Intelligence Squared Presents: Mastering the Art of Public Speaking with Graham Davies

VARIOUS DATES | Charlotte Street Hotel


All courses will run from 9am to 5.30pm.

For 15 years, Intelligence Squared has welcomed some of the world’s most impressive speakers to our stage, from President Jimmy Carter to Malala Yousafzai, and from Stephen Fry to James Comey. Our debates epitomise the power that public speaking has to change minds and change lives.

Now you can have the chance to learn some of the skills used by our Intelligence Squared speakers. We are hosting one-day public speaking courses in partnership with Graham Davies, the UK’s leading presentation coach. His clients have included fifteen British cabinet ministers, the prime ministers of three different countries and eight FTSE 100 CEOs.

Graham’s Pipeline methodology takes you all the way from initial audience analysis right through to post-speech Q and A.

Each course is limited to 12 people and will take place at the luxurious Charlotte Street Hotel in central London. Lunch is included.

Whatever your experience level, our course, Mastering the Art of Public Speaking, will massively improve your impact in every possible presentation scenario, whether it’s in a board room, ballroom or broadcast studio.

The courses in November and December have sold out, but we have launched three new 2019 courses: 27 February, 27 March and 24 April.
