Speaking Skills Workshop

Speaking Skills Workshop

In the workshop we support you to find your own voice.  This gives you the confidence to realise who you are and who you want to be.  The voice is the key to this success.

You may be anxious about attending a speaking skills workshop.  We help you turn this anxiety into excitement. The supportive environment of the iSpeak workshop provides empowering skills that you will have for life.

Speaking skills are just that, skills and skills can be learnt.  The workshop is very interactive.  You will develop your ability to write an engaging speech using storytelling to illustrate your ideas.  You will practice adding impact to your speaking through the use of body language and vocal variety.

We spend time on how to prepare and deliver a speech.  You will also have fun with some impromptu speaking.  You can develop leadership skills through giving feedback to each other.

You may not want to speak at the start of the workshop.  However, by the end you will not want to stop!
