Advanced Course: Speak with Charisma

a 12-week public speaking course

Next course will start January 21st, 2021 – scroll below for details

Have you got over your worst fears of public speaking but know you could be making more of an impact?

What if you could speak so your listeners are hanging on your every word?

What if you had Charisma?

Charisma is a rare quality – we know when we see charisma because we feel compelled to listen to those who have it. There is a magic about them. We notice them as soon as they walk into a room.

We are so inspired by what they say that we find ourselves almost as enthusiastic as they are about the thing they are speaking about. They have a way of communicating that brings us alive and makes us feel good.

What if you too had the ability to do this? Just think what difference this could make to you in your life?

In truth, charisma is not god-given – it is something that can be learned and developed. When you are able to draw on its magic, your communication can truly be effortless – whether it’s delivering a presentation, speaking in meetings, promoting yourself or your services, or expressing your opinion in a more informal setting.

This 12 week course is designed for people who have participated in the Finding Your Voice Course or feel they have a certain amount of confidence in speaking in front of groups – but know there’s a whole lot further for them to go.

You’ll have lots of opportunity to practice and develop your speaking skills and stretch way further than you thought you could – in a safe environment with a great bunch of people who will support you to the hilt.

This group is designed for you if: 

  • You want to develop your speaking skills and get a whole lot more practice speaking in front of groups.
  • As a follow-on to the Finding Your Voice course.
  • You want to be able to inspire your listeners and overcome your  tendency to doubt yourself or your abilities.
  • You want to feel more comfortable promoting yourself, your ideas or a cause you believe in.
  • You just know that some part of you is in hiding and is keeping you away from the success that is rightfully yours. You need a safe place so that you can
  • You want to be seen, valued and recognised by the people who are important to you in your life and your career.

The group is limited to twelve people , and this means that you will build up a strong level of trust with a small group of people who are 100% in support of you making a significant breakthrough.

This makes the group a very safe place to explore any area where you are stuck. And you will also be able to work at an individual level. Then watch your life begin to transform in magical and unexpected ways.

Please note: it is fine to miss one or two sessions and still get enormous value from the group.

I have accomplished many things since doing the Finding Your Voice Course and an individual session. After the course I decided to take up boxing as a sport, but started of doing it in aid of Charity. This meant testing myself both mentally and physically. I performed in a boxing ring at a venue of 1200 guests. Being at the centre of attention is not something I like. But with some techniques I learned during the course and training, I was able to pull through and won my fight. This year I presented to the company my boxing journey, which was in front of at least 30 people. Furthermore I have done presentations, hosted meetings, now confidently run my own projects and have taken up the oppportunity to be a business champion in diversity, meaning I will be doing a lot of speaking and even presenting to more senior members of the business including my M.D. and board members. I am not sure how I’ve accomplished the above, but it’s been a remarkable journey so far and have you to thank for that.

I think what is particularly great about Making Moves courses is that they make you do things, you would probably never do elsewhere. Things like responding to the immediacy of the situation – may seem easy in theory, but in practice there is not much space to practise them in our everyday life. But the trick is that coming out of one’s comfort zone cannot happen in theory, it needs to be a real experience – and Claire’s courses will definitely make this experience happen.

Want to know what’s coming up soon?

My regular courses will return in mid September (with COVID 19 safeguards).

If you’re feeling ready to take the plunge and book for one of my courses – here’s a bit of useful info as to where to get started:

The Breakthrough Group is the first step for many people – particularly if you feel shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety. I’ve seen some miraculous transformations in my 20 years of running this course.

My next courses next start:
Wed 23rd Sept @ 7.45pm  and Tues 29th Sept   @5.30pm

Or, if speaking up in groups, being heard, or any kind of public speaking is your challenge, then the  Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start. Particularly if anxiety or nerves are an issue. I’ve had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

My next courses start:
Thurs 1st Oct @7pm

For people who can’t get to the London courses, I will be running a daytime course on Zoom. It starts Wednesday, 30th Sept @ 10am

“I don’t know what to say” improvisation for social confidencei s great for people with average confidence who experience some form of social anxiety or awkwardness but find themselves stumped with knowing what to say. Working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills.
