The Mindset for Speaking Success

1 day up to 6 participants

This module can only be taken in conjunction with earlier modules

You probably already know that helping your teams to improve their presentation skills confidence, to help them and your department or division to succeed in business is more than just training in skill sets. If it was that easy they would be super confident by now! Being a confident presenter is about ensuring the individuals in your teams have the right mindsets too.

Working with a highly experienced trainer, your teams will be coached using a blended approach in this tailored public-speaking course.

We will help your teams re-engineer their state of mind to achieve their presentation skills goals, leaving them fear-free with reduced stress levels and open to all sorts of new speaking opportunities from internal meetings to conference presentations.

By the end of the course, in addition to all the benefits of having taken the earlier programmes, delegates will be able to:

  • Have the right mindset to always be calm and confident speakers.
  • More easily implement the skill sets they’ve learnt.
  • Turn negative speaking habits into positive ones.
  • Inspire people with their presentations rather than just get through them.
  • Apply their new-found confidence to all areas of their life – not only to presenting.
  • Move their career forwards or put a long-term plan in place.
  • Either be neutral or actively enjoy giving presentations.

This multi-award-winning approach is for less confident presenters whose nerves are obviously or subtly impacting their presentations. They want to get to the root of the problem and improve their confidence. Before the course begins, delegates will receive Dee Clayton’s book, Taming Your Public Speaking Monkeys, and do some preparatory work.

Next, each participant will have a 1-hour coaching preparation call to discuss their issues around public speaking in more depth. This is all about us understanding their individual case and what symptoms they show so that they are comfortable and ready for their face-to-face training day.

In the training, we will tackle whatever is holding them back – so we’ll get to the root of the problem and get their mindset sorted.


Other delegates, after the training, tell how well their presentations have gone …

I was so, so looking forward to today, I got a few laughs and got my point across – I had some amazing feedback. I can’t believe how far I’ve come and if it weren’t for banishing the monkeys I would still be shying away! Thank you a million times to the moon and back! I have achieved things beyond my wildest dreams! Do not hesitate if you need help – fear can be conquered.

"I love it! "Bring it on"! Can you say that when you think about giving a presentation?

Dee’s presentation skills course was excellently received by the team. Every person who attended said they saw a huge difference in themselves and each other from the start of day 1 to the end of day 2. Dee’s 4MAT structure has also been hugely beneficial and is being used across the team, resulting in more concise presentations. Would highly recommend.

Before I worked with Simply Amazing Training, even the thought of presenting made me suffer from panic attacks and made me feel physically unwell. During the mindset mentoring session we uncovered the “monkeys” as Dee calls them, that were causing the issues and I learnt how to turn them into more positive thoughts instead. In another session, I learnt the tricks on the structure and preparing a presentation which gave me lots of practice which was just as well because only a few weeks later I presented at an all company conference … I felt so much better about it than I ever have before – my monkeys were under control.

I must say that making that first contact was a big step for me and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. The course is very well structured and the techniques learnt invaluable in addressing public speaking fears. We developed a good 1:1 relationship quickly. I no longer shy away from opportunities to run meetings and present updates, in fact, I have since done several types of presentations with great success. I have made a big step forward and I feel so much happier and better within myself. I am about to change role and it was my increased confidence gained from this course that gave me the impetus to seek out a different opportunity.

I decided I wanted to do motivational speaking, [The course] taught me how to structure a talk, what was my ethos, what I believed in, what were my core priorities in a talk … the things I needed to change I’ve changed … I’m happy with my talk. I thought it was full of energy, the reaction from the crowd was good [and I included] some of the key points suggested to help me so I’ve got no complaints. My confidence in how to structure a talk, how to be a speaker has grown and that’s just been working one to one.

After the Pro training, I felt very much happier, more confident and enthusiastic about my presentations. I know how to prepare and structure presentations. I know I can present well because I know how to adapt my message to what the audience wants. I now use less unnecessary hand gestures [and when I do use my hands it is for more meaningful gestures]. I am speaking more slowly and pausing more regularly [hence] less stuttering. I really liked the immediate feedback correcting me instantly.

The mindset course on ‘monkey taming’ is brilliant. For the first time, I was able to dedicate time to thinking about the things that were holding me back. The techniques and style make the ‘monkey taming’ process simple and effective, and allowed me to change my mindset.

In the Pro session, we worked on a presentation that I was to deliver at a big industry event – understanding how to get the key messages out, connect with the audience better and ultimately feel more at home ‘on stage’. I was extremely happy with my delivery and received some excellent feedback from the delegates at the conference.

Most presentation courses you come away thinking “that was great” and then forget it all… this one changes you, for the better, forever.

10/10 Better presentations! After seeing Dee speak at our annual conference I decided to sign up to her public speaking coaching lessons. I was not as confident as I’d liked to have been about preparing and delivering presentations. We tamed my ‘public speaking monkeys’ (as Dee calls them) and learnt advanced skills. Her unique approach really worked. I now feel much more confident, prepared and deliver clearer presentations. Highly recommended!

Operations Director – UK Serviced Offices Group

I took these programmes shortly before speaking at our annual conference and I had never spoken in public before. During the trainings, I learnt posture, better storytelling and how to speak with more pauses and less “ums”. We learnt how to present without even using PowerPoint and to easily remember what to say. Following the courses, I feel so much more prepared and clear and a lot less nervous. The conference talk went really well and everyone praised me on how well I’d done – I remembered everything I wanted to say without any slides at all.
