Based in the City of London, we often work with fear of public speaking especially people whose careers depend on them regularly giving presentations to groups of varying sizes.
Public speaking can serve the purpose of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or encouraging people. This type of speech is deliberately structured with three general purposes: to inform, to persuade and to entertain. Knowing when public speaking is most effective and how it is done properly are key to understanding the importance of it.
Public speaking for business and commercial events is often done by professionals. These speakers can be contracted independently, through representation by a speakers bureau, or by other means. Public speaking plays a large role in the professional world. In fact, it is believed that 70 percent of all jobs involve some form of public speaking.
Many people find it relatively easy to speak to people one-to-one, but find it stressful to speak to large groups. The Speaking Circles method teaches you how you can relate to an audience as if you were relating one to one, immediately making you feel much more comfortable.
Even if you don’t find it easy to relate one to one, the simple introductory exercises that we practice will gradually allow you increase your ease in relating with others, allowing you to feel much more comfortable in one on one as well as group/audience situations.

Common symptoms of a fear of public speaking
Everyone experiences their fear of public speaking differently; however, there are a number of common symptoms you may endure when you have to speak in public:
- Profuse sweating
- Dry mouth
- Forgetting important points of your presentation or speech
- Finding it difficult to speak
- Speaking too fast
Public speaking anxiety is something that affects many people both in their professional and private lives. It’s an area of study that I have a very keen interest in. It stems from my teaching career in ‘Inner London’ and also in the Pharmaceutical industry. I have given many presentations to large, and often, very challenging audiences. This is definitely a course for those who want to get up and learn by doing.
