Our Accredited Courses
Are you having problems with communication throughout the team? Is your retention rate pitiful? Do you struggle to command a room and take charge of a situation? Are your clients leaving you in droves because you can’t close deals adequately? Is your leadership hierarchy fundamentally broken, either through infighting or dysfunctionality?
The Speakers’ Gym™ can help to resolve these issues with attendance at one or more of our three accredited courses. In our accredited course, our behavioural and communication experts, coaches, and business thought leaders will provide you with 1:1 tuition and group masterclasses to bring out the very best in you and your team.
Accelerated Leaders Academy: Leadership Development
Planning for the future of your company is just as important as making sure that the here and now is running like clockwork. Our Accelerated Leaders Academy is a proactive approach to nurturing the leaders of the future while also addressing any current issues that may be holding your people and your business back.
Our Academy course will not only improve your work culture, encourage people to rise through the ranks and inspire them to bring fresh, new ideas to the table, but it helps to form a cohesive all-for-one-and-one-for-all mentality while still giving individuals the breathing space to develop their own personal targets but, crucially, not to the detriment of others.
Our Accelerated Leaders Academy has yielded incredible real-world results, with clients praising improved morale, the confidence to be more open about their goals, and challenging the established way of working to be positively disruptive.

Our 4-Part Bespoke Public Speaking Coaching
Public Speaking remains one of the biggest fears for people within business. In many cases, it can be a huge block to career advancement and people realising their full potential at work. Working closely with your public speaking expert coach, we’ll use our tried and tested, 4-part programme to serve your unique needs, helping you to connect, build trust and inspire.
This executive training course is designed to help people in positions of authority to find their authentic voice.

Speak, Listen: Act Academy: Business Communication
Ineffective communication can sound the death knell for any organisation. The business world is littered with examples of once-thriving companies whose day has long since passed when they could still be a force to be reckoned with – and all because they didn’t communicate effectively.
Working with our behavioural consultants, our “Speak, Listen: Act” Academy will take a systematic approach to get to the core of your communication issues and rebuild those broken lines of communication to bring functionality back to the team.
The real-world scenarios that benefit from improved communication are endless; everything from improved staff retention to new-found confidence, to a business that runs more smoothly than it ever has before.

Advanced Team Communication Training
Are you ready to take your team’s communication to the next level? We believe that sometimes the best way to move forward is by taking a step back and revisiting the basics. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our new course on Advanced Team Communication training.
Enrolling on our advanced team communication course, we’ll help you gain a deep understanding of how communication works and why it’s crucial for achieving exceptional results in your team and business. You’ll learn effective communication strategies that can transform your team’s dynamics and productivity.
Whether you’re in a leadership role or an individual contributor, this course will equip you with the tools you need to lead your team to success. Get ready to take your communication skills to new heights with our Advanced Team Communication training!
The three courses above are our ‘off-the-shelf’ business communication courses, and they have produced exceptional results. However, we realise that problems within businesses are as unique as the people that run them, and, sometimes, the ‘off-the-shelf’ approach just won’t work.
That’s why, in addition to these fantastic courses, we offer a completely bespoke option. Our bespoke courses use everything that we’ve learned from our three decades in acting and elite sports and apply it to business-focused solutions. If you feel like you and your company would benefit more from this tailor-made approach, then we’d be only too happy to discuss this with you.
Executive Coaching FAQs
We understand that you may have a few questions about taking part in courses that will radically alter how you act and will have an effect on your business – even if that change is extremely positive. Change is scary, but we’ll answer a few of the most popular questions here to try and put you at ease.
How do you do executive training?
Our executive training courses can take a few forms. One-to-one tuition is a major part of executive training, but we also run masterclasses where you’ll take part in group tasks so that you’re comfortable in both scenarios once you leave the confines of The Speakers’ Gym™ Academy.
What is taught in leadership training?
In leadership training, we first focus on what problems you or your organisation currently face and then double down on how we can solve them. You’ll learn how to be an effective leader and inspire confidence in your team by reversing these issues.
What are the benefits of an executive leadership program?
The benefits of taking part in an executive leadership program are many. You’ll gain confidence, feel more secure within yourself, safeguard your company’s future, and learn resilience, but most important of all, you’ll learn all of this and be happier for it.
How do you train for public speaking?
You’ll train for public speaking by working with our expert behavioural consultant. They’ll create a bespoke program that you’ll both work on to address any concerns that you have and, ultimately, turn you into a confident public speaker that can hold the attention of an audience who will hang on your every word.
Are public speaking coaches worth it?
Yes (but we would say that, wouldn’t we?!). In all seriousness, working with a public speaking coach more than gives you a return on your investment. In addition to the self-confidence that you’ll gain, you’ll sound authentic, and, if you’re in a sales role, your ability to sign new clients and bring in valuable new income will potentially increase tenfold.

