CONFIDENT SPEAKING AND COMMUNICATION 5 WEEK PROGRAM

This workshops always fills quickly! Don't miss out on the early bird price.

New Workshops being announced soon.

STUDIES AS RECENTLY AS 2020 HAVE REVEALED THESE STAGGERING STATISTICS.

👉 A whopping 77% of the adult population feel some level of anxiety toward public speaking.

👉 Females represent 2/3rds of the 77%, ie 2 females to one male

👉 Fear of Public Speaking impairs wages and promotions by 10% and 15% respectively

BUT UNBELIEVABLY

👉 Only 8% of those who fear public speaking seek professional help DESPITE the documented negative impact on their career and wages!

The kicker is, most of us have to overcome it at some point and interestingly, the workforce finds value in public speaking with 70% of employees declaring compelling presentation as a vital skill to succeed.

Not only that but if you are a coach, expert or course creator, one of the best ways to build your authority and position yourself as a trusted thought leader people turn to is to speak in public.

It’s no coincidence that successful managers and strong leaders are excellent communicators.

Do You:

  • Suffer from nerves and anxiety?
  • Have to present at your work to superiors, colleagues or clients?
  • Often feel like ‘I wish I could be more confident when presenting?
  • Feel like you mumbled and stumbled your way through?
  • Avoid speaking up at work or in meetings because you’re overcome with fear and anxiety?
  • Have trouble explaining your views and ideas?
  • Lack confidence or have low self-esteem?
  • Avoid networking?
  • Struggle to make or maintain conversation?
  • Struggle to provide a coherent, cogent response when you’re put on the spot

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THESE THEN THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!

This interactive and educational workshop is designed to help YOU improve and master the art of Public Speaking and Communication.

WHAT WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS AND CLIENTS SAY:

“I recently attended Con’s ‘Confident Speaking and Communication’ course.   I found it to be the most practical and pragmatic professional development course that I have attended till date. The structure and delivery were fantastic and so was Con’s passion and enthusiasm. The focus was on ” learning by doing” in a very comfortable environment rather than didactic lecturing. The improvement I found over the five week course was just great. Thanks Con.”

Sunil P.R, Orthopaedic Surgeon

“Thought I’d let you know that I had to present to a jury today for an AIA award submission.  I successfully pulled through it by applying all the skills you taught me.  It was so invigorating!!  Would not have been able to do it without you.  Thank you!

Sarah G, Senior Corporate Business Development Manager

“Con, I have to thank you. I had to re-film my Masterclass for my business and do 5 videos for my challenge funnel and I wouldn’t of had the confidence to do it if it wasn’t for your help last year.

Kallie K, Entrepreneur and Founder of KK Nutrition

“Having seen Con speak on many occasions over the last few years, I have to share how fantastic he is. He is so passionate about wanting to see others succeed and delivers his message with clarity and a touch of humor that makes learning enjoyable. Con creates a comfort in the room, where everyone feel safe to share, which really makes you get the most out of what you are learning.

"I have participated in numerous self-development courses led by esteemed mentors, and I can confidently say that Con stands out as an exceptional mentor I have had the privilege of learning from. During my Speaking and Communication Coaching and Training course , Con imparted a profound insight to me, emphasizing that I hold an obligation to share my knowledge with others. This statement resonated deeply with me and served as a powerful source of inspiration. Encouraged by Con's words, I have continued my personal growth journey through his one-on-one coaching sessions. Con's belief in my potential, coupled with his genuine passion for his work, sets him apart as a remarkable teacher and mentor. His dedication to empowering others is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly endorse Con's coaching and guidance to anyone seeking transformative personal development. Thank you, Con, for your invaluable support 🤝🏽

If you're looking to improve your communication skills, I highly recommend Con's course. My initial goal was to boost my confidence in speaking and better understand audience psychology. However, what I didn't anticipate was the personal insights and increased self-awareness that occurred during the course. Understanding more about yourself, your 'blocks' and mindset inadvertently transforms your communication abilities—not only in public forums but also on a personal and relational level. Con's genuine, authentic, kind approach to teaching, his professionalism in presentation and the open, safe forum he facilitates was such a great experience for growth in more ways than just public speaking. It was one of the best investment I've participated in for some time for personal development. Thanks Con!

I completed the Confident Speaking and Communication workshop which I attended to improve on my presentation skills. Con took the time to provide valuable constructive feedback on my strengths and areas of improvement required and to pinpoint specific areas where I could grow as a presenter. The workshop allowed me to interact with other participants as well and by the end, I felt much more confident in my ability to deliver engaging and impactful presentations and have a new found level of confidence in my approach to public speaking. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to enhance their presentation skills.

Incredible! I THOUGHT I would always have a fear of speaking in public. Going red, getting lost for words, feeling nervous... I signed up to Cons workshop because I knew I needed to improve on my confidence when speaking at work in meetings, while networking and eventually in front of large crowds as a public speaker. I wanted to be ahead of the game. There was nothing that I explained to Con that he didn't understand or that he hasnt seen before. He could ALWAYS provide a strategy or a way around my fear or the challenge I was facing in relation to communication. The workshops not only allowed me to improve, but they also allowed me to build relationships with some really supportive and like-minded people. Con walks the walk and talks the talk. He is genuine, a great communicator, and truly enjoys mentoring in this space and watching his students grow. I highly recommend Con if you are considering a course or mentoring for confidence and public speaking. It was a wonderful experience and I now have the tools and skills to further develope my career.

