us will never deliver a TEDx talk but nearly all of us will have to deliver a presentation at work, answer impromptu questions from our manager, and formally introduce ourselves to new clients. That's why we practice the day-to-day communication skills that matter most.

We have small class sizes. While most other programs have anywhere between 20 - 35 people per class, we cap all of our classes at 10 people to ensure everyone has multiple opportunities to practice speaking as well as giving and receiving feedback.

We maximize your practice time. Unlike other programs that spend the majority of class time on lecture and theory, at Speak for Success nearly 100% of class time is devoted to practice. Practice is what confidence is made of, so it's critical that you get plenty of opportunities to take center-stage. 

We provide a fun, safe and engaging environment for young professionals. Public speaking programs have a reputation for being stuffy, boring, and intimidating. Our goal is to cater the Speak for Success experience to young professionals, ensuring that their learning experience is fun, safe, and engaging.

We focus on strategies that reduce feelings of nervousness and anxiety. We've partnered with Registered Psychologist and VP of Anxiety Canada, Dr. Melanie Badali to develop online resources that use proven, science-based methodologies that will build your confidence and reduce feelings of nervousness and anxiety. That way, you can feel confident saying "yes" to any speaking opportunity that comes your way.
