Public Speaking Courses, One-to-One Sessions & Workshops for Children & Adults

Communicate effectively and overcome your fear of public speaking

Would you like to communicate with confidence?

Did you know that three out of four people have a fear of getting up and speaking in front of others? The thought of people staring at them and judging them makes the fear even worse. But the truth is, in life, you need Public Speaking Skills to be able to communicate with confidence.

Public Speaking is a skill that is required for life. Speaking one to one, at business team meetings, with suppliers, with your clients, at events, talking about your product, at an interview, at school, college or university and so much more.

It is time to break that cycle of fear and learn tips and skills to jump-start the next phase in your journey.

Online public speaking courses for adults and children

Communicating and Speaking with Confidence can be learnt at any age. From children as young as 4 years to teenagers and adults; everyone can benefit from increased confidence when speaking.

Having the confidence to get up and speak is not easy. Many young children, teenagers and adults are shy and not very confident, some of them are nervous and scared and others will just want to run away at the thought of having to speak in front of others. This is all very normal.

My online courses will help you or your child to start to overcome those fears and increase confidence.

My name is Tanaiya and I’m 15 years old. Before the public speaking course with Sonal, I lacked confidence and always dreaded speaking in front of a group of people. However, thanks to Sonal, I have definitely overcome this fear. She’s really friendly and comforting too which definitely helps to open up more. After learning about speeches and presenting, she helped me write my own CV, cover letter and prepare questions for an interview which I had as my last session where she recorded it and went through all the good things I did, and how to improve too. I worked with Sonal for around 9 months and had weekly sessions, and I definitely see a huge difference in myself, and my parents and friends would agree too!

I can’t recommend and thank Sonal enough!

Sonal is a lovely, friendly and very warm person. Upon chatting to her, I found out that she does an online public speaking course and straight away I knew she could help my daughter, so I booked weekly sessions for my daughter. After she finished the public speaking course, Sonal also taught her about writing CVs and cover letters and then interview skills too. After every session, I could see a difference in my daughter as she started getting more open, confident, gained self-esteem, and her body language changed. I would recommend Sonal to every parent especially if they would like their child to thrive. Thank you Sonal!

Public Speaking One-to-One Sessions 2023

At the beginning of this course, I did not think that I was a good public speaker. However, through this course, I have learnt that I can become good at this. My name is Tanush, aged fourteen and this is my testimonial.

Before I started this course, I was not particularly good at presenting at school. However, Sonal Dave’s course has helped me improve my public speaking skills and has taught me many important tips and tricks that I can use when I speak in front of an audience. Throughout the course, Sonal has provided me with feedback on what I had done well and what needed improvement. This helped me very much to reflect on what I could do to improve my public speaking skills.

I have learnt about how to use my body language, tone of voice and posture to enhance my presentation and to engage the audience, as well as how to write answers to questions using the 5 Ws. Sonal Dave’s course is filled with engaging, fun activities which helped me to refine my public speaking skills, via practising and other tasks. Sonal Dave has also taught me about how to be a good public speaker, you must be self-acceptant of how you look and how you sound, even if you are not happy with either of these. From this course, I have learnt the diverse ways in which you should start and end your presentation, without making it boring for the audience, but to keep it engaging and prevent the audience from losing interest.

After I had completed this course, I think that I have ameliorated my skills, and I now find it easier to present in front of others.

I believe that through this course and my lessons with Sonal Dave, I have found that I have become more confident in a skill that is beneficial in the future, and I would like to express my gratitude to Sonal Dave for helping me with this.

Public Speaking Course 2023

I came across Sonal Dave’s website a few months ago when I was searching for someone to help my nearly 14 year old son with his public speaking skills. Sonal was very easy to get in touch with. During our initial conversation, Sonal explained how her course works. Being with a very academic and competitive bunch of boys at school, I always thought that my son could use some professional help to be more confident in expressing his thoughts and ideas. Quite a few of his teachers always commented on him not participating in discussions as much as they wanted him to despite knowing a lot about the topic being discussed. Sonal started by getting to know my son better with the aid of a story telling exercise. Gradually she built up his confidence and gave him all the helpful tips and tricks. He definitely seems more confident and well equipped now when it comes to public speaking. He has acknowledged that this course has helped him. I would definitely recommend Sonal Dave. Thank you Sonal!

I highly recommend Sonal for her public speaking course for kids. My 12 year old daughter has improved so much in her communication after the course with Sonal. Sonal is very kind and naturally good with kids, Sonal knows exactly how to guide children. Thank you so much Sonal.
