Speaking anxiety can be addressed through ongoing training and support.

Every year, millions of young professionals across North America will assume new leadership roles and are required to communicate more than ever. Customer calls, meetings, pitches, team management—these new leaders have to speak publicly, But…

Research shows that around 70% of them will experience ongoing feelings of nervousness, anxiety and self-doubt triggered by public speaking [1]

Left unmanaged, that anxiety can lead your team to:

  • Avoid leadership opportunities​
  • Experience burnout​
  • Miss work
  • Quit altogether 

In addition to the negative impact on mental health, it can also affect how employees communicate with peers, management, customers, and clients. Putting them at risk of being branded as nervous, unprepared, untrustworthy, or lacking in credibility. 

As a result, each year it’s estimated that organizations lose $11,076 per person, per year stemming from lost or reduced productivity in the workplace [2].

We can help your team improve their speaking confidence.

Speak for Success is a leadership development platform created specifically to help emerging leaders improve (1) their level of speaking confidence as well as (2) their technical communication skills so they can perform better at work.

We do this by providing our members with ongoing opportunities to practice their communication skills in a fun, safe and supportive environment with the guidance of a professional communications coach & facilitator.

📈 The result? A more confident, skilled, and diverse pipeline of talent.

Ideally, communications training should start before an employee begins managing others. But that doesn’t happen often. According to a study by HBR, the average age managers first receive any training is 42, even though most first-time managers have an average age of 30. 

How we can support your team

Influencing for Impact:
Communication Series©

A custom workshop series delivered to your team,  specifically tailored to the public speaking and communication skills they want (and need) to develop in order to become effective leaders. 


Our TeamPass© makes it easy for your team to join our annual membership program. For one flat fee, your entire team of emerging leaders can access public speaking and communications skills training for an entire year.

Our approach

Public speaking can be intimidating, especially in front of peers and colleagues. That’s why we set a tone of safety, casualness, fun and support at the beginning of every session we deliver. Our goal is for the team to get out of their comfort zone, embrace mistakes, and be ready to have a lot of fun and do a lot of laughing along the way.

Throughout our program, we emphasize the importance of practice and encourage teams to re-frame the way they think about public speaking by adopting a growth-mindset; understanding that it is a skill that can be developed and strengthened over time through ongoing training. Peer feedback is a key element of this workshop which builds a sense of trust, support, and camaraderie among the team.

By the end of this training, teams are eager to start applying what they’ve learned at meetings, on calls, and during presentations. They also become more open to performance feedback.

We’re proud to be supported by an incredible community of funding partners.
