Ditch The Nerves.
Develop Your Confidence.
Become A Powerful Public Speaker.

We’re looking for 6 ambitious professionals, managers, consultants, or business leaders to join us for a 1-day Masterclass in Public Speaking and Leadership Communication.

Are you like any of our other clients?

  • You’re great at what you do, but can’t seem to communicate your knowledge with confidence.

  • You start sentences with “so”, end sentences with “yeah”, or fill your sentences with “um” or “ah”.

  • Your speaking voice sounds too quiet, too monotone, or struggles to command a room.

  • You’ve had opportunities to speak, but you don’t know what to say or how to express your ideas.

    The best way to be noticed in your industry, your workplace, or even in the meeting room is to become a great public speaker.

A speaker is applauded by the workshop group.

But hang on...

Did a voice pop into your head and say
“I can’t do it…”? 

Maybe you feel like an imposter when you step on stage in front of an audience?

These are the reasons why most people never become great at public speaking.
But we’ve helped hundreds of professionals to do precisely that.

1-Day Masterclass (Manchester)

Over the past five years we've worked with:

  • Business owners, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs
  • TEDx speakers
  • Management consultants
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Sales professionals
  • Newly appointed managers
  • Senior Executives
  • Marketing Heads
  • Actors and Presenters

And many more types of people to help them experience the joy of feeling powerful in challenging circumstances.

We won’t just show you how to speak better – we will turn you into a Powerful Business Communicator.

A speaker builds authority through confident communication.
A speaker smiles and builds trust with the audience.

Powerful Business Communicators:

  • Are able to stay calm and perform under pressure.

  • Sound conversational: whether on stage, in a meeting, or face to face. 

  • Seem charming and friendly while powerful at the same time.

  • Use natural gestures and body language to emphasise key points. 

  • Use storytelling to weave words that ignites the imagination.

  • Speak with a clear and credible voice that engages people. 

  • Have found their authentic charisma and express it with ease.

Public Speaking is one of the most in-demand professional skills.
Enabling you to become more visible, valuable and connected.


Confident speakers seize opportunities that others miss. They express their ideas, share their story, and get others excited to work with them.


Visibility gives you value.
Speakers become known, liked and trusted in their field. They are seen as people with authority and expertise.


Speakers find offers and opportunities flow towards them. They become highly connected, sought after, and succesful.

A speaker pitches for his business.

How would your life and career improve if you could:

  • Hook your audience in and keep them engaged while you deliver your message?

  • Stay on point and eliminate mumbling and rambling?

  • Come across as confident even when you feel the butterflies in your stomach?

  • Release your mind from worry and organise your thoughts?

  • Assertively deal with distractions?

  • Lead a room with only your ideas and your voice?

  • Rid yourself of ‘imposter syndrome’ and begin expressing yourself authentically.

It's time to push through your comfort-zone and experience the joy of powerful speaking.

Join us for a transformative day of expert communication training.

What our previous attendees have said:

"Best decision I have ever made. Everyone there was so friendly. For someone as introverted and shy like myself, they made it very easy for me to come out of my shell.

I don't normally do reviews, but the day was fantastic. The course really did change how I feel abut presenting, while also improving my skills . Highly recommend Ed!"
Dominic Malloy
IT Manager
"I've recently attended a public speaking workshop with Project Charisma and I really couldn't fault any part of it. Well organised, professional, but still very personable.

Ed provided actionable feedback in a way that resonated with me. All around it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to work on developing their public speaking skills."
Orsolya Kiss-Toth

Ed was very helpful and gave me some useful coaching. I feel like I've now got the basic skills to talk in front of a crowd."
