Ingrid Caceres, Manager, ILS Department at The Walt Disney Company“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! ”
Vladimir Jirasek, Hertfordshire“Having lived in England for 11 years my English is good, yet I had had the feeling people struggle to understand me sometimes. Put simply, I had not been articulating clearly. I had contacted Jude and we set on a journey to get my English into shape. Now I feel way more confident, and crucially, people understand me much better. ”

Do you struggle to find the right words in meetings or pitches? Find it hard to communicate clearly and efficiently or do nerves get the best of you? Come and find out what your communication habits are and pin point which areas you need to improve on to have a greater impact and engage with your audience.
We provide a bespoke workshop tailored to the delegates attending, looking at their needs and adapting the session accordingly. Learning is not about humiliating someone so they don't make the same mistake twice. Delegates are asked to participate and will also be filmed allowing them to evaluate themselves after the session or talk through their technique in a one to one. We believe that success in speaking can be gained by practise and confidence. We don't claim to have a box of secrets and techniques to turn you into the next great orator but instead believe that with the right help and encouragement (taking you through important skills surrounding communication whilst giving you the opportunity to conquer your fears) you will finish feeling happier, more confident, less tongue tied and ready to face the masses (or your colleagues!).
Elaine Derbyshire, HR Learning & Development Officer, HelpAge International“I thoroughly enjoyed the communications skills workshop with Jude. She was very professional, organised and is clearly committed to her work. I really liked the mix of theoretical information about public speaking that she provided and the opportunities we had to practise the skills we learnt throughout the day. For anyone wanting to improve their communications skills, I would definitely recommend Jude and Speaking Works.”
Lucy, St Albans“I found your help invaluable as any training I’ve had in the past has concentrated on content rather than on how to actually speak…your help with my breathing and projection made me realise how much more breath I have and allowed me to slow my breathing rate, which really helped with nerves as well as giving me the energy in my voice to engage with the whole room. I would almost go so far as to say I enjoyed myself and I certainly feel much more confident about going on to speak at other events, now that I feel that I have an understanding of the techniques you taught me.”
