Most people experience nerves when public speaking. For some, it’s a slight feeling of apprehension. At the other end of the scale, it’s leg-wobblingly, stomach-churningly, terrifying!
You might be happy addressing 500 people but get spooked when it’s 2,000. Perhaps you enjoy presenting to up to three people but feel shaky when it’s more than five. Maybe it’s not the numbers that bother you at all, but a particular type of audience that sends you into a cold sweat - customers, peers, industry experts, academics, chief bods... name your kryptonite. 
The good news is, nerves are normal. And with a few techniques and insight into your personal triggers, you can calm and manage them.
Our 1-2-1 Managing Nerves package is focused on addressing the nerves which are holding you back, so you can communicate confidently with any audience and elevate your public speaking impact. This can also be tailored for your company and delivered as a group course.
This course is led by Liz Balmford, our specialist in developing confident public speaking leaders. Liz is an experienced coach and public speaking trainer. Her work connects vocal communication with personal and commercial impact by ensuring consistent, confident and memorable communication. Liz helps senior executives and leaders clear their blocks and calm their nerves so they can communicate to large audiences as confidently as they do to individuals.

I had amazing feedback today. The organiser said it was fantastic! And I've picked up 5 or 6 potential clients as a result—I am buzzing! Thank you so much.

I just wanted to thank you for your support with preparing my presentation for yesterday’s meeting. I didn’t feel the usual dread in the lead up to it and I managed to control my nerves on the day....Thank you so much for giving me confidence in myself and my presentation

After two sessions with Liz, I feel my presentations have a more powerful narrative and impact on my audience and I feel far more in control when I'm presenting. I'm able to use pauses and my language more purposefully, rather than hurrying through a lot of guff. From the presentations I've given since the sessions with Liz, I've received a number of requests to speak at other events and was even told by one audience member he was impressed by how good I was - it felt great!
