We’ve Worked With…

Financial Times Case Study

We have delivered a series of communication skills workshops for the Financial Times to help with both internal communication and to help staff feel more confident delivering reports on Facebook Lives to their customer base online.

Our client asked us to provide tailored FB Live presentation training that would address the challenges staff may face.

Key areas covered included:

  • Preparing to speak on the spot
  • Delivering information in a compelling and confident manner
  • Managing pre-presentation panic
  • Thinking Clearly during a presentation
  • Making more impact

We delivered sessions over a 3 month period with a mix of full and half day workshops. All individuals were given both practice and delivery opportunities with precise feedback which has helped them to develop their FB live techniques, but also increase their communication impact and overall confidence.

Client Feedback

“Absolutely amazing programme – that gave you techniques but also lots of practice and feedback space”

“I came in unsure but left feeling I had a few tools up by sleeve, will be applying to do more presenting”

“I currently just present to my team but now will go for cross department presentations more and open myself up to working as wider representative of the organisation”

“The course was fun, energetic and inclusive. We had a range of abilities in the room – Billal was able to bring the best out of everyone and maintain a very high level of engagement throughout”


Synectics Solutions Case Study

We have delivered a series of High Impact Speaking Workshops for senior leaders at Synectics to help them promote their work better externally.

Business Relationship Managers needed to engage potential clients and articulate their extensive value proposition in a way that would gain better results and build higher levels of engagement.

We needed to help key staff members with a range of challenges including:

  • Building more engagement at conference
  • Being able to convey complex ideas in a simple and memorable way
  • Speaking without slides and notes
  • Entertaining and engaging a conservative business crowd
  • Building an effective toolkit to meet a diverse audience
  • Gain more presenting impact

The programme delivered a range of sessions of variable sizes, intensity levels and duration over a 6 months period.

Team members and leaders were given lots of opportunity to practice, improve, learn and have fun.

The practical approach meant lots of people were able to implement their learning almost immediately and affect the communication culture in the wider teams.

Client Feedback

“This course genuinely was one of the the most professional and hard-hitting courses I have been on. You learn so many smart techniques – there was literally a buzz in the office every time the Public Speaking Academy would visit us”

“Being able to play on the big stage really is a craft. I have always seen ‘others’ play that role on the conference stage. I now feel ready to mix it with the big boys!”

“Translating what we do into a presentation is our greatest challenge. Learning the methods to build a compelling structure along with the confidence to say it was possibly the biggest shift I have seen in every attendee”

“You can understand why these guys train Question Time panelists!”
