Public Speaking Courses

One-to-One Public Speaking Courses

There are many reasons to opt for one-to-one coaching rather than attending one of our public speaking courses. Depending on your objectives, you may find that a one-to-one course suits you better. 
Intensive Coaching
The most obvious reason is that you’ll learn much more in a shorter space of time at a one-to-one intensive session. You’ll receive the full attention of the trainer, rather than it being divided with other delegates. At Business Training Direct, we do keep our course numbers low at 6-8 delegates, but nothing compares with the one-on-one attention you’ll receive at a coaching session. 
Tailored to You
Courses are tailored to your individual requirements so you’ll get maximum benefit. The session will focus on you as an individual, your level of skill and strengths and weaknesses as a speaker. We can focus specifically on aspects of public speaking that you struggle with. Perhaps you have difficulties preparing a speech or maybe your body language needs work. You won’t need to waste time listening to parts of a generic course that are irrelevant to you.
Focus on a Particular Speech/Interview
You may wish to improve your presentation skills because you have an important speech or presentation on the horizon. If that’s the case, we can coach you for that particular speech and delivering to that specific audience.
Instant Answers & Feedback
You’ll be free to ask questions and get instant answers and feedback throughout the session. This gives you the opportunity to get exactly what you want from your time with the trainer. 
At a Time Convenient to you
You will not be restricted to certain times or dates. You can receive training at a time and place that fits your schedule, not the other way round. This is ideal for senior managers and executives who don’t have many openings in their dairies. It can be extremely difficult to free-up an entire day or longer and travel to a course that may not be entirely worth your while.
If you’d like more information about our one-to-one public speaking courses, call 0845 056 9696 and speak to an advisor. You can arrange to speak to the trainer directly to ensure we can meet your requirements.

Public Speaking Courses for Wedding Parties

Business Training Direct now offer bespoke public speaking courses for wedding parties. Training your wedding speakers means brilliant speeches and an unforgettable reception, without any faux pas.
You may put a huge amount of effort, time and money into arranging your wedding. No matter how long you agonise over table centrepieces or napkin holders – it probably won’t make or break your big day. There are however, some aspects of your preparations that really will make a difference. 
Dance lessons, for instance are something memorable for the bride and groom to share and provide great entertainment for your guests. Feeling graceful, sophisticated and confidence on the dance floor will help you enjoy the day more – so they’re surely worth investing in.
The same is true of the speeches – they’ll affect the mood and atmosphere of your wedding reception. If a relative or friend gives a boring, unfunny, offensive or lack-lustre speech – it can be a big disappointment.  On the flip side – when someone makes a heartfelt, memorable, funny speech; it will be remembered for years to come. 
Unfortunately, not everyone is naturally gifted at public speaking – wedding speeches can be twice as difficult as the speaker is also to expected talk about their feelings. This can be especially daunting for old-dad who doesn’t say much at the best of times and is uncomfortable at the very thought of it. It can also be risky to let a nervous best man loose on stage – imagine a 20 minute, full blown account of the Grooms exploits while they were at University together.
That’s why Business Training Direct offers tailor-made public speaking courses for wedding parties. Father of the bride, best man, groom, bride or chief bridesmaid can contact us for special rates for the coaching of 2 or more people from the same wedding party. 

The party will learn how to prepare and deliver a successful speech. This is not only a great gift for the delegate who will learn many transferrable skills – it will also make for truly memorable speeches for all the right reasons.
