Inspirational public speakers know how to immediately and ‘effortlessly’ command your attention as soon as they walk on stage, and hold it until their last words are spoken.

If your inner voice justifies you don’t need good speaking skills to progress your career because your qualifications are as long as your arm, David challenges this belief. As a speaking coach, he’s not afraid to push you out of your comfort zone so your speaking skills improve.
People judge your intelligence on your public speaking ability. You may have the best content in the world, but if it’s presented badly, you’ll lose the audience’s respect and be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
Whether you present on the platform, in the boardroom or on the local P & C committee, getting your message across clearly is an essential life skill.
