Speaking as a Leader

Inspiring an Audience with Your Speech. Public Speaking for Senior Managers.


Speaking as a Leader is a presentation skills workshop that teaches senior managers how to give an authentic speech that will not only move and persuade listeners, but spark them into action too.

Drawing from the rules of rhetoric, storytelling and performance, the workshop equips delegates with a broad and detailed understanding of how powerful public speaking is achieved. The course helps emerging leaders to inspire staff and thereby meet their organisation's objectives.


By the end of the Speaking as a Leader workshop delegates will know how to:

  • Understand the needs of any target audience
  • Apply the three classic rhetoric principles - ethos, logos and pathos
  • Use rhetorical concepts skilfully
  • Define their key message
  • Craft a memorable sound-bite
  • Apply storytelling techniques so the speech takes the audience on a journey
  • Narrate a pertinent story or anecdote
  • Deliver an inspiring call to action
  • Be themselves - ensure that their character comes across
  • Use their gestures, faces and voices to complement the verbal message
  • Project their voices in spaces with lively acoustics

“This was an excellent event, very well presented and professionally put together. It covered practical, actual and hypothetical situations including projection and voice control. Would definitely recommend this to other members.”
