SPARKS is a special Public Speaking Course designed for persons seeking to inspire or motivate.
Our desire is to train and support committed persons to increase their skills and thereby release the potential of a new generation of “Inspirers”.
We are looking for people with a passion, message, knowledge or vision that needs to be heard by others – many, many others.
In a time of continuing Covid restrictions, the way in which we communicate our messages has taken on a new level of complexity. The events of 2020 have accelerated the necessity for online meetings, webinars and virtual consultations. We have designed this latest SPARKS course to reflect this dynamic.
Even though it’s an online course, our training remains highly interactive and participatory, requiring that all participants have their cameras switched on for the sessions.
