The course is open to speakers of all levels, from those who are inexperienced and in need of reassurance and practice, to students who have experience already and are looking to develop their techniques.

Over the 5 week course students can expect a supportive environment where they will feel free to take risks and increase their confidence. Over the course we will cover subjects including confidence and nerves, voice projection and dynamic breath control, effective body language and whether to speak from notes or read your speech.  Students will be given the opportunity to work at a pace that suits them, but will be encouraged to participate fully on a practical level and support each other to achieve the best results that they possibly can.
