Our team really appreciated Mark’s relaxed and friendly style during the workshop, we learned a lot and the practical exercises meant we could put it into practice right away. Even the most reluctant public speakers in the team were happy to have a go in the safe environment Mark created. We were delighted with the workshop Malmesbury Speakers Academy ran for us, and I am sure our clients will be equally delighted when they attend one of their courses hosted at our venues across the country.

Speak with Clarity

Clarity: the ability to clearly communicate your message so that your audience understands and receives it.

You speak because you have a message to share - and your message will not be received and understood unless you can communicate it clearly.

Our Speak with Clarity training includes:

Mastering your voice - using the tone, volume and pace of your speaking to engage your audience and aid understanding

Script and Content - how to structure your script to educate, entertain and influence your audience

Engage and Influence - how to connect with your audience in the room to maximise their attention and your influence

Why Clarity matters

Having attended a Speaking with Confidence taster session recently with MSA, I can honestly say that the information and communication leading up to the event were both excellent, and that was the shape of things to come. Mark is extremely approachable and his methods to improve the delegates are efficient to say the least. He elicits participation and provides concise pointers for each individual in a really relaxed atmosphere.

Networking and Sales presentations that engage and entertain

Speak with Confidence

Confidence is you presence on the stage (or in front of the camera), your ability to overcome stage fright and nerves and ensure your body language matches your spoken words.

Your audience will not believe your message unless they first believe in you. Confidence is infectious, so you first need to be confident in your own message and ability to deliver it.

Our Speak with Confidence training includes these key areas:

Overcome stage fright and nerves - how to demolish your strongholds of doubt and fear (also known as self-limiting beliefs)

Speaking with your body - ensure your message and body language match and how to establish gravitas on the stage

Professional Stagecraft - learn the stagecraft secrets of the professionals: how to use props, PowerPoint do and don'ts, your position on the stage, pacing, practice for perfection, prompts and scripts and how to use a TelePrompTer (on our pro course only)

Speak with Courage

Courage is your ability to share your whole message, to sell or influence from the stage and deliver an effective call to action that produces the desired response in your audience.

You have something to say that people need to hear - so say it with courage

The difference between a good speaker and a great speaker is courage. Courage to share the whole story and how it affects your personally.  Courage to ask for the sale, courage to ask the audience to donate or invest in your cause.

Our Speak with Courage training includes these key areas:

How to find your voice and tell your story - the power of personal stories to engage and entertain

How to Influence the Outcome and sell from the stage - learn ethical influence techniques to use when speaking

How to call for action - ask for the sale, inspire volunteers, raise funds

How to deliver bad news in good ways - structure your narrative to achieve your desired results
