Communications Training | Speech and Drama Workshops

What do we do?

Speaking Works was launched in the summer of 2012 to provide essential communications training for children and adults. Speaking Works is about providing children and adults with life-long communication skills. Strong interpersonal skills are vital for everyone, not just the budding actor or public speaker.



Learn and practise in non-threatening, inspiring workshops with Speaking Works. Effective, confident communication skills are being recognised as increasingly important in today's ever changing, business and educational landscapes. Such skills can help us succeed in an interview, build relationships, or give confidence to excel in the delivery of that vital presentation. Many take these skills for granted whilst they confidently address clients and colleagues or effortlessly pitch products and ideas but others may be halted on the career ladder as they struggle to communicate effectively.



Learn and gain confidence working from page to stage through play and drama in a supportive, fun environment. Most importantly we run SMALL classes to allow for individual attention. Pupils can also prepare for LAMDA examinations in both Communication and Performance. We provide the opportunity to learn the 'technical' soft and hard skills needed to be an engaging speaker. Students are taught specific performance techniques required to succeed in LAMDA examinations up to Gold medal. Often children don't ge enough opportunities to explore and practice vital communication and performance skills which is why Speaking Works offers just that! 

Who are we? MEET THE TEAM

Children’s communication is about so much more than being able to answer a question in class or tell your parents what you did in school. The ability to communicate is central to who we are, how we learn, and what we do in our lives.

Thank you for a great workshop!It was fun, interesting, engaging, a great atmosphere and it reassured all of us and gave individual skills and points to work on!

Gavin Haines, London Journalist

Though I have never been particularly afraid of public speaking, my thoughts – and consequently my delivery – often became chaotic when I was speaking in front of lots of people. However, Jude has brought ballast to the madness, helping me with everything from nerve management to posture. Speaking Works works.