How can executives improve communication skills?
By trusting us and our executive training skills to deconstruct their current working process to find out where the breakdowns in communication are happening, together we can forge a phoenix from the flames and create a company where communication is king.
What does a communication coach do?
A communication coach will help companies to act as a more cohesive unit via business process management. They’ll do this by addressing the existing culture, finding out what, if any, processes can be improved and then tackling them head-on. As a result, retention can be improved, morale boosted, profits can skyrocket and the company can be perceived as an attractive proposition to potential employees and clients.

Jonny’s expertise in communication and his personalised coaching approach has made a significant impact on me.

The Speakers’ Gym is like the iPhone. You don’t realise you need it until you have it, and then you can’t live without it.
Magda Gonzalez, Group CFO, Monex Europe
It was completely practical and the open-forum feedback was so valuable. You created a safe environment for everyone to learn. Thank you!
Nicola Koronka, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Missive
I was recommended by a friend who works in the same sector to contact The Speakers’ Gym to help me with my presentation delivery skills and I have not been disappointed with the results. Chris and Jonny work with you to provide bespoke training for your goals and needs. They are highly professional and make you feel at ease from the first minute the first session begins. I would highly recommend them to those who have a role which involves public speaking!
Julia Peake, Technical Development Manager, Sanlam
It has challenged both my thinking and approach and I will be sure to keep The Speakers’ Gym ‘fireworks’ readily available on my desk to refer to when not only presenting but also when needed through everyday management.
Liz Paradine – Chief Operations Manager - 7iM
Transact first engaged with The Speaker Gym late in 2018 where Chris & Jonny made a concerted effort to get under the skin of our business and understand how they could best help us hone our presentational and empathetic skills. The resulting sessions were hugely helpful giving my team plenty of opportunity to practice and also benefit from a great deal of feedback, not just from Chris & Jonny but by including the rest of the Transact team in the feedback and group learning too. I would highly recommend The Speakers Gym
Glen Sweet, Head of Sales, Transact
Working with The Speakers’ Gym has been fantastic. We knew what we wanted to say and who we wanted to speak to, so all we needed was technique. Or so we thought. Chris and Jonny helped us to understand the key elements of communication, through a structured process. We now think about communication in a completely different way. There’s a line they gave us that now resonates in my head, every time I write or talk to someone about what we do. We feel we’ve met two great guys and they’ve become an important part of us, our story and how we tell it to others.
Thomas Skinner, Founder, Barnaby Cecil Financial Planning
The impact of The Speakers’ Gym™ at Mako can only be described as transformational. Over a three month period, they helped transition a group of individuals into a highly collaborative and consultative leadership team. Chris and Jonny have a unique ability to connect individuals with their true purpose, driving them towards self-reflection and ultimately growth. Overall the entire experience of working with them has been a pleasure and I am deeply grateful for their impact. They more than surpassed my expectations and I look forward to working with them again in the future!
Trystan Morgan-Schauer, CEO, Mako
We engaged The Speakers’ Gym to provide us with clarity and direction in the look, feel and messaging of the Worldmaker brand in preparation for our official launch. From start to finish, the process has been truly collaborative. They worked with the expertise and experience in our team to create branding that truly represents who we are and what we represent, whilst moving us into a more modern, expressive space – which was our desire. We know that we’re in great hands with The Speakers’ Gym. We’ll certainly be continuing to work with them
Mollie Marti, CEO, Worldmaker International
They first took the time to understand our brief and delivered the programme incorporating our culture and brand throughout. They were thought provoking and their unique techniques very well received.
Mairi Cameron, Learning Manager, Nucleus Financial
The Speakers’ Gym gave me the skills and confidence to be my normal self whilst speaking and facilitating. They took the anxiety out of public speaking and gave me practical tools to prepare for and manage public engagements. They also helped me to engage more meaningfully with my clients, for which I am thankful. Highly recommend them.
Matthew Marais, Director, Vertus Capital
I found the sessions to be a revelation, and I wish I had known some of the techniques sooner. It has completely changed my mindset and focused me in on the needs of the audience. With that, the ability to achieve those aspirations has come more naturally. There is always room for improvement, and I will definitely be revisiting The Speakers’ Gym for a refresher from time to time.
