Public Speaking Training

Inform, persuade and entertain any audience be it the boardroom, on-stage or on-screen.

Enhance your storytelling and develop the art of delivering a message with confidence. Whether you’re new to giving speeches or are an experienced presenter, enhance your skills to prepare and present key messages of your story, use visual aids and props, incorporate body language into your presentations, and stillness.

Media Training

Media training can be highly effective in helping you develop the skills to get your message across succinctly and with impact. And when you are an effective spokesperson, the media will return to you again and again for expert commentary on your area of expertise.

Here are five compelling reasons to consider media training:

  1. Learn how to speak in a way that people take notice
  2. Clearly and concisely define your key messages
  3. Develop prepared responses to difficult questions
  4. Learn to control the media interview
  5. You’re less likely to get misquoted.

Master of Ceremonies

Engage an official host for your staged event or performance. Put your audience at ease with a professional and friendly Emcee to introduce speakers, make announcements, and keep the agenda flowing as smoothly as possible.

Amanda Kayne is a news anchor at CNNMoney Switzerland. In 2011 she joined Julius Baer as the communications face of the bank and to lead its global future trends initiative. Previously, the British native was a journalist for the BBC’s World Business Report and a reporter for CNBC Europe. She began her career as a current affairs presenter for the news network Russia Today.

Compering is all about being friendly and spontaneous so that the audience relaxes, and the keynote speakers receive the best welcome possible. All professional events should make room in the budget for a host.

Many thanks for your great moderation this week, it was a great discussion with a beautifully natural flow of the conversation between the panellists. The fact that it went longer than expected is a testimonial of the high interest of the participants.- GOOGLE

Thank you once again for instilling the confidence and reassurance I needed to enhance my practice.
I wish I'd done this course years ago. It was an extremely positive day and I'm looking forward to going back to write and deliver better presentations.
