Our Story

Imagine starting a new leadership post and being expected to be instantly confident in your group presentations. This assumption was the frustration and the common denominator that connected all our company founders on their own business and career journeys. The frustration of being given a leadership title with an assumptive expectation to speak “like a leader” in the absence of real transformational training.

Billal Jamil, Anthony Mercer, and Lee Furness, like many emerging leaders, encountered this daunting gap in their separate careers and business journeys. They were united by a deep realisation that most existing presentation training remains a box-ticking exercise that does not shift the Mindset, Speaking Skillset, and the required identity shift to build the skill to speak with impact and confidence.

United by a shared experience, Billal, Anthony, and Lee fused learnings from multiple disciplines to co-create a new methodology. This new methodology would rewrite the speaking approach and belief system of many leaders across the world.

A set of coaching methods that continue to help build and hone the speaking skills of 1000s of new leaders. Enabling the unlocking of career potential, communication, and personal confidence to present with impact and authentic connection.

At Public Speaking Academy we fuse Speaking Delivery Skills with Confident Mindset Transformation to enable your journey to Leadership impact. The Public Speaking Academy over its 15-year history continues to be driven by the desire to bridge the speaking confidence gap.

The “speaking valley of death” was the birthplace of the Public Speaking Academy Methods that are proven catalysts for change, propelling us to be amongst the world’s leading leadership and communication training companies.
