    I had a one day one-on-one session with Lee Furness to help me prepare for an event I was MCing as I had never done it before. He gave me excellent tips, made me feel more confident, and worked on my content for me. From the get go, he … More helped me break out of my shell. The event was a true success and I have come out of this actually enjoying owning the stage! Everyone needs Lee in their lives!

  • Avatar Sam G. ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Billal is quite simply phenomenal. In just a short period of time I have improved my speaking skills and overall confidence so much so that others have noticed the shift immediately without them even knowing I had my sessions. He made me … More feel at ease from our very first conversation with his warm and friendly demeanour. He really listened to my challenges to tailor his coaching approach to fit my personal needs and really empowered me to be a better speaker. I cannot wait to continue on this journey with Billal and see just far I can go with his expert coaching.
  • Avatar Helen Taylor ★★★★★ a year ago
    Billal has been brilliant. He has a knack for identifying what areas and issues need to be addressed. He does this in a focused, professional way whilst being relaxed and warm. When I opened up about something he was empathic and kind.Public … More speaking has always been something I’ve dreaded and been bad at. I want to overcome this negativity I feel towards it and make it something I’m capable of doing, and hopefully ultimately even something I enjoy.I’m really enjoying being taught by Billal and value his advice and guidance.

He is world class in his field, his ability to question, coach and challenge people to think beyond, to explore new possibilities is second to none. He's done … More this with me countless times. I've worked with Bilal and his team for years and without hestitaion I would recommend him and his team to help any organisation and individual to reach new performance heights.

  • Avatar Tara’s Kind of People TKoP ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    The Public Speaking Academy have been working with me in a one-on-one custom coaching setting. They have helped me with the craft of including more of "me" into my presentation. I am already an experienced presenter/trainer. … More My challenge was how to tell "my story" in a compelling, emotional, and genuine way that would captivate the audience and get them hooked right away. Billal helped me to figure out what part of "my story" to tell, and most importantly "how to tell it". I would definitely recommend working with Billal to develop your own voice and style to achieve progress towards personal and professional goals.Tara HussainDirectorGoldmark Training

  • Avatar Sophie Mei Lan (Sophie Mei Lan) ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Brilliant. I thought I knew a lot. But there was so much more to learn to get to the next level! Thank you so much!
  • Avatar Roger Cheetham ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    When I first came across Public Speaking Academy, I pretty much dismissed it, for no other reason than we often don't appreciate what's on our own doorstep.On the speaking front, it was Public Speaking Academy that opened the … More door for me to share my keynote speech of how I went from attempted murder "victim", to survivor, and on to "thriver", as I now describe myself. The reason this was so special was that it wasn't delivered in a training room, but from the stage of Sheffield's iconic ""Crucible Theatre" for an audience of over 600 business people.On the business front, I knew I had a calling to share my message, to help others, but had so many hang ups when it came to monetising this, in order for it to remain sustainable. I had so many belief, mindset and perception issues holding me back, which thankfully Public Speaking Academy has helped me address. I'm still a "work in progress", but what progress there has been!
  • Avatar Bill Best ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    The Public Speaking Academy offers high-quality professional training in public-speaking for people at all levels of skill working in a wide range of professions. The Public Speaking Academy will quickly take a novice public speaker to … More an expert level at an affordable cost.
