one-day confident conversation


The Confident Conversation Course has been designed specifically for those who lack self-assurance in social situations.

It is has been proven that we make up our minds about someone within the first seven seconds of meeting them. Whilst we may feel this is unfair, it is unfortunately the way human beings are designed; it acts as a protection mechanism against perceived danger.

Meeting new people should be an enjoyable experience, but for so many people it is a stressful time and one that can trigger severe social anxiety resulting in a mental freeze or, on the other end of the spectrum, a rambling stream of chit-chat in an attempt to overcome nerves.

This course will coach you through the process of understanding your blockages and it will equip you with useful skills on how to overcome them. You will then learn how to prepare for an important event and finally the delivery of confident conversation for both one-on-one and group scenarios.

You will be presented with a framed certificate on completion of the course, along with notes to keep and refer back to in the future.
