Public Speaking + Confidence Building Professional Development
Welcome, I'm Nicky,
I offer bespoke workshops and programs for organisations and small businesses.
You are in the right place if you're looking to bring Public Speaking and Confidence Building workshops or trainings to your organisation for management, staff & employees.
Or you might be a small business owner with a team or group of colleagues who want to build their Speaking Skills and Confidence for video or in-person meetings, trainings and conferences.
Why public speaking and confidence building is important :
- Improves workplace communication
- Builds credibility and influence
- Helps with conflict resolution
- The team, employees or managers feel more confident to speak up in meetings and input ideas and honest feedback
- Greater confidence in delivering presentations and pitches.
- Improved self-esteem, wellbeing and productivity.
- Greater capacity for listening with empathy and understanding.
- Managing a team more effectively.
- Develop greater story telling skills and deliver speech's that people remember.
Individual workshops or a 4 session program.
The following can be booked as a complete program that could run either as an intensive training or spread out over 4 weeks. The workshops can also be booked individually and we can tailor the content to fit what you'd like to get out of the training.
Workshop 1: How to manage insecurities, uncertainty and nerves when presenting to a group. Including breath work, nervous system regulation, body language and mindset.
Workshop 2: How to think and communicate clearly and concisely, staying on point, crafting what to say using bullet points/key messages. How to speak with confidence using logic and empathy in groups or one to one.
Workshop 3: How to manage the space, build rapport and engage an audience. How to keep their focus using connection, presence, tone and pitch of voice, story and voice projection. How to practice and prepare a presentation so that it stays fresh.
Workshop 4: How to deal with confrontational situations or emotional circumstances. This would include active listening skills, negotiation, managing your own energy and responses and what to do when something doesn’t go to plan! This session will also include sharing & presenting a short 2-5min presentation to the group with feedback, integration and celebration.
One to One Coaching sessions
This is an optional add on that is dependent on availability. 1:1 sessions will help to personalise the work and offer the opportunity to discuss anything related to your voice or confidence that might feel more vulnerable in a group. We can work on inner blocks to being a more confident speaker and/or any presentations, stories or ideas you would like to work on.
You can also book One to One Coaching sessions independently. Please contact me for more details. Thank you.

Words from Kellie after speaking at a conference in front of thousands of people in her industry.
Thank you so much for checking in.
It went really really well. And it felt so good! I managed to contain my nerves and I hardly fumbled over a word.
It was such a milestone for me and I have since done the emcee job at one of our networking events. I still have a lot of work to do but I have some confidence back which goes a long way.
I can’t thank you enough for your mentoring and support, there is no way I would have got up there without you.
