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.

We begin by warming up the breath, the body and the voice. We engage with text that will allow you to access your inner leading actor. Engaging with your creativity and imagination you can have the starring role on any platform, in any boardroom.

It’s your time. Take the stage.

“Had a fantastic day… If you’re a (feminist) woman or non-binary person who wants to work on being able to occupy space, to use your voice and make yourself hear, this is a fantastic chance to do so.” – Reubs Walsh

“Totally inspiring day learning about ‘Big Speeches’ from the brilliant Jessica Regan. Challenging but warm and encouraging, what else would you expect from the supportive Guilty Feminist community? Book on the next one!” – Pauline Stobbs

“If you’re thinking about doing a Big Speeches workshop, Stop thinking. Book. Just did it. Feel stronger, louder, prouder. Who wouldn’t want that.” – Amy Beashel

“I saw magic happen today. If you’re in the UK and want to build confidence in public speaking sign up for the Big Speeches workshop… (it) will make your vulnerability feel like an essential tool” – Lauren Meckel
