The CEO Speaker: Craft Impactful Executive Speeches
Imagine attending a conference where every executive delivers speeches that inspire, enlighten, and engage.
We’ve all sat through presentations where CEOs float complex ideas that sail right over our heads, or where crises demand immediate speeches written in haste rather than with precision.

Executive Public Speaking Coach
Have you ever heard the term “kill your darlings”? It’s often used in the world of writing to express the tough decision of removing cherished elements that aren’t serving the overall message.
Believe it or not, it applies to public speaking, too.
You see, being an executive often means you have many great ideas. But here’s the tricky part: not all those ideas are going to resonate with your audience.
As an Executive Public Speaking Coach, I help executives figure out which ideas are keepers and which ones need to be let go for the sake of the bigger picture. And trust me, it can be a challenge! But it’s also incredibly rewarding.
I’ve had the pleasure of coaching executives who have been keynote and conference speakers. Their journey to becoming more effective communicators has been nothing short of inspiring.
There was this one time I was training an executive who prepared a video and a PowerPoint presentation for a big event. As fate would have it, the projector at the venue broke down. But did that faze her? Not one bit! She delivered her speech with such confidence that she got a two-minute standing ovation at the end.
So whether your executives are already great speakers or just starting to find their voice, they can always benefit from someone who can help them shape their messages and delivery to meet their specific goals.
I extend my coaching services to company executives, governors, and mayors. Because no matter who you are, there’s always room to improve and ways to make your speeches more impactful.
Lunch and Learn Sessions
In our busy lives, we all value opportunities to learn and grow without having to carve out extra time in our schedules. That’s the beauty of Lunch and Learn sessions.
Over a 90-minute online gathering, you can munch on your meal while digesting some valuable information and insights on public speaking.
I conduct Lunch and Learn sessions tailored to the specific needs of your organization. Topics I cover in these bite-sized learning modules include:
- How to Use Mind Mapping in Writing Speeches
- Speech Patterns for Different Types of Speeches
- The Art of Using Stories in Speeches
- Techniques for Presenting Data Visually
- Cultivating a Growth Mindset in Public Speaking
- Practical Ways to Improve Public Speaking Skills
These sessions are designed to be concise, engaging, and highly actionable. They offer the kind of practical, hands-on advice and insights that can make a real difference to your team’s communication skills.
But my support doesn’t stop there. If your organization is keen to set up your own Lunch and Learn sessions with your managers as resource speakers, I can assist in designing and structuring those sessions for maximum impact.
It’s about sharing knowledge, boosting skills, and creating a culture where everyone feels more confident and competent in their ability to speak up and be heard.
Public speaking might seem like a daunting task, reserved only for the naturally talented or those who’ve spent years studying it.
But let’s break that myth right here, right now.
Are you scared of making a speech? Do you spend days and nights worrying about it? It’s a common fear, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
Public speaking isn’t just about preparing your words. It’s about preparing yourself—physically, mentally, and spiritually. When these three aspects align, you’re ready to give a speech that can move people, anytime, anywhere.
Here’s where our public speaking courses come into play.
Public Speaking Courses
Public speaking courses are classes that teach people how to confidently and effectively speak in front of an audience. They reveal how to make good speeches, connect with listeners, use voice and body gestures well, and handle nervousness.
The goal is to help participants become better communicators in various situation.
Public speaking courses do more than teach you how to speak to a crowd. They boost confidence, improve how you talk and share ideas daily, and help develop leadership skills.
Here are some of the main benefits of these courses.
As you practice and get more comfortable speaking in front of others, the fear and nervousness associated with addressing a crowd disappear.
This boosted confidence can be a game-changer, not just in public speaking but in other aspects of life, helping you voice your opinions and stand up.
Improve Communication Skills
Public speaking courses teach more than just how to address a large audience; they offer valuable lessons in effective communication.
You learn how to organize your thoughts, convey ideas clearly, and engage listeners.
Build Persuasion & Leadership Abilities
By learning the art of public speaking, you also develop the skills to persuade and influence your audience.
This ability to sway opinions or inspire change is crucial for those aspiring to leadership roles.
Whether in business, community groups, or team projects, the capability to present compelling arguments and motivate others is a mark of a great leader.

Effective Public Speaking Training
Public speaking isn’t a one-size-fits-all skill. It’s a tool that different people use in different ways. CEOs, young professionals, students – they all have unique needs and goals when it comes to speaking in public. That’s why effective public speaking training is so important.
Effective training isn’t about learning generic techniques and hoping they’ll work for you. It’s about understanding your specific purpose and how public speaking can help you achieve it. This understanding is the foundation of our approach to public speaking training.
