This one day Speaking UP! Workshop is for anyone who wants to improve their communication skills, powerfully engage their audience and be confident they really are getting their message across.

"Communication - the human connection - is the key to personal and career success."
Paul J. Myer




"I know that you believe you understand what you think I said,
but I am not sure you realise that what you heard is not what I meant."
Robert McCloskey


Effective communication skills can open doors,
but poor communication skills can close them.


Whether we are in a team meeting, or presenting in front of an audience,
we all get called upon every now and then to speak publicly.

Now you can do it well or do it badly - the choice is yours.


"Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise,
you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity and the emotions to affect other people"
Jim Rohn


Empowering yourself as a stronger and more effective communicator means
you become a more confident and influential person.

Breakthrough the limits that have held you back in the past.
