What could you achieve from our Effective Communication Course?

WRITE CONFIDENT PRESENTATIONS, SPEECHES + PITCHES

Learn to write a speech or presentation that is rich in content, has that magic spark that makes people want to listen and to deliver it in a way that gets results.

WAVE BYE BYE TO BAD HABITS

If you have some verbal ticks, filler sounds or bad habits, then it is important that they dont get in the way when delivering a presentation. Our technique shows you how to rid yourself of these distractions so that other people can focus entirely on you and your message.

BE IN CHARGE OF THE IMPRESSION YOU MAKE

Armed with the right tools, you will learn the art of non-verbal communication: how to have authority and presence, what is too little and what is too much, and why your body language is essential to holding your listener’s attention.

CONNECT WITH YOUR AUDIENCE

Learn to engage your listeners and build connections through your eye contact and body language. Perfect your vocal delivery to make sure you’re sharing your ideas in an authentic and engaging way – both in person and online.

Looking for a 1-to-1 communication solution?

Our coaches will support you to identify where there is room for improvement in your presentation technique and give you the tools you need to grow and develop into a consistently great presenter. From sounding more engaging through to crafting more succinct and persuasive arguments, we will help you achieve your presenting goals.

START WITH A TASTER

In this one-hour taster session your coach will find out your goals, strengths and challenges. They will build a road map of your communication, and create a plan for you of 5, 10 or 15 sessions. You will learn some key presentation tools and get a sense of our unique approach.

ONE TO ONE TAILORED COACHING

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Your coach will fully tailor the course around your unique needs, goals and challenges, measuring success on your terms. They will also give you a practice plan and assignments, helping you embed and integrate tools in your life so that you see lasting results.

THE PRACTICALS

Each one to one session is an hour long and tailored to your course plan. You will be given a 130+ page Effective Communication manual packed with Serlin Method™ resources. We recommend you take weekly sessions where possible. We offer 5, 10 and 15 session bundles.

FILMED AND RECORDED

In each session we use recordings so that you can see and hear your progress for yourself. This puts you in the driving seat. It’s not about us telling you what is good, you get to see for yourself the profound effects of the tools you have just learned thereby accelerating your learning and engagement.

Our Methodology

Our effective communication methodology incorporates techniques from a wide range of disciplines and brings it together in a creative, fun, simple and intuitive way.

We help you make physical adjustments which will have a knock on effect on how you feel inside, even changing your brain chemistry and overall sense of confidence.

Our tools help you to be in control of how you feel, with fear-busting and confidence-building techniques that change the way you behave and appear.

We film you before we teach you the tool and again when you are using the tool so that you can see the profound effect each simple one has on your communication.  

The tools themselves are step-by-step processes which are intuitive and simple. They are based on what the best communicators do and are made accessible.

The presentation skills method is based on a foundation of performance, up-to-date psychology and coaching techniques.

 

Authenticity + Connection = Engagement. We use our simple communication throughout the course to help you see what is working and why.

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
"My experience with London Speech workshop was amazing. We need to be able to communicate consistently, because we are delivering messages to people who we didn't think were listening. I am now a more confident person., I actually enjoy talking now, whereas I didn't really before. It's changed my life in a very positive way.
“If you choose just one course to improve your public speaking, I doubt you will find better than London Speech Workshop. Truly career-changing speech development.”
