I went into this intending to just 'get better' at public speaking, but I've come out with with far more than that; not least, the headline spot at TEDxCamden. 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.

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.

This course was brilliant. As someone who does a lot of public speaking and writing professionally, I initially joined to make sure I was fully prepared for my biggest speaking gig yet. However, this course showed me just how much I still had left to learn! From building the talk to the performance itself, Alex's guidance is always 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.

'So it seems like you taught me well and that I have got the hang of this speaking thing...I got a bloody standing ovation yesterday!
