A wonderfully detailed and perfectly pitched session. All of my team who attended commented on how useful, valuable and beneficial the session was and how they are looking forward to putting all of those skills and knowledge into practice.

The folks all enjoyed the 2 days. One or two are very experienced at standing in front of a class, others are novices but clearly they all felt they got great benefit from their time with you. I would be more than happy to recommend your course to others.

The training experience was excellent, Michael adapted the course to suit the specific requirements of our team and was sensitive to our needs. He provided training that was flexible enough to enable us to cover topics that were specific to our area. The course has given the team the confidence to deliver our training. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

My team and I were really impressed with how quickly we could develop our existing speaking skills into a far more polished performance. I could really see the difference in my staff at the end of the training session and we all now have a greater understanding of what makes an effective speaker. With so much interaction and time to practice, we really felt the benefits. I would thoroughly recommend this course from the College of Public Speaking - it should be a basic skill for all employees.'
Detective Chief Inspector
I found the communication skills course really valuable. It not only helped increase the confidence of everyone who participated but also drew out our existing skills. By the end of the day every delegate had improved demonstrably and we all felt really motivated.
Head of Communications
The Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Justice has placed particular emphasis on the importance of good public communication within the ministry and has taken the positive step to ensure that SCS members are encouraged to take up opportunities to develop their ability to address audiences effectively.
From the outset, the approach of The College of Public Speaking to the task of running a series of training sessions has been friendly and efficient.
Before any training took place, one of the directors of the College of Public Speaking, sat down with members of the Leadership and Professionalism team to identify the precise needs of the organisation and to discuss the most suitable structure and content for the proposed training.
From then on the trainers from the College of Public Speaking each demonstrated a very positive and professional manner and the clearly defined focus of the training has meant that, although different sessions were run by 3 separate trainers, the feedback has been universally very positive.

Everyone who attended the session took something useful away with them, and will face public speaking with greater confidence in the future. Thanks Vince

Vince provides practical common sense advice. Anyone listening to him cannot fail to pick up at least one new tip or pointer. I appreciate his â€¨non-prescriptive approach, which rightly recognises but also enhances a speaker's individual style.
Howard Kennedy Solicitors
I found the course very useful. Vince evaluated my initial presentation style and we proceeded with various challenging exercises video recorded and analysed. I have a number of key areas on which to work (preparation, introduction impact, presentation hooks, closing impact, etc). He also looked at our standard sales presentations and again offered some very useful advice.

Working with Vince on a number of presentation projects was great fun. He highlighted what I was doing well and gave me some supportive feedback on areas for improvement. The advice was specifically geared towards the requirements of the venue and the needs of my audience. His experience and insights were invaluable.
The College of Public Speaking provided us with a half day training course on the art of speaking in public. They delivered an informative and practical session that already has helped the attendees build their confidence in this area.

Despite doing numerous presentations at work over the years I've actually never done any formal public speaking training before. I was amazed at how quickly I could identify the areas which needed improvement and see the changes on video after one session. I have remembered the key points from our class and I use them almost daily now. I've found it a real help. I'd thoroughly recommend this training method
The course was beneficial and covered strong advice to achieve the skills of a confident speaker. It identified my strengths as well as areas for improvement. Through use of video it gave me a new realisation of myself and how I can improve. It was a very good course. I'm happy I had the opportunity to take part. Thanks Vince
