'Great public speakers are made, not born.’

Transformative Programs

If someone looks as though they’re ‘winging it’ and speaking off the cuff, think again. The best speakers out there have put in a lot of hard work, preparation, and dedication in order to make it look easy. Maria offers several options of training and workshops for individuals and group workshops if you are:

  • Beginning to speak publicly and want to learn techniques and skills to find more confidence and clarity
  • Feel your presentations are flat and colourless and can’t figure out why
  • Want to stand out from others and be memorable in your presentations
  • Are a veteran speaker who wants to polish up your skills and connect even more effectively
  • Suffer from nerves and anxiety that are stopping you from giving your absolute best

Look no further. Here is where it starts.

Power of you

Public speaking is like any other new skill. You just need the basic techniques and skills, put in the time to practice, and get expert feedback.  My training will help you to:

  • Find your natural speaking voice
  • Employ breathing techniques and skills to support the voice and manage nerves
