Rich Watts works with charities across the UK, writing and delivering presentation skills training sessions that ensure their biggest presentations are a success.

Following a successful career in marketing, Rich became a charity presentation skills trainer after winning the UK Business Speaker of the Year competition in 2012. He now uses all of his geeky public speaking knowledge and experience to support good causes to find their voice.

How does Rich work with charitable organisations?

It all starts with a conversation. The key to developing successful charity presentation skills training is fully understanding the challenge that the speakers face, and the goals that they hope to achieve. From there, Rich uses all of his experience as a charity presentation skills trainer to develop a unique session designed to give your people the skills that they need to succeed.

The content of every session is completely unique. Over the past six months alone Rich has created and delivered courses on storytelling for leaders, persuading through emotion and presenting technical topics, to name but a few!

Why choose to work with Rich Public Speaking?

There are lots of reasons that charities choose Rich as their charity presentation skills 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 charities at a reduced daily rate of £1,500 per day of training (for groups of up to 8 people).

Who do we work with?

Our experience spans both charitable, higher education and corporate clients, a range of which you can see below.

What does our charity presentation skills 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!
