Big Speeches

Big Speeches uses the tools of actor training and the performer/audience relationship to increase your confidence, up your presentation game and access the charisma you possess to take your space in any room.

Actors often find themselves in interview scenarios more than any other profession. How to engage one-on-one is just as vital to their career as the ability to hold the attention of hundreds onstage. But the skill-set remains the same; active listening, a body that is comfortable in its space and surroundings, a commanding supple voice as well as clarity in thought and diction.

I’m thrilled to announce we are bringing Big Speeches to you! From the comfort of your home you can take our short course of three sessions over three weeks that will boost your confidence and help you take your space in any room. As always we work with the breath, the body and the voice but we are also asking new questions…  How can we be charismatic online? How do we build or restore confidence after these unprecedented times? How do we engage with people in space again without fear? Sessions will include an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow Guilty Feminists before the session starts and a Q and A at the end so that you can always ask me directly about your own personal challenges.

We are teaching the course on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings for flexibility. Pick the slot will suit you for those three weeks – just Tuesdays or just Saturdays – and we will see you there!

Any materials and information you need will be emailed before each session. Each session will be taught on Zoom by me, Jessica Regan and supported by fellow RADA alumni actor and facilitator extraordinaire Syrus Lowe.

ONLINE WORKSHOPS VIA ZOOM: Tuesdays from 8 September at 7:00pm OR Saturdays from 12 September at 11:00am. Each workshop lasts for two hours.

Whether you are someone who fills with fear at the idea of speaking in front of people or you are totally comfortable and just looking to improve or indeed if you have done Big Speeches and you would like to refresh or top up your skills this is the surprising, challenging and ultimately joy-filled course for you.

It’s your time. Take the stage.
