Why choose to work with Rich Public Speaking?

There are lots of reasons that organisations across the country choose Rich as their business presentation trainer, but over the years three clear themes have emerged:



As a subject matter expert rather than a generic trainer, clients love the depth of knowledge and experience that Rich brings to every training session.


Our clients recognise that they achieve greater results because the training is tailored to their people and their exact needs. No off-the-shelf courses here!


We deliver presentation skills training for businesses at a daily rate of £1,900 per day of training (for groups of up to 8 people).

Plus… apparently Rich has a warm, supportive and engaging manner when delivering training - but we will let you judge that for yourself on the day!

What does our business presentation training include?

An initial scoping meeting to understand your requirements

We will meet you either online or in person to fully understand the goals that you need to achieve through presentations and public speaking. We will listen, ask questions and share ideas to ensure that we can produce the ideal presentation skills training solution for your business.

Course content tailored specifically to your team

All of our courses are tailored to the individuals involved within each session. The content and examples used will vary depending on the existing skill level and confidence of each participant. We will even contact all participants before the session to understand their ambitions and any particular areas that they would like us to focus on.

Workbooks and access to exclusive support content for all attendees

All attendees will be provided with a unique workbook during the session. Afterwards they will have access to all recordings from the training, as well as a library of Rich Public Speaking resources to use as they practice their public speaking throughout the year.

An online follow-up session after the training

All attendees will be entitled to an hour-long follow up session after the training. This is their opportunity to report back on progress, ask questions and receive additional feedback and training now that they have had the chance to practice what they have learned!

A specialised training venue

Some organisations prefer that the training is delivered offsite in a centralised or specialist training venue. We have access to a network of suitable sites across the country and can provide a venue to suit your specific needs. Some organisations have even asked us to create multi-day team training sessions, with over night stays and evening entertainment!

He believes that if we can develop public speaking skills early on in life, then our likelihood of success both in education and in our future careers will be greatly increased; those that have the ability to communicate their great ideas, are those that change the world.
