• Whether you’re a novice or experienced speaker, this training will take you to the next level. Make your next presentation your best!

The Confident Speaker (TCS) private coaching is ideal for the person who wants to focus on a specific upcoming communication; on bringing professional meetings to more successful conclusions; or simply on overcoming a fear of speaking in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Private coaching sessions typically run one hour. Initial training concentrates on speech organization as well as delivery. Attention is paid to crafting an opening “hook” to immediately capture audience attention; a clear body with smooth transitions; and a compelling wrap-up/call to action. Delivery coaching instills techniques of voice and body language to heighten impact.

One doesn’t become a better speaker after just one lesson. Mastery takes practice. Multiple sessions are recommended to cement progress and empower clients to consistently speak with confidence and authority.

I have had the pleasure of attending two presentations by Richard on public speaking, in particular public speaking for lawyers. He brings his expertise from theater and acting to the courtroom, boardroom and much more. He breaks down the elements of confident speaking to presence, creating rapport with the audience, and storytelling. He doesn't just throw information at you, he makes you practice with exercises and drills. Do you want to be taken seriously when you speak? Have you heard yourself talk or video recorded yourself? Where are your hands? Where are your eyes? It matters. Richard helps with all this and more. Definitely reach out and begin mastering public speaking. With his help, I have become cognizant of my posture demeanor, pitch and other areas I took for granted.

As an attorney, I'm trained to speak in front of judges and juries, and I have years of experience in the courtroom. However, I have less experience in other public speaking venues, so I worked with Richard to improve in those areas. Richard helped me prepare for speaking engagements that I do on behalf of my business. He shared techniques with me that I simply didn't know before working with him: how to move around the room with intention; where to look; how to engage the audience; and how to prepare interesting visuals. Based on my work with Richard I know my speaking engagements are more interesting, professional, and engaging. I highly recommend The Confident Speaker.

I recently engaged Richard Bannin as a Communications Consultant to bring my public speaking to the next level and I cannot recommend him more highly! I have known Richard through Toastmasters and I have always been impressed how he speaks with confidence and poise. Richard brings to The Confident Speaker a unique and dynamic combination of talents and credentials, including his seasoned business presentation skills, his professional/degreed theatre training, and his extensive Toastmasters experience. Both as a speaker and as a coach he is as good as it gets. I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone who wants to improve their public speaking skills, whether for professional or personal reasons!

I worked with Richard in 2016 when I launched my online Marketing business, EmPower Media. Richard was patient and constructive while we perfected my elevator pitch. Due to his drama background and professional experience he makes an extraordinary coach.
Richard really cares about his clients and wants to make improvements in short amounts of time. He is not afraid to tell you how it is. Hire him if you want to improve your business, your life and your public and personal speaking skills.

Richard is a consummate professional in the field of public speaking and I consider myself extremely lucky to have come across his workshops. Not only has he helped me become more comfortable when speaking in front of audiences, but has taught me valuable lessons about structuring my speeches, making good use of body language and developing a more powerful speaking voice. At each workshop he immediately identified my weak points and gave me excellent suggestions on how to correct them. I've attended three workshops so far this year and intend to take part in many more!
