Increase Influence and Impact by Taking your Public Speaking to the Next Level

The USB Speaker Academy was co-created by a Premier League of Professional Speakers to contribute to the growth of the speaking industry.  With this wealth of knowledge and experience, the USB stable of speakers would like to share their collective wisdom through various training programmes.

Our speakers have also identified the need for Executive speaker training because whilst presenting at business conferences, they were often asked to deliver uplifting keynote presentations to motivate and inspire audiences either before or after company speakers, who through no fault of their own, were perceived to be both boring and bad presenters with a bad habit of presenting ‘Death by PowerPoint’

In addition to this, there will be coaching available for aspiring professional speakers who wish to take their career to the next level and create professional keynote presentations.
