Workshops and Coaching in Authentic Public Speaking
WHAT IT IS
The Speaking Adventure offers workshops and 1-1 coaching in confidence, presence and authentic public speaking.
We all have a natural inclination to connect with others, and the more real we are when we do that, the more satisfying it is.
At The Speaking Adventure, public speaking isn’t viewed as a performance, a way of ‘acting’ a professional role, but as an opportunity to be authentic, connect with others, and share something that matters.
We forget about the polish, gloss, and bullet-proof perfectionism, and relax into being natural, responsive, and engaged. It’s a more grounded place to be. And when you can stand on the firm ground of inner confidence, you’ll be clearer and more persuasive, you’ll enjoy yourself more – and you’ll inspire people.
If you have something to say and you want a bit of help to find your voice, feel more comfortable being seen, or connect more authentically with your audiences, join us for an adventure. You may discover a whole new way to speak in public.
