Public Speaking Survival Guide in association with COR Collective (recommended by Shelf Help*)

  • COR Collective Herne Hill Road London, England United Kingdom (map)

Hands up if you love public speaking? Hello? Anyone?

Speaking in public is something most of us hate doing and I'm guessing something most of us would like to be better at?

Whether it's giving a presentation at work, a speech at a wedding, pitching an idea, or sometimes just even introducing ourselves to a new person or group, putting ourselves out there is HARD.

In researching how to get over herself and better at public speaking, Shelf Help founder Toni found (and completed) a brilliant course run by the COR Collective, three women who each have tales of overcoming public speaking meltdowns (panic attacks, forgetting lines in a one-woman show, crying during presentations, the lot!) to go on to actually ENJOY giving presentations! Yes, really!

Transform your fears about public speaking into excitement with this unique, empowering and resolutely non-corporate half-day workshop.

We love their approach and particularly the focus on the mind, and how to get to the bottom of why we fear speaking out, and how we can address that quickly and easily, in any situation.

What you will learn:

  • the basic essentials of body language and voice, including coaching from a voice coach expert on simple yet highly effective warm-up routines and professional techniques

  • more about our minds, calling upon crucial lessons from CBT, Mindfulness and NLP to help us manage anxieties around public speaking

  • a toolkit of tips for finding poise, presence and composure, anytime, anywhere

  • advice on how to apply all of the above in a variety of scenarios including meetings, conference calls, interviews, pitches, presentations and challenging conversations


  • Price: £200 to include a three-hour workshop and lunch

  • Location: COR Collective HQ, Herne Hill, South London

  • Why not kick-start 2019 with confidence, and bring along a friend for free?
    They are offering 2-for-1 on full day workshops, if booked before 31st January 2019.

COR Collective are an unconventional training school based in SE London that can help you to overcome your nerves, and to communicate confidently and authentically.
