Fear of public speaking is driven by the story we tell ourselves about presenting, the more negative it is the worse the fear. It can be rooted in a negative past experience. It can also be your greatest un-practiced skill. It is a skill and the more you do it the better you will get. The aspect of the public speaking phobia we work on is how you have loaded the meaning into your brain. If you would like to read more,
The top three things you can do to improve your public speaking skills are to get a handle on your presenting mind-set. Find a way to tell a compelling story in your presentation, while keeping your message simple. Finally, find your authentic voice and practice sharing your ideas with a friendly audience. If you would like to improve your skill level, talk to us about coaching you and your team. Change can happen fast.
We help you improve your presentation skills using NLP, coaching and reframing patterns, to show you how you are running your idea of yourself as a speaker. Once you become aware of how you are running the story of you the “nervous speaker”, you can retrain your mind to update your story and start practicing a confident presenter state. We then teach you key steps in structuring and delivering your message in a focussed, engaging way. You get to practice your presentations where you offer you honest, helpful feedback to help you prepare any presentation, no matter what the subject matter. We help you work with your all aspects of your delivery, your voice and body language.
We designed this course based on first-hand experience of being nervous public speakers. We knew that there must be a formula to confident public speaking. We looked to NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and coaching to see what we could bring to a public speaking skills training course. Out of that we built a practical, easy to apply skillset to help people change and become more confident public speakers. This course blends psychology, coaching and language to train you to become a better speaker. This course is presented by experienced public speakers and Toastmasters.
We offer full-day public speaking programmes for groups. We offer half-day private courses for individuals that need intensive public speaking coaching to overcome their nerves and become the confident speaker they want to become. We have trained and coached hundreds of people in public speaking and we have created bespoke courses and offered coaching to suit all of our clients. Talk to us about your training needs and will work with you.
Public Speaking Coaching
I had a wonderful experience with Shiera, working on my motivational speaking, but also getting me to engage in getting my emotions in order towards my talks, which I felt helped me the most. She instantly slowed me how to engage fully with my audience. I’d recommend this company; the atmosphere was very relaxed and everything explained and catered for my needs as a speaker.. Thanks Shiera & Zenith Training and Development.
Public Speaking Client
I recently attended a half day, one- on-one session with Shiera at Zenith Training offices, before a public speaking event. I found her advise and coaching brilliant, it helped me tremendously on the day and her work on my presentation allowed me to convey my message in the way I wanted and that made me feel comfortable. Highly recommend if you're a nervous public speaker.
