The most important part of the speaking process is rehearsal. Without real practice it is not possible to develop your skills. At monthly practice groups in Reading and London, held on Sunday afternoons, you can learn new techniques and most importantly get real practice time speaking and presenting to the group. Our Directors will lead you in structured sessions and work on your individual needs in a fun, coaching environment. Practice is a MUST if you really want to improve.

"Neve is a special kind of trainer. Not only is she very perceptive to the atmosphere in the room, she is also very capable in tuning into the attendee's mood and comment / reflect on this with expert ease. Honest in her feedback, and always respectful, she lets people in her classroom shine, and knows which bits of feedback to provide that increase people's effectiveness and learning 10-fold. You will come out of her training / coaching sessions with new insights, and with a clear plan on how to make it work for you. It's been a pleasure working with her."
"Neve taught me techniques and different styles in public speaking and how to tailor to different situations. I learnt how to train large and small groups and how to really make a huge impression and make sure that everything I said was understood and retained. I have had other workshops but they never made a difference - but Neve did. She is incredibly supportive and knowledgable which makes a huge difference in the teaching process. If you have the opportunity to learn from her I would take that in a heartbeat. Thank you for the changes you made to my life for the best!"
"I have had the pleasure of attending Neves trainings on several occasions over the last years. She is a very experienced and skilled trainer, with a remarkable presence, an ability to listen and learn from her participants – and to make them the centre of the training. Her skill, combined with her warm and positive personality makes it a real pleasure to attend any training she delivers, and I would recommend Neve for training any group of sales trainers, retail staff or store managers."
"Neve spotted my potential and helped me to understand how to captivate an audience. Thanks to her vast knowledge in theatre, she built performance art into the training - I developed skills one would only hope to accrue at drama school. Merging these skills with her forward thinking delivery techniques, my training sessions were loved by all. Theatre was at the heart of my development with Neve, and through her guidance, I was able to convey confidence and captivate an audience of hundreds. She saw what was missing and created something great, from nested loops to spoken word I am confident that I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Neve's skill and drive in the field."
