Public Speaking

“Studies show public speaking skills are now the most valued skills top companies will look for in the future – even more valued than technical skills.” – Harvard Business Review

Do you want your students to develop the ability to SPEAK EFFECTIVELY in front of any group – with confidence, clarity – authentically, naturally, with ease?


Our programs are fun, content-rich, insightful – and they will benefit aspiring speakers of all ages, at all levels, from the very first session!

We offer accelerated, innovative public speaking classes in 8-week, 12-week, and 20-week sessions depending on your goals and needs.

Our programs are now VIRTUAL, using the ZOOM platform. In-person, On-site classes will resume as health conditions improve and appropriate decisions can be made to do so!

Our programs include weekly classes, class activities, homework assignments, additional one-on-one coaching (when needed), resources, and students receive the RISE certification upon completion of the course!
