Speakerstrust Looking On

Future Voices Kent and Medway

Future Voices Kent and Medway is a new programme for Year 11 students, generously supported by the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust. It is designed to provide students with essential communication skills for life beyond the classroom.

An interactive training day of public speaking, interviewing and networking is offered to students aged 15-16, who then have the chance to represent their school in a high-profile Showcase Event. The evening features a public speaking competition followed by a networking event, where students can practise their skills and connect with local employers, Higher Education Institutions and business leaders.

The training gives students the self-belief, skills and networks to take the next step in life with confidence, empowering them to seize every opportunity available to them.

To find out how you can get involved as a company or an individual, please contact Katie Taylor on 020 7922 7903 or katie.taylor@speakerstrust.org.

5) Use The Power of Pause

‘Silence is golden’, as the saying goes. Use a pause to give your audience time to process what you’ve told them and to add impact to your statement.
