New Lease of Life in my Speaking – James, Director, Property Company

I’ve just completed a fantastic 5-week Virtual Public Speaking with Walter Blackburn at Presenting Success. As an experienced speaker I’ve been speaking for a number of years to property investors about the market but was finding that by speaking about the same thing I needed a new lease of life. I definitely got this from the course.  We learnt how to construct a speech from beginning to end including how to stand and present in the ‘power position’. Walter definitely went above and beyond the call of duty on service, communication and quality. The course was excellent. I thoroughly recommend his services.

Confidence, Insights, Skills and Techniques  – Mabu, Senior IT specialist

As a senior IT specialist in a major bank I am frequently expected to present to my colleagues, so my nervousness in presenting and public speaking was something I’d wanted to improve for a long time. I normally would forget most of the text during a talk due to nervousness. The Virtual Public Speaking Course offered extensive and helpful training by giving me the confidence and the insights and techniques of how to present a talk. Walter showed us how to start and finish a talk with impact, and how to structure it using a Talk Map, and then how to rehearse the delivery. The training offered plenty of support so we were able to prepare ourselves each week for the virtual lesson. I’m now able to stand in front of a virtual group and speak with no fear. I’m sure my new confidence and skill will transfer to my standing in front of a live group. I’ve realised that showing passion and energy, and personalising the message are key for my talks.  It is the most productive course I’ve attended so far. I strongly recommend the course for anyone, who wants to improve their presenting skills.

Speaking with Ease and Confidence – Tom, University student, 1st Year

“At the beginning I tried to keep an open mind, given that I had little presenting experience but I did have doubts to the relevance of the course to me as a university student. However Walter was welcoming and made me feel at ease from the start and we began fairly gently in order to build confidence. I gained valuable knowledge on how to give a talk with ease and confidence using the building blocks and main structure to all presentations which Walter taught us. By the end of the course I understood how the techniques that I learned for presenting would also be relevant in other aspects such as a corporate meeting. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone looking to build a number of skills regarding presenting and also grow in confidence in themselves”.

Ability and Confidence in Speaking – Rosie, University student, 2nd year

“Before embarking on this training course I was very apprehensive and quite nervous. I’m in my second year at Uni and don’t have much experience speaking in public, and I was worried about being the weak link in the group. However with Walter’s support and positive feedback I found my ability and confidence in speaking grow more and more as the weeks went on. It’s a very methodical course with new skills being learnt each week. Not only do I believe this course has helped me from a career point of view, but also on a personal level with how I interact with people around me. I can’t recommend this course highly enough for anyone seeking to improve their ability to talk in public and gain valuable skills to improve their confidence”.

  • Creating and delivering an 5-minute business talk understanding how to structure and then deliver a persuasive talk to a group

How does it work?

The sessions are 2 hours long which gives everyone the chance to choose, prepare and deliver at least one short talk to the group. Each talk is explained and demonstrated by Walter, and then you’re given the time to choose your topic, think about what you want to say, and then practice it before giving it to the group. The topics are chosen so we make sure that everyone has something to say.

You’ll need to have access to a computer with a camera and a microphone as we’ll be using the Zoom online meeting facility which we’ll access. This means you’ll be able to watch and listen to others in the class, and they’ll be able to see and hear you. So that everyone learns from everyone else. Because you are learning what to say and how to say it, and practising with a partner, over the web, you’ll be gaining confidence and understanding about how to create and deliver a good presentation. Every time you speak, and as you get helpful feedback from Walter and other members of the group, you’ll be learning more about your own strengths as a speaker.

There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions, and to watch and listen to others, in order to develop your confidence and understanding of speaking.

This Presenting with Confidence Virtual Online Course is a building process. We start with very short talks and build up to the longer talks, all the time making sure that participants are comfortable with their progress.

Walter has over 40 years of teaching people to present. As a poor speaker when he was a young training officer he knows what it’s like to fail in front of a senior group, so he’s very sympathetic to people who are nervous or unsure.
