BOOK NOw for these Upcoming Locations

Hervey Bay (31st July), Brisbane (9th October), Toowoomba (23rd October)

What would it mean for you to be able to express yourself with more confidence  and more clarity in these situations?

  • Speeches and presentations

  • Meetings, panel discussions & interviews

  • Conversations with staff and customers

  • Speaking on camera for online meetings and videos

Are any of these problems holding you back?

  • Feeling self-conscious because of a fear of being judged.

  • Thoughts and ideas racing around in your head that you just can’t seem to articulate.

  • Your mind goes blank when you are in front of an audience.

  • You find yourself rambling without making a clear point.

  • You struggle to cut through the noise and connect with your audience.

  • You find yourself being misheard, misunderstood and taken out of context.

These issues can all be overcome.

What’s more, if you have a desire to improve your speaking skills, you have an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage in your career or business.

“The person who has technical knowledge plus the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people – that person is headed for higher earning power.”

– Dale Carnegie

Hi, I’m David Wise

from Wise Words Communications

After struggling for many years myself, I’ve done the hard work of digging deep into the art and science of communication. Now I want to make it easier for you to get the results you need.

Yes. My training is based on communication and psychological research.

Yes. It is intended to challenge you.

However, I assure you that it is designed to be enjoyable and easy to implement.

In this video, I explain why improving your speaking skills requires a holistic approach (it’s 3 min 51 sec).

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

– Albert Einstein

I understand your challenges with presenting and public speaking.

I have had a love-hate relationship with public speaking all my life. I have come apart at times when nerves have gotten the better of me. However, I have also turned it around to enjoy quite a few speaking successes.

I understand what causes public speaking problems.

Through both formal communication and behavioural studies and my own experiences, I have become adept at identifying what the real problems are.

I understand what to change to get better results.

I can identify what most urgently needs changing for significant improvement.  When we work together, you are getting feedback from an experienced professional communicator.

Feedback from Past Participants

The following testimonials are from people who have done one of my various workshops or courses. I have seen many times how improving confidence and developing effective communication skills moves people towards their goals in huge increments.

It never gets old. Ever.

Thank you David. You are a wonderful presenter and mentor who seemed to read all of our thoughts and gently move us out of our comfort zones to believe in ourselves. I wholeheartedly recommend Wise Words Communications.

Joanne Cole

This morning I had a meeting with someone important who could potentially be a great asset to my business. I was amazed at how comfortable I felt about going to the meeting and when she asked me questions, I was able to confidentially, comfortably, and sensibly answer them without hesitation. Feeling very proud of myself and thankful that I found this course.

Lee-Ann Wilson

Absolutely loved David’s one day public speaking bootcamp. It was an intimate group setting that allowed for lots of practice opportunities in front of the group, with lots of feedback from David as well. Some great structure tips for planned and impromptu speaking. I highly recommend David ! He is awesome at what he does !

Amy Baldwin

  • My B-FREE five-point strategy for managing nerves

  • Three strategies for handling impromptu speaking situations

  • Some of the science behind effective communication in ‘one-to-many’ scenarios (don’t worry it doesn’t get too complex)

  • How to prepare three of the most common types of presentation

  • A warm and effective way to introduce another speaker


Discovery Session 1

As a group we will explore our challenges with speaking in various situations and begin delving into some strategies involving the pillars of mindset, content, delivery and audience understanding.

Impromptu Speaking

Learn strategies to help you gather your thoughts and respond brilliantly in a variety of impromptu speaking situations including meetings, job interviews, forums, or any situation when you’re asked to say a few words off-the-cuff.

Discovery Session 2

When it comes to public speaking, sometimes things go well and other times not so well. We will explore some practical principles to help you get it right every time and continue  to improve.

Introducing Another Speaker

When you are the host of the event, it sets a great tone if you know how to introduce others correctly.

Persuasive or Inspiring Presentations

We will discuss how to prepare two different types of presentations before you will choose one to prepare and present to the group.

Cost: $199 if booked before early bird cut-off then $249.



If you apply the strategies you have learnt for 4 weeks after the workshop and you feel that you aren’t improving, just get back in touch to book a FREE 30-minute exploration session (via Zoom) to see if we can get to the heart of the problem. If that does not help after a mutually agreed time, I will give you your money back, no more questions asked.


Can I pay in instalments?

Yes. However you will need to pay the full ticket price not the early bird price. Please contact me to make arrangements [email protected]
