The Leadership Team Public Speaking Accelerator
Alex is an incredible speaker coach and this course provided rigorous, hands-on insight into how to deliver a great speech. From choosing a theme, structuring, writing and refining content; all the way through to the stage. Whilst delivered 'remotely' and with a number of other participants on the course, I really felt like I was able to benefit from his thorough individual attention - he made himself available for calls and provided a huge amount of specific, one-to-one feedback. I found the experience very challenging... in a great way. It has given me critical tactical strategies for pursuing more public speaking - plus the all-important confidence I was probably lacking to put my head above the parapet on a subject matter I feel strongly about, but was somewhat reluctant to jump into. I'm 'all in' now.

Stand out on stage
Each module will be delivered through a live group coaching call at the beginning of the week. At the end of the call, everyone will be given 24 hours to complete a 1-hour task which will be uploaded to the course hub (a secret Facebook group) ahead of feedback which will be given in individual coaching calls with Alex later that week.
The goal? To provide the pathway for your team to:
Uncover and communicate their core message with clarity,
Create narratives that will take audiences on a journey of discovery,
Discover a toolkit of techniques to make their presentations sing,
Write talks that educate, influence and inspire,
Position themselves as thought leaders in the industry.
Frankly, Alex is remarkably intelligent, both brutal and constructive, and made me rewrite my talk so many times I almost gave up. Yet he spent tons of time helping me refine it and it's now something I'm really proud of. On top of that, I've learned presentation skills, body language, timing, and how to connect with an audience. Everyone in the cohort gives feedback to one another too, which has been really valuable. The course moves at a fast pace and Alex pushes you hard, however I can honestly say that it's been one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences I've had professionally by a considerable distance.

Module 1 It's said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and what seperates great public speakers from the rest is their ability to pinpoint and communicate with their message with absolute clarity. So in this module, I will show you exactly how to find and articulate a message that matters.
✅ Uncover an idea that can inspire change ✅ Communicate with clarity ✅ Give your talk purpose
Module 2 Speech writing can be a pain, especially when you want your talk to pack a punch! The good news is that it doesn't have to be and this module will change the way you craft your talks forever.
✅ Hook your audience ✅ Create a journey of discovery ✅ Close with impact
Module 3 Every great speaker has their own signature style and this is the module where your talk will transform from something that could have been delivered by anyone, into something that could only have been delivered by you.
✅ Develop your speakers toolbox ✅ Construct persuasive arguments ✅ Master the power of words
Module 4 The human voice is the most powerful instrument in the world, if you know how to play it. An incredible talk script will never be more than that unless you learn how to captivate your audience.
✅ Conquer pre-speech nerves ✅ Radiate confidence on stage ✅ Deliver with conviction
Module 5 Imagine being able to share your message while you sleep, seems like a pipe dream right? Well, a 15 minute talk that's viewed 96 views per day, or 35,040 per year is the equivalent of your message being shared 24/7. Now that is speaking smart!
✅ Take your message global ✅ Get press coverage for your cause ✅ Generate lucrative business opportunities
Bring the cohort together to perfrom their brand new talks for the very first time at the end of programme speech delivery day.
✅ Perform your talk ✅ Celebrate with the team ✅ Leave the programme ready for the stage!
This course was brilliant, from building the talk to the performance itself, Alex's guidance has been spot on. He cut down almost 4 minutes of my talk with a simple opening action of trying to light a cigarette on stage which made the audience gasp and illustrated my entire original opening paragraph perfectly. I couldn't recommend it enough for even the most seasoned professional.
