I've been working with people who don't like public speaking since 2000 and full time since 2009.
I now run 50 courses a year in Bristol, Manchester and London (soon to be in Birmingham too) so its fairly hectic and makes me one of the busiest faciltators in Europe. That's because I'm passionate about helping people overcome their fear so that they can get on with doing things they want to do in life.  I run one, two day courses which are all about understanding the fear, and learning the new skills we need to be effective speakers. I also run a two day course to help people re-think presentations
I'm also on the European Leadership Development Group and an adviser to Speaking Circles International. I  help with the training of UK Facilitators
Whilst most of my courses are open to anyone I run a series of in-house courses for Severn Deanery (NHS consultants), Soil Association, Schools and Sodexo and other organisations throughout the year.
My website gives you lots more information but I'm also very happy to chat to you if you want to explore what a speaking circle course will do for you
some feedback
"For me, the course was life changing. I could never have anticipated that it would have the effect that it did. I have substantially lost the consuming self-critical and self-conscious disposition I had before. I can't thank you enough. The method / approach was incrediby effective"
The results far exceeded what I had expected and I would recommend anybody who has concerns about public speaking to go on Johns’ course.
It was one of the best courses I have ever been on.


Thanks again John - I really feel your course is one of the best I have ever been on for any subject and I have been on a lot of courses over the years!
Very best wishes
