The Art of Speaking in Public
In a world where most adults find the prospect of networking and speaking in public frightening, Fiona offers interactive and practical speaking (and listening) skills training to help people positively overcome these fears and harness their adrenalin. She helps people to communicate with verve and appropriateness in any situation and to fully engage their audience. Nervous energy can be an advantage to add ‘edge’ and inspiration to the delivery. Fiona can even help you to enjoy getting up and speaking in public!
The ‘Speak Up, Stand Out, Be Heard’ workshop is run as an open course for people who want to develop their skills of speaking and performance, get over their fear, and build on their current expertise.
The groups are small, usually no more than six, so you will receive plenty of individual attention from the trainer, as well as the advantage of learning with and receiving feedback from a supportive group of participants.
We can also run the workshop in organisations specifically for your employees with the number of attendees and length of workshop to suit you. You are the ‘locus’, the workshops can be tailor-made to fit your desired start and end point. Workshops can be run for people with very little experience, or for people who are experienced but want to particularly concentrate on one area.
You can choose from specialising in:
- The Art of Presentations/Pitches
- The Art of Giving Speeches
- The Art of Story Telling
- The Art of Performance
Locus Coaching can also tailor-make a workshop to suit any specific communication goal you may have. For example issues Fiona has helped clients to resolve include:
- how to control conflict in the classroom using the voice – for a senior group of teachers.
- perfecting the pitch to a specific client and allocating the right team members to the task.
- creating a great fundraising event involving presentations and readings

Thanks for a brilliant workshop. I’ve learnt about my strengths and weaknesses and a lot from other people and watching them in action. You were great at giving feedback and made everyone feel confident; creating a safe environment for people to try out new techniques. I’ve never been to a workshop before where I’ve felt so comfortable with a group of complete strangers.
