Fear of public speaking is common in the workplace
Half of our clients say that they have chosen career paths to avoid public speaking or that their fear of public speaking has stopped them applying for promotions and other job opportunities. Many of these people hold mid-level and even senior roles but are not progressing because their fear is holding them back.
Supporting your employees by paying for public speaking training and/or giving them the time off work can produce a great return on investment - including improving staff retention, increasing internal promotions, and helping your organisation achieve diversity targets.
Our public courses are designed for people who want to build their public speaking confidence in a small group environment away from work colleagues.
Fear-less can run a (typically six week) public speaking course for a group of 8-10 of your employees. As well as teaching skills and strategies for managing nerves, these courses are a great team building experience. This is a cost effective way of investing in your people. You will find that staff gain skills and confidence as well as enhanced general wellbeing.
Fear-less also runs half and full day in-house workshops aimed at boosting staff confidence. These workshops are a great team building experience and help motivate people to develop their public speaking skills. The workshop can be tailored to meet your needs.
