School Training

Award-winning speakers Anthony Garvey and Justin McCarthy have successfully delivered their public speaking and presentation programme to over 50 primary and secondary schools in Ireland.

The programme which is suitable for children of all ages helps to build the confidence of pupils who may be nervous at the prospect of speaking or presenting in public.

In the first half, pupils get the chance to learn by watching and listening to award-winning speeches which they will evaluate to uncover the successful elements of a winning presentation. Pupils are provided with a range of tips and tactics from voice projection and vocal variety to using humour and body language to make a successful and persuasive speech or presentation.


“The pupils were ‘wowed’ by the presentations which set the stage for a productive discussion on its essential parts. The experience and knowledge of the presenters was evident and they built a great rapport with the pupils” Sharon Fitzgerald, Teacher, Cólaiste Na Sceilge, Caherciveen, Co. Kerry

The second half is designed to help children build confidence in and manage their fears of public speaking and presenting.  Children are also encouraged to interact with and ask questions in a safe and positive environment as well as practicing their impromptu speaking through debates, speeches and fun exercises.  And most importantly of all, everyone will get a chance to practice and find their voice.


Wonderful morning. We had a visit from Anthony and Justin award winning speakers and presenters. What an inspirational presentation for the children on how to overcome their fear of public speaking and presenting. Dolores Johnston, Principal, Douglas National School Killorglin, County Kerry
