Calling the next generation of exceptional speakers…

The Exceptional Speaker Masterclass – online:

Do you want to know exactly how to: –


You can be an exceptional speaker soon                 – with our help!

An exceptional speech never, ever happens by accident, even though it may appear so. It is always the result of a delicate combination of trial and error, intensive coaching and ultimately experience. Just as exceptional sports people always have a great coach close at hand, so too do exceptional speakers.

Great speeches may be written in just a few days – but the delivery is ultimately what makes them great. That ability may take years of experience to hone – but now you can expedite this learning curve significantly. If you have the message, we’ll help you bring it to life.

Having listened to hundreds of speakers and studied many of the world’s greatest speeches, the workshop facilitators and co-authors,


Alan Stevens and Paul du Toit, themselves both decorated professional speakers, have identified exactly what it takes to speak with conviction, clarity and pizzaz.  By gently guiding and coaching you they’re ready to share it with you.

If you wish to take your personal speaking skills to an extraordinary level, The Exceptional Speaker Masterclass is available to you. In this powerful one-day session hosted by both co-authors of The Exceptional Speaker you will learn how to plan, structure and deliver sensational speeches with energy and passion.

But don’t take our word for it – scroll down and listen to as our past delegates share their personal experience of participating in The Exceptional Speaker Masterclass.
