Professionally Speaking

Professionally Speaking


Professionally Speaking is an interactive workshop specifically designed to get you out of your comfort zone, in a safe, fun and constructive learning environment that will teach you to remain calm, in control, and appear confident while doing the often uncomfortable work of professional public speaking.

This course offers practical techniques and tools for handling unfamiliar public speaking situations with confidence and aplomb. You will be able to practise speaking into microphones, laptop screens, and cameras as you learn to apply your new public speaking skills to a full range of modern communication situations.

Each participant receives individual assessment and feedback about their public speaking and communication style.

Target Audience

Elected Members who would like to increase their knowledge and confidence when speaking publicly. This course will help participants when representing their Council to media, representing their electorate at Council meetings, or conveying important information, values, and objectives in any public speaking forum: from meetings to radio interviews to video conferences.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of completing this program, you will emerge with the essential skills, knowledge and attitude to handle public speaking opportunities in a calm, prepared and professional way.

We will:
  • teach you vocal warm ups, preparation and delivery techniques to ensure you are calm and confident when speaking publicly;
  • help you to refine your delivery style to ensure you can reach your audience meaningfully, and give you a toolkit to continue to improve how effectively you can communicate.
What makes a good public speaker?
You will find out! AND we will demystify the steps to become one.
