A training series of 3 workshops (half or full day):
Session 1. Confidence & Presence | Session 2 High Engagement | Session 3 Influence & Persuasion
This 3 session Speakers Confluence® training series gives you truly embedded results, with a hands-on participant approach.
This is achieved through:
- Spaced repetition of learning techniques over the 3 sessions
- Content creation and refinement during sessions (including slides)
- Delivery skills practice: impromptu and presentation-specific
- PDF resources sent after each session for reinforcement and added learning
- Coaching and feedback during the sessions
- Videotaping – if desired
- Online videos of key ideas to refer to and reinforce learning
- Post training follow-up access to me for any questions
Each participant gives a presentation – or section – in each session. These can be different, or the same one improved and refined each time.
Our consultants found it a delight and a pleasure working with Sarah. Her modules were constructed with content that were grounded in psychology and human behavior. Her practical tips and approaches were well received too. During her workshops, Sarah was able to draw out the most reluctant of our consultants and make them participate enthusiastically.
The sessions were thoroughly enjoyable while being educational and practical. Thank you, Sarah. We have no hesitation in recommending Sarah’s course to others who are looking for such programs.
When asked by Senior Management to arrange public speaking training for middle managers lacking these skills and confidence, I looked for an external public speaking professional to assist.
Sarah customised a 3 stage program for us and was extremely flexible in arranging delivery of training to fit in with our upcoming Conference. All staff who attended improved their public speaking skills very quickly but most importantly all reported a massive shift in confidence and self-belief. As expressed by one participant: “I now know that I can do this.”
I recommend Sarah highly and am hoping to have her back to deliver more presentation training in the future.
What a wonderful experience this was! Sincere thanks from the Assets team at Southern Grampians Shire Council. We were a diverse group with unique challenges but your tailored program allowed us to develop as individuals, in the areas we needed most. Your workshops were challenging, but engaging and fun as well – no easy feat given two out of three were delivered remotely during Covid. You’ve armed us with techniques we can use professionally and personally for the rest of our lives. Best of all, I no longer fear the spotlight! In our first session I realised I’d been carrying around more than 30 years of false beliefs about my public speaking abilities, then I let them go. What a gift that was.
Something I found particularly good about Sarah’s style was her individual approach. She recognised that each individual person had strengths and weaknesses and helped everyone with their unique weaknesses. Normally these training sessions have a “one size fits all“ approach and that was certainly not the case here.
I really enjoyed the three sessions and got some good information – (for me) learnt a lot about how to present in a less structured way.
