Public Speaking

Public Speaking doesn't necessarily mean speaking in front of a large group of people, it could be just a handful of people but the fact that they are looking at you and waiting for you to speak can be terrifying.

The most important thing you have to do is slow your brain down. It will try to make you speak too fast and then you will panic. Slow down, open your mouth and say what you want to share.

Preparation is important, if you know in advance that you have to speak, practice out loud.

Make eye contact with your listeners, this doesn't mean that you have to stare at them, but glance at them occasionally so that they know they are included.

What people say about me .....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

I’m lucky enough to have had some elocution classes with Serena face-to-face some years ago in Bournemouth. Having English as a second language I used Serena’s knowledge and professionalism to help me, at first, to understand that an accent can be a part of your character and this gives your speech some flavour. The important bit is to understand and learn how to speak every single word clearly, with a good pace, with high and lows which make your speech interesting. It was enlightening, and now I have found online all those wonderful classes with a genuine English lady. This is priceless. Thank you Serena!

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. The teachers were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
