Public speaking trainers  have clearly been taught to teach public speaking.  A public speaking trainer/s has to have some accreditation to be able to impart the important elements of public speaking.


Public speaking today requires one to have all the right elements. Such as  he or she must have the basic breathing and relaxation exercises.


Public speaking trainers can put the students at ease through the many many techniques  for example,  diction and enunciation skills, projection skills and voice and breathing exercises.


Public speaking trainers carefully nurture their students through encouragement and assistance.   I believe that as a public speaking trainer, I am more than qualified to do just this.  


I, as a public speaking trainer, have trained many many students for day to day public speaking,  various competition, such as the National Eisteddfod Acadamy, and Trinity Guildhall exams.  Communication  skills are   imperitive to try and get ones point across clearly.


Some of the requirements for public speaking skills, can include    Thanking a speaker,  or introducing a speaker, or being the main  keynote speaker.


Some of the topics that one can train for in the public speaking field is for example  an afterdinner speaker,  farewell speech ,  a persuasive or a moral speech.  Sermons or stories are also considered as public speaking speeches.   


 It is important to  receive one one one training, rather than group training in the public speaking field. I work with students intensly, making sure that if they are   speaking publically, they are fully prepared with correct body language, correct speech and diction and cue cards correctly placed.  Clearly the speeches have to be the correct timing, and delivery excellent


I also make absoloutely certain that the students who are speaking are totally comfortable with the topic they are talking about.  The topics must also be  age appropriate.




Courses are offered in Johannesburg or via Skype.
