I recently enlisted the services of Speak Easy to enhance my near non-existent public speaking abilities, and I must say, it has been a true joy to work with Shona! From surprising vocal warm-ups to tackling terrifying improv routines, to receiving her detailed constructive critiques, Shona makes the journey of refining ones speaking skills both enjoyable, educational and fun. Fun Fact: Did you know Shona regularly graces stand-up comedy stages to ‘brush up’ on her skills? With over 30 years of experience, I am confident she can make YOU a better speaker as well.

Learning Professionals

I can say that this is the BEST program I have ever attended – and I have attended a LOT of programs in my career. It’s not just about speaking – it’s about social skills, how to deal with others in the workplace. When I joined [the speaking program], I was thinking I was good enough because I’ve done a lot of presentations… Fear is natural, and thanks to our excellent instructors, they are training us specifically how to feel the fear – and be the King of the Moment! Just take it!

Shona and her team are just amazing to work with – flexible, responsive, creative, professional. I have hired her to design numerous training programs in communications and public speaking. Participants not only love her, they learn practical skills they can apply in the workplace.

Shona is an amazing speaker that helped make my 10th Anniversary conference a success with her ability to engage the audience and get our show started with a great motivational speech.

Professional Event Organizer

We thought that public speaking was a skill you either had it or you don’t. During the program, we saw people who could barely put a few words together in front of a small audience… and now we are all able to deliver a speech that is clear, persuasive and to the point.

My first day, I was so anxious and stressed. I thought, ‘What have I got myself into?’ Day after day, I became less stressed with the amount of impromptu peaking we got to do. Now I can I say I am relaxed, confident and thrilled.

The program breaks all the rules that we’re used to in other courses! The opportunity we had to learn from professionals, to move around the stage, and use our voice effectively were amazing. These are important soft skills we all need to learn. You’re representing leadership, so you learn how to communicate with your staff, and take messages from leadership and communicate them effectively to the working staff.

Once you enter, and once you leave the program, you are a totally different person. After the program, I had an enormous amount of confidence in speaking to everyone and also constructing a strong message.
