If you don’t see a training programme that fits your needs from our shelf, we’ll happily put together a course to suit your requirements.
Below are details about our most commonly requested 1-2-1 and bespoke training courses. If there’s something you’d like us to have a go at, but it’s not on the list, please drop us a line via the enquiry form.
Ginger are specialists first and foremost in public speaking and communication confidence. We therefore do not offer any training that strays beyond this remit.
However, confident communications takes many forms and as such we are frequently asked by company clients to create tailored or bespoke workshops to suits their needs. Here are some examples of past themes:
Structure in public speaking
Whilst our TED Programme and Inspiring Speakers Programme offer advice on how to structure a talk, we can also offer day long bespoke trainings on how to structure speeches and presentations.
Humour in public speaking
Our resident stand-up comic James Evans offers a ‘stand up comedy for beginners’ course, which can be used as a lively and confidence-boosting team day.
Body language specialist Luke Gregorczyk works around physical presence in tricky situations like negotiations, on-stage, interviews, in disagreements and so on. His bespoke executive presence courses can help participants to develop gravitas, to stop trying to please, or to help manage stress.
Ginger Founder Sarah Lloyd-Hughes is an experienced trainer of public speaking across the world and occasionally offers cross-cultural theory for international public speakers in training.
Story-telling for public speaking and beyond
Ginger’s legendary Rock Journalist, Beverley Glick (who coined the term ‘the New Romantics) is a story-telling fanatic and can offer in-depth training around how to find, edit and deliver compelling company stories – from origin stories to client case studies.
Best practice on how to design and lead a webinar, usually delivered via a 2 hour webinar.
Aside from our TED training course, we can also offer bespoke programmes that combine 1-2-1 with in person or online training. This option is often used by international teams preparing for their company conference.
Stage presence & charisma
Ginger’s own Nicky Moran is a stage presence and charisma expert and also works to bring playful presence and lightness to public speaking.
Memory in Public Speaking
The fantastic memory Grand Master, Mark Channon is available to deliver high impact training days on how to remember your lines in public speaking.
Handling the media with authenticity
A number of our team have media experience and help clients to communicate with the press without resorting to cheesy cliches or lies, whether through video or audio interviews.
Non-verbal negotiation power
Back to Luke Gregorczyk again whose body language expertise can be a powerful addition to a longer course, where the need to negotiate combines with public speaking.
PowerPoint & visual aids
Whilst we’re not huge fans of PowerPoint presentations, we can offer training on how to use a variety of innovative methods to bring alive a presentation and make your messages stick.
These themes can be used as bolt-ons to an existing course, or stand-along training days.
Our talented Ginger coaching team is also available for 1-2-1 sessions, which can be designed as a bolt-on to workshops, or as a series of interactions.
Coaching Themes may include:
Nerves & confidence building:
Public speaking is nerve-wracking, we all know that. Our coaches are equipped to build confidence and help new or experienced speakers to battle through the nerves so that they can flourish under pressure. Rona Steinberg is our nerve-handling specialist.
TED Talk coaching:
One of our experienced TEDx coaches can help prepare you for a TEDx event, or similar conference, where a short and powerful talk is required. We’ll look at your idea, the flow of your content and the power with which you deliver it. If a group of speakers are preparing for TED style talks, we can also offer customised webinar learning interactions.
Our team of speech coaches can help each speaker prepare for a particular speech, developing innovative content that fits their personality and giving them the opportunity for practice and feedback.
Former Journalist Beverley Glick helps speakers to uncover their signature stories that can be used in a variety of different situations to aid connection to the audience.
Speech Analysis & Feedback:
Providing feedback on recorded speeches.
Physicality and Powerful Presence:
(only available in-person). Using cutting-edge ‘bodywork’ methods, our posture expert Luke Gregorczyk can work directly with speakers who wish to improve their physical presence, or the impact of nerves on their body.
Coaching for humour:
Ginger’s resident stand-up comic James Evans helps speakers to ‘find their funny’ by working on integrating humour into talks in a way that feels natural.
Lead Trainer Rona Steinberg is our specialist for emerging leaders and recently promoted managers to work on their communication impact. She helps them to step into their confidence so that they can handle team meetings, presentations and speeches from a place of authenticity and power.
PR Messages for public speakers:
One of communications specialists can help speakers to spot and communicate key PR messages, including in interview and on-camera situations.
Memory under pressure:
Memory Grand Master, Mark Channon offers 1-2-1 support on remembering complex information even in challenging circumstances.
