Course description

Public Speaking - open, bespoke and in-house courses or personal business coaching

City Academy's theatre-based Public Speaking  workshop, offered in a variety of different forms, is designed to give you the must-have skills and confidence to master public speaking and, consequently, enhance your career prospects. By incorporating age-old techniques of the performance arts, City Academy's actor-instructors will deliver a training experience that is engaging, hands-on and focused on the performance element of speaking in front of a crowd.

It's no secret that the prospect of speaking in public terrifies many people. But, in the modern professional world, you just can't afford to let a little stage fright stand in the way of your ability to address an audience effectively. City Academy addresses this burgeoning necessity with a workshop that is based on the solid conviction that, as City's experienced trainer-performers know only too well, public speaking is at least as much about performance as it is about preparation.

You will get insight into the tricks of the trade relating to body language, stage fright and engaging an audience as well as the opportunity to practice your skills, working out all the kinks. Not to be forgotten, all activities are built with stage presence in mind - working to help you build that elusive bit of star quality needed to become influential and inspiring in front of an audience.
