Direct Speech offers many courses: :  Public speaking tutoring, The art of public speaking, Self- confidence public speaking courses, you can buy public speaking online course, Public speaking DVD, CD and the book Speech Matters.

Public speaking tutoring is a three session course in which your needs are met in this often scary skill. The course is short and effective. The aim is to shift you from where you are to where you want to be.

The art of public speaking can be learned. It is an art and requires knowledge of how to engage your audience, how to tell stories, how to structure a speech, so they can follow. It’s more about the body and the voice, than the words themselves. It’s about using descriptive language so your audience can picture what you say. It’s about logic and feelings. And it’s about pauses.

Self-confidence is something you can gain. Sometimes you have to fake it, till you make it. However, when you do Judith Field’s public speaking course, you will feel much more confident. You will know what to do if you lose your place. You will know what to do if you feel nervous and you will learn how to keep going, confidently.

On Line courses. Today with zoom, you can take a course with anyone, anywhere in the world. If you live in rural Australia or Victoria, you can sit at home and take one of my courses. So, it does not matter whether you are next door or on the other side of Melbourne, Direct Speech can help you.

The DVD and book and CD Speech Matters are full of practical tips, exercises and humour. It deals with the basics as well as debating, running meetings, occasional speeches and interviews. The book is $30 and the DVD and CD are $100 for both.

…a number of the boys made very favourable comments on the presentation and how it helped them to understand what is expected of them in terms of presenting themselves to an audience, structuring their speech and maximising their opportunity to improve their marks by aligning content and presentation.

TAC (Transport Accident Commission)

Hi Judith, Your course is fun, effective and personal – a great combination. I have prepared and given a small speech this week and managed to work consciously throughout it with pause, pace and a eye contact. Great to put your tips into practice!

Alison Potts (Swisse Vitamins)

Judith, all I can say is thank you very much for proving some very useful tools for my tool box. I carry this tool box with me everywhere and now I am confident I have a whole playing tool. Thanks again. Thoroughly engaging and personal.

Cameron (Wesley College)

Thanks for being so thoughtful in your response, Judith. I absolutely adore working with you and feel you are an essential part of what we do. Your discipline, your love of your area of expertise and our shared understandings make your visits a highlight for me. You’d have to travel far to find someone who has more respect for what you do and what you are. Unfortunately, I have financial constraints and other pressures. Sufficeth to say(!), one of the best parts of coming to MGS has been meeting you. I plan to keep our relationship going as long as you’re willing.

Cheers, Paul

Feeling stressed about delivering a high-quality speech to esteemed patrons, I needed help. So, I contacted Judith Field who has trained our opera singers for over 15 years. Having someone as patient and skilled as Judith to support me through the process was transformative. Judith encouraged me to stay focused on quality work and her constant reassurance made all the difference. On the night my speech was confident, clear and I did not feel as nervous as I thought I would.

If you ever need assistance or encouragement in public speaking, Judith Field the person to contact.

Thank you, Judith.
