Public Speaking

Leadership Coaching 

Effective communicators are in high demand in business today. Companies want to employ leaders who can communicate effectively, persuade clients and influence staff. There is a shortage of people who can do this. You can fill that gap.

"Some people are just born public speakers."

Anyone can learn this art. There is no such thing as a natural born judo master, chess champion or accountant. These are skills that can be learnt.

 

"Just copy an experienced speaker and you will be successful as well."

Public speaking is not a science, it is an art. If you try to mimic someone else, you won’t come across as authentic and true to yourself.

"I just can’t speak in front of people, why would anyone listen to me?"

You naturally possess some of the key public speaking skills – even if you currently don’t know how to use them. With an understanding of technique and some practice, there is nothing stopping you from becoming a brilliant speaker!

What about the issue of FEAR?

Beyond all proportion, public speaking is quoted as one of the most feared activities in the modern world. At Accents, we assist clients in managing and controlling their fear through a number of powerful strategies.

Fear is addressed from a physiological & psychological angle.
