Speak to Lead

This intensive 4.5-day training package will include one-to-one and group coaching, powerful tools and distinctions, live practice, role-play/acting and video feedback.

You will build on your existing public speaking and presentation skills to unlock your authentic leadership voice in business. You will receive tailored coaching and support to enable you to speak to lead in the contexts we have identified you wish to elevate your performance in. These could be:

  • Leading client presentations and selling to leads and prospects
  • Influencing board directors and senior leaders
  • Getting you message across powerfully in semi-formal contexts such as team meetings, interviews, panel discussions, Q+A sessions
  • Communicating and leading a strategy and plan
  • Consulting and engaging challenging stakeholders
  • Speaking to the media

Non-native English speakers may struggle to find the right words in business contexts. They may find that their ability to express themselves confidently in English is holding them back.

You will benefit from targeted coaching with Business English expert Lesley Hossner in the first two days of this training course. She will pinpoint where you can make small but significant improvements to your performance, which will ensure that your audience can understand your message, and your confidence will soar. She has specialised in helping people develop their language skills and confidence for many years and spent the last 10 years working around the globe.

Voice Yoga Expert Brigitte Deneck will help you ground and expand your breath and voice for optimal expression and for connecting to your authentic self. Brigitte is a voice yoga expert and qualified Pneumaphonie® practitioner.

In Days 3 and 4 you will gain mastery of the mechanics of public speaking, (body language, ‘style’, voice projection and speech craft and messaging), while putting into practice powerful tools and distinctions to inspire and lead with charisma and authenticity. Our approach draws on the methodologies of ontology (exploring and creating powerful ways of being), mindfulness (being present in the here and now), voice yoga, and role-play and practice with video feedback and guidance from our expert coaches.
