Speaking in Public

The term 'Speaking in Public' can bring up images of huge halls with hundreds of listeners in the audience but the same fears and anxieties prevail when there are only one or two listeners in a much smaller room.

Speaking in public,especially on a small scale, is as essential today as it ever was. Even today, with emails, faxes and texts, the spoken word is the most effective way of communicating in business.

At Do Not Mumble I run courses that cover basic clear speech for all employees and particularly for those who have direct contact with the public.

We all know how annoying it is when visiting the dentist, doctor, lawyer, shops etc and we have to ask the person we are dealing with to keep repeating themselves.

You might be a brilliant dentist, kind and knowledgeable but can your patients hear you?

Your company might make the best pies in the South of England but can your sales team sell them?

Are you the busiest travel agent in your town?

Good communication in the workplace can make all the difference.

To get more details of individual lessons please look at this page.

Remember - Improved communication in the workplace can only be good for your business.

If your employees improve their speaking in public skills they will not only sound more confident but will feel more confident and will be more successful.

Don't miss this amazing offer -Join my online 'Speak clearly & Confidently' video course. The course covers all of the basics and is just like having a lesson with me for just £9.99.  You can watch it over and over again forever. 

'I had a mumbling issue which led me to go to a speech therapist and pay £100 per session, after losing £200 and still not having a solution, I came across this course and I had quickly found the solution to my problem. Over and above that, I got a lot more out of this course, more than anything a real enlightenment as to how I speak, how that comes across and how I can improve my speech to get better outcomes out of conversations and speeches. Thank you Serena.'

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.

'....explained everything professionally well and honest she gave very good useful tips and has this unique charm and engaging voice that soothes my fears of always being afraid to speak to others because they might judge me and she was thoroughly precise and to the point and she gave quite a lot of useful longevity tips for everyday use. IMPRESSIVE 5 STARS!!'

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!
