Training With Doris


Practice Speaking In Front Of The Group –

There are unique and effective communication exercises that Doris Pickering’s public speaking classes offer that you won’t find anywhere else. Participants are able to get up in front of the group and practice all of the public speaking tips and educational content that was taught. Participating this way increases self-awareness and self-confidence quickly.

Students do not passively learn with Doris! They get involved and practice presentation skills in order to improve their public speaking – and have fun at the same time!

Watch Your Own Video Recordings

Another way Doris adds value is to record class participants and clients as they practice speaking. Most people are horrified with having to watch a recording of themselves speaking, but this is one of the fastest ways to learn what you really do – and how others perceive you – when you are giving a presentation!

Worksheets and personal recordings are provided for students so they can continue practicing at home.

Safe and Supportive Space –

Since so many individuals are uncomfortable speaking in front of groups, Doris Pickering’s classes provide a safe, supportive, and fun environment in order to learn the art of public speaking and how to get comfortable speaking in front of people. This helps students break through their barriers, stand up in front of the group and DO IT. The only way to become more self confident and effective is to practice practice practice!
