In-person Public Speaking Workshops

Take control of your confidence

Increase confidence, build self-esteem and improve communication skills

Between being at work, working from home and all that life throws at us. It’s hardly surprising many of us are struggling with coping and our mental health is being impacted.

However making efforts to take back control and gain support and confidence is a huge step in the right direction.

I’ve been involved in public speaking for many years. I know what’s important when it comes to feeling comfortable, building confidence and being able to communicate what you are thinking, feeling, and hearing both in the workplace and at home.

This is even more important if you are struggling with mental health and you struggle with communicating and you lack confidence.

Imagine if you had strong Public Speaking Skills

You could walk into a room and talk to people you do not know. The networking fear that so many people have is nothing to you, as you have the skills to be able to walk into a room, walk up to a group of people you do not know and say hi. How amazing would that be?

My adult public speaking workshop will take you on a journey to learn these transferable skills.

You will learn about body language, self-acceptance, voice control and so much more. Its a deep dive into accepting who you are, learning the skills and coming out with a toolkit to be able to cope in any situation and support your mental health.

“Communication, it is the first thing we really learn in life. The funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say or how to ask for what we really need.”

How am I qualified?

Working as a magistrate, a toastmaster, a celebrant, an actress, voice-over artist and a public speaker.  I have a great deal of relevant experience. Once committed, I soon became a public speaking expert.

    I attended a public speaking workshop delivered by Sonal Dave and took so much away from it and felt liberated. My 14 year old son attended the one for young people as I feel it’s an essential life skill to have. He said he learnt a lot from it and described it as fun and interactive and Sonal made him and his cousin feel very comfortable

    Charul Bakhda

    Excellent experience. One of the best. Very interactive, concise, clear to the point, lots of tips and tricks shared and Sonal’s knowledge about the subject is deep and explained simply.
