Workshop Description

Does your heart race when you think about standing up to speak? Does the idea of a best man speech make you want to run to the nearest cave and hide? Do you see charismatic speakers and trainers and think, I could never do that? Must all your speeches be prepared in advance and written with precision?

If so, then this is the workshop for you!

I am very excited to be bringing this workshop to JCI Mayo. It is an intimate comfortable workshop and it was a sell out success in Dublin.

During this workshop, I will use my skills as a behavioural psychologist, mixed with all the tips & tricks I have learned about public speaking during my time in JCI to help you feel the fear and do it anyway.

Upon joining JCI in 2013, my legs would shake when I stood up to say even just my name in a group. Five short years later and I now speak off the cuff, with no shake in my legs or my voice to hundreds and frequently give seminars for JCI and my business. Public speaking and presenting has become so enjoyable for me and has opened so many doors. I now have a passion to give this skill to as many people as I can.

The workshop itself will be a very informal, flexible style, tailored to the participants needs, be that just getting your name out confidently or managing to tell the room about your favourite holiday destination, to maybe even delivering a three minute speech to the room on a topic gotten only fifteen minutes in advance.

Participants are encouraged to contact me in advance to let me know what they want to achieve on the day and over the coming months keira.keogh@gmail.com

I am very much looking forward to meeting you and helping you to accept this challenge.

Testimonial:

In just four short sessions, Keira helped me to do the impossible. From thinking I was going to mess up the speech or choke at the mic to delivering a five minute speech confidently with no notes. If she can do this for me, she can do it for anyone!
