Feedback from Inner West Council for our
Public Speaking for Teens Workshop
"Kathy delivered a workshop on the power to speak up to a group of students, as part of a youth mentoring program I help deliver. Her role was to encourage students (with the support of their mentors) to find their potential and voice. The workshop was wonderfully structured and I was amazed by how much the students gained in such a short amount of time. Kathy is an amazing teacher with a marvellous presence, I was really pleased at how flexible and adaptable she was with the group of students who immediately responded to her teaching style. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to run a public speaking workshop, you will not be disappointed!"

Feedback from Public Speaking with Confidence Course, August 2016
"The prepared speeches were the most realistic situations for my line of work and most useful/ beneficial for me. The impromptu speaking was the most challenging as it forced me to structure my thoughts more quickly. Experience of speaking infront of a group & advice on the skill when it could be improved was what I liked most about the experience. Speaking Connections provide a fantastic, practical advice to improve speaking that can be used daily."

Feedback from One to One Coaching
"Speaking Connections has helped me profusely. I have completed two degrees at University and throughout those 8 years I did not learn anywhere near what Kathy has taught me about public speaking. I came to Kathy wanting to learn how to gain confidence in speaking and how to present. Whether it be to a group of people or even as simple as a conversation with somebody else. Over the course of my one to one coaching sessions with her, I can honestly say that the skills I have learnt about projection, body movement, tone and conquering fear have improved immensely. Although I may not present to a large group of people many times in my life I truly feel that I am
equipped with the tools that not only help me in my line of work but in general life situations. I cannot thank Speaking Connections enough for what they have done for me."
