What is a Public Speaking Coach?
Are you a confident speaker? Do you want to be a confident speaker? Do you have great public speaking skills? Do you need them for work? Public speaking coaching may be for you.
A speaking coach is an individual with experience of teaching, coaching and mentoring individuals to improve their communication skills and their presentation skills.
They usually have a background in business, sport, the military or the performing arts. They have a passion for helping people to achieve their life goals, including personal development and improving their business performance by tackling public speaking, presentation skills and communication skills too.
You don't need to be a professional speaker to get help from a public speaking coach - any kind of speaking situation can be improved - from Father of the Bride speeches to Funerals.
A public speaking coach isn't trying to turn you into a TED talk expert (although they could). They want you to feel confident as a public speaker and they want you to sound authentic when you are speaking in public.
What do public speaking coaches do?
Public speaking coaches provide coaching that helps people achieve their goals both personally and professionally - by improving the way that they speak in public. When you're in the business, having an expert public speaking coach can help improve your presentation skills and make a bigger and better impact at work.
Lots of people experiencing public speaking anxiety, so a public speaking coach can help you reduce that anxiety, build confidence with practical tips that makes a huge difference to your public speaking confidence.
You might meet a public speaking coach at a public speaking workshop, or perhaps one to one coaching session is more of what you're looking for. Even if you just want to learn some new skills, then a public speaking workshop may be a fun event to attend. Or if you know that you need presentation training for work, then perhaps that's the type of coaching you should look for. Either way, the route to authentic public speaking is often via a coach.
