Get buy-in and commitment to your ideas

In business, every conversation is a presentation. Every meeting, every one-to-one, every time your people speak to others – virtually or face-to-face, they’re presenting. Whether the setting’s formal or informal, internal or external, being skilled at public speaking is a must-have, not just a nice-to-have. It’s essential. Mumbling in a monotone or simply reading from slides isn’t acceptable or professional.

Only a small number of people find public speaking easy, and one in four have a fear of it. For some, this means wobbly legs and shaky voice, and for others it means not being able to speak even a single word. However, with the right training and support, anyone can learn to not only endure presenting, but to enjoy it.

Speak First’s interactive presentation courses and coaching can run virtually or face-to-face, using live feedback from the trainer and peers to help you make rapid progress – whatever your level. Those new to public speaking quickly gain the confidence and competence to impress at their first presentations, while experienced presenters learn powerful techniques to influence, engage and inspire audiences large and small. We also deliver specific coaching to add the wow factor to critical ‘big occasion’ presentations, such as conferences and all-hands meetings.

All our learning solutions stand on their own as high quality and high impact interventions, but they’re at their very best when delivered as part of a wider programme. We can work with you to build a personalised programme that meets your own specific needs. We can seamlessly blend together virtual classrooms, face-to-face sessions, 1-2-1 and group coaching and more, to give you choice and flexibility.

Flexible Learning Delivery

To suit your needs

Speak First create innovative learning solutions across a multitude of platforms that exceed individual and organisational learning outcomes. Training can be delivered virtually or face-to-face using the following solutions.

OUR APPROACH

HOW WE WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH YOU

With over 30 years’ experience designing and delivering training, and a proven track record of success, we know how workplace development can fundamentally improve an organisation and positively impact people’s whole lives.

We are passionate about what we do, and we want to share this experience with you. From the first conversation to the post-programme evaluations, we put you in the driving seat. Everything we design and deliver is based on your needs and what will bring the most benefit to your people. We create tangible and sustainable change.

Here’s how we do it:

1.
Everything starts with you

Get in touch and our team of Global Account Managers and L&D Consultants will talk through your needs and wants for your organisation. We make sure to hear from key stakeholders, including, where appropriate, employee focus groups, before making our recommendations. Every programme and every session we design will be based on your strategic imperatives, and we work together to agree the KPIs for success – we always take the time to get to know you, your organisation and your teams, so we can help you in the best way possible.

2.
Your unique needs become a bespoke learning programme

Once the scope of the programme and the desired learning outcomes have been agreed, our team of expert designers get to work.
They create a programme outline using a mix of virtual classrooms, face-to-face training, in-between work, buddy systems and more to create a completely bespoke series of learning interventions which directly align to your strategic goals and wider L&D initiatives. We also create the measurement tools to help you see the real, tangible difference the learning makes to your organisation.

3.
Your programme comes to life with innovative and sustainable design

From this outline, we develop your content. Our L&D Consultancy Team writes each session, filling it with in-depth theory and models, opportunities for practical application, discussions and real-life examples specifically related to your organisation and culture. We recognise that everyone learns in different ways, and we design our programmes to cater to all needs and preferences.

4.
We take your people on a journey

Your bespoke programme is now ready for delivery. You have access to our full range of trainers, and we will carefully match the right trainers to your organisation, based on their expertise and personal style. We have a thorough system of constant review after every session, to ensure we only deliver the highest quality training, and to quickly adapt to participant and client feedback.

5.
We add real value to your organisation

After the conclusion of your programme, we continue the conversation to help you measure the effectiveness of the learning outcomes and how they have positively affected your people. We always want to give you value for money and help you see a return on your investment, so we talk you through the results and compare them to the KPIs and learning outcomes agreed at the start.
