Speaking in public can be a nerve-wracking experience. Faced with an audience, it’s all too easy to succumb to the collywobbles and let nervous tension show in your voice and posture, even if you already have some experience in speaking publicly.

This course will help you hone your speaking style, and give you specific vocal and physical tools and techniques to enable you to speak clearly and confidently in public.

Kathleen is an experienced acting and voice coach, and has worked extensively in the theatre and in the corporate world. She is the perfect person to help you perform in public. She promises plenty of laughter and says participants can expect to leave the course relaxed and reinvigorated.
