Academy of Speakers


The Academy of Speakers was established with the intention of building the next generation of leaders. Having trained thousands of corporate executives in areas of increasing confidence, enhancing resilience and captivating audiences, the founders of Academy of Speakers found that many had not learnt these skills through their education.

It was also found that many students did not have these skills and learning these skills at an early age would have benefited them not just academically but also socially. The Academy of Speakers teaches public speaking but more importantly, helps students build resilience, gain confidence and enhance influencing skills.
