Is this course a good fit for me?
This course is for anyone who wants to get better at speaking, persuading and presenting. During our hands-on sessions you learn from experience by immediately implementing feedback. We help you to reach your full potential by swiftly putting short blocks of theory into practice until practice makes perfect.
Is this you?
- I feel nervous when I have to present
- I have a clear vision and story in my head, but verbalizing it is hard.
- My presentations are often dull and monotonous
- I find it difficult to immediately react effectively. Hours after a conversation, it suddenly comes to me what i should have said.
- I find it hard to inspire others with my ideas and stories
This course has been succesfully completed by – among others – managers, politicians, lawyers, teachers, marketeers and social workers.
Do I have to speak English flawlessly?
Definitely not! There are no strict requirements with regards to the level of English proficiency. However, most of the trainees for this course speak English (as a second language) in their day-to-day job, so a basic level of business English is desirable. Also good to know: the trainer is not a native Englishman himself.
Will we teach you to speak English flawlessly?
The aim of this course is to improve your persuasive and presentational skills, not to improve your level of English. We will not focus on possible challenges with regards to speaking a different language. We only focus on challenges with regards to speaking in public.
Our motto is: ‘learning by doing’. We don’t want you to endlessly listen to our trainer telling you all about the theory of public speaking. We want you to put it into practice! That is why we want there to be at least two weeks in between each course day. In this meantime, you can practice your new skills.