I recently attended Con’s Confident Speaking and Communication workshop. In five weeks, I gained more confidence and skills than I did in months of attending other public speaking courses. Impressed by the workshop, I decided to continue my development through one-on-one coaching with Con. Not that long ago I was super nervous when I spoke in front of large audiences and delivered presentations at work. With Con’s guidance and practical tips, I now feel so much more confident and comfortable doing these. Con is passionate and holds me accountable while remaining exceptionally accommodating. Con ensures that the coaching is tailored to my schedule and commitments. This flexibility has been crucial in maximising the benefits of the coaching sessions. I highly recommend Con’s programs to anyone seeking not only to enhance their communication skills, but also to unlock new opportunities for personal and professional growth. It is one of the best investments I have made in myself. Thank you so much Con!

I recently had the pleasure of attending several workshops and public speaking engagements led by Con, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed! His ability to captivate an audience and communicate complex ideas with ease is remarkable. Not only did he engage us with his dynamic presentation skills, but he also provided valuable insights and techniques that have significantly improved my own speaking abilities. His personalized approach to training ensures that everyone, regardless of their experience level, walks away with newfound confidence and skills. I highly recommend Con to anyone looking to elevate their public speaking. His expertise and charismatic approach truly deserve a 5-star rating!

I can highly recommend Con's Confident Speaking and Communication course. I felt it challenged me, gave me great feedback and enlightened me on techniques confident and professional speakers use. Con taught me how to structure a presentation and how important body language is. I will be undertaking more training in the near future. Thanks Con.

I am delighted to share my experience working with Con Koutsikas - Communicate with Confidence , who served as the MC for my Innovate Adelaide launch event. Con demonstrated exceptional consideration in every aspect of event planning, showcasing remarkable patience, expertise, and calmness in the lead-up to the launch. Given the significance of the moment and the high stakes involved, Con instinctively adopted the right approach. His thoroughness resulted in an incredibly seamless event, and the feedback I received was outstanding. Con's demeanour was characterised by calmness, a perfect balance of humour, impeccable timing, respectfulness, and exceptional organisation – qualities that define a consummate professional. Having Con as the MC undoubtedly enhanced the overall quality of my event, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Whether as an MC or for delivering communication and presentation skills training, Con is truly exceptional. Reach out to Con today to secure him for your next event.

Con delivered his Effective Public Speaking course to the staff at Mates in Construction SA in 4 x 3 hour sessions. He tailored the sessions to suit our needs and we have noticed the benefits almost immediately. The staff picked up some great presentation skills and learned how to structure and continually evaluate our training sessions. It was also fun and a real team building exercise. We would happily recommend his services.

I attended Con's amazing magnetic learning class in July 2023. Amazing learning techniques. This 5 effective days workshop takes you into another level giving you a direction for accepting criticism and compliments. This workshop was an eye-opening experience, both personally and professionally. Extremely impactful. I will continue to draw upon the skills I learned in this workshop for years to come and grow further with confidence. Every session you deliver a speech with conviction and better your learning. I appreciated all the speech evaluations done with clarity of improvements given to me. CON is a great leader and teacher, demonstrating the strategies of effective communication and public speaking throughout his facilitation and execution. This workshop allowed me to gain skills to handle crucial conversations more effectively and safely. I would recommend this class to anyone that is looking for ways to strengthen their communications skills on all levels.

I attended Con's workshop to improve my public speaking ability and be able to communicate more clearly. I learnt to slow down, have less umms and be more impactful. At my first public speaking event following Con's course I was approached by 3 different people after my talk who complimented me by telling me that it resonated with their own personal experience and they found it inspiring. Great feedback!!! Thanks Con for your enthusiasm for a topic which many of us find difficult.

Con is an expert facilitator in public speaking and I would recommend his services to anyone looking to gain the skills and confidence to speak in public or just improve your impromptu speaking skills. Con's personable approach supports you to understand your own behaviour and how to improve the small things that make a big difference in speaking confidently. I cannot recommend his speaking course highly enough it is well worth the investment.

I recently completed an online Confident Speaking and Communication course with Con Koutsikas. I found the course content valuable and relevant to me and my business. Con is an experienced speaker and coach. His skills, care and attention to detail is evident in the way he presents his material and engages with all workshop participants. I gain a range of new skills and abilities through my participation and was able to gain feedback and valuable insights into my own speaking along the way. I would highly recommend Con Koutsikas to anyone who is looking to improve their communication for work, social or professional purposes.

Absolutely loved this course. It has honed my public speaking skills and communication skills. I feel growth that I have experience in a short period of time has been enormous. Con is a very passionate teacher and that comes across in his workshops. He is not afraid to hold you accountable and really push you out of your comfort zone so you experience the most amount of growth in a short period of time.
