Invest in yourself.
Taking the time to strengthen your communication skills is about investing in yourself. What is a well-delivered presentation, meeting, call or pitch worth you ask? Well, it could make the difference between:
getting hired or not getting a call back
being promoted or being passed over
receiving a raise or being told "there's no budget"
being assigned as a project lead or continuing to be an individual contributor
signing a new client or being told "no"
being identified as a "rising star" by executive management or not being noticed at all
There's a reason why billionaire Warren Buffet and former PepsiCo CEO & Chair(wo)man Indra Nooyi said public speaking was one of the best investments they have ever made. Because the thing about public speaking, is that no matter what line of work you're in, you're going to have to do it eventually, especially as you advance through your career.
But if you're like most people (around 75% of the population) public speaking can be a very stressful experience that can cause you to:
suddenly go "blank"
lose your train of thought mid-sentence
have debilitating anxiety
turn down career opportunities due to nerves
look visibly uncomfortable in of your colleagues and peers
miss a promotion or hire due lack of "leadership presence"
The good news? There's a solution: the Speak for Success Program©.
Delivered over six-live practice sessions and supported by nine-modules of online learning content, over the course of the program you’ll practice delivering speeches, impromptu speaking, managing the Q&A, body language, introducing yourself, using credible vocabulary and providing feedback - all with the guidance and support of our Lead Facilitator.
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.
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, we've designed the Speak for Success Program© so that 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 centre-stage.
We provide a fun, safe and supportive environment. Public speaking can be scary and intimidating. That’s why we ensure that every practice session provides you with a fun, safe and supportive environment for you to practice and grow. Plus, we love keeping it casual and having a lot of fun along the way!
We focus on strategies that reduce feelings of nervousness and anxiety. We've partnered with Registered Psychologist, Dr. Melanie Badali to develop curriculum that uses proven, science-based methodologies that will build your confidence and reduce feelings of nervousness and anxiety so you can say "yes" to any speaking opportunity that comes your way.
