ESU’s Public Speaking Workshops

ESU's Public Speaking Workshops A group of St Martin's College Sixth Form students recently attended the ESU's Public Speaking Workshops. These students learned the skills and confidence to present themselves in a powerful and effective way. They learnt how to understand their fears or anxiety around speaking in public, and how to control them. They learned how to not just look confident but how to become more confident. They also learned how to have clear voices that make people sit up and listen to them speak. They are now more equipped to handle stressful situations like exams, class presentations, or speeches.