Our courses aren’t designed to be a catch-all. Instead, we’ve crafted a range of different programs, each tailored to the needs of different audiences. From C-suite executives to fresh-faced students, we’ve got a program that fits.
But the customization doesn’t stop there.
Our training is workshop-based, giving you plenty of opportunities to practice your skills and receive feedback. This isn’t about passively listening to lectures. It’s about getting hands-on experience and learning by doing.
For businesses looking to train their teams, we go even further. We’ll work with you to align our courses with your competency map and business strategy. That way, your team isn’t just learning to speak – they’re learning to speak in a way that drives your business forward.
Don’t settle for generic public speaking courses that often feel impractical and disconnected from your needs. Invest in training that truly understands your needs, your goals, and how public speaking can help you achieve them.
That’s what effective public speaking training is all about.
Public Speaking Training Isn’t English Speaking Training
Here in the Philippines, there’s a common misconception that’s been peddled around for far too long. Many believe that to be a good public speaker, you must be a good English speaker.
That’s why most public speaking training providers focus more on English language skills. They zero in on diction, pronunciation, grammar, pacing, and phrasing. They try to squeeze years’ worth of English learning into a few days.
But is this really what public speaking is all about?
Public speaking isn’t about showcasing your English proficiency. It’s about communicating your ideas effectively and connecting with your audience, no matter what language you’re speaking.
You can deliver a compelling speech in Tagalog, Bisaya, Ilocano, or any other language that your audience understands.
While you’re reading this in English, rest assured that our public speaking workshops focus on making you an exceptional public speaker in any language. We believe in breaking past the language barrier and tapping into the universal power of effective communication.
Of course, if you’re looking to improve your English fluency or grammar, we can connect you with fantastic trainers who specialize in that.
But our goal here is to help you speak with confidence and impact, and we’re committed to providing training that helps you achieve just that.
So, let’s redefine what public speaking training really means together!
Public Speaking Certification
If you’re looking for a certification that labels you a “certified speaker”, you won’t find it here. Yes, you’ll receive a certificate upon completing these public speaking courses. It’ll be a nice token to show your boss, indicating the skills you’ve been taught.
But your true certification?
That will come from your performance, from your ability to communicate effectively and make an impact.
The reality is that all of us are public speakers in our own right. We don’t need a piece of paper to certify us as such.
This doesn’t mean certification isn’t important in some scenarios. Certain organizations provide certification to validate you as a professional speaker, acknowledging your ability to deliver a number of paid speeches, or certifying you to deliver their proprietary training program.
Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that I’m a professional speaker who never sought out certification. Instead, what I have is a track record of delivering value to my clients, earning their trust along the way.
What I hope for you, as a participant in these courses, is to walk away with the ability to deliver speeches that meet your unique objectives. You don’t need a certificate to be a good speaker. Strive to be a great speaker, and the approval and recognition from your audience will be your most rewarding certification.
Public Speaking Courses for Students
I’m excited to offer public speaking workshops specifically designed for students, and at a minimal fee.
Picture this: over 200 students gathered together, filling the room with an infectious energy. This one-day workshop is highly interactive and serves as a playground for students to find their voice and confidence in public speaking.
There are two versions of the workshop to choose from.
The first focuses on building confidence in public speaking. I’ve seen firsthand how developing these skills can improve student performance across all their subjects. Often, students have brilliant ideas but are held back by their fear of public speaking. This workshop gives them the platform to overcome this fear and share their genius.
The second course zeroes in on impromptu speaking. Being able to articulate your thoughts coherently and on the spot is a valuable skill. It’s something that makes students stand out since many avoid being put on the spot. But those who can organize their ideas swiftly and present clear examples are always perceived as excellent students.
These workshops are best delivered in a face-to-face format. Though I do offer webinars, I believe that the full experience of public speaking – the palpable connection with the audience, the immediate feedback – is best learned in a live, in-person setting. After all, public speaking is all about real human connection.
Public Speaking Training for School Principals
School principals stand at the helm of educational institutions. They are the leaders who inspire and inform their teaching staff. They shape the educational climate and set the tone for the entire school.
But many, through no fault of their own, are not as comfortable or effective at public speaking as they might wish to be. And that’s where I come in.
I offer public speaking training specifically tailored for school principals. This training is conducted at a district level, making it accessible and affordable to a greater number of educational leaders. My fees are kept minimal, not because the training isn’t valuable, but because I want to ensure that as many principals as possible can benefit from it.
This isn’t a criticism of our educational system. It’s a recognition that not every skill comes naturally to every person, and public speaking is no exception.
Through this workshop, I want to support our principals, bolster their confidence, and equip them with the skills they need to be persuasive, engaging speakers.
And, while I do also provide transformational leadership training for school principals, that’s a different subject entirely.
Here, the focus is squarely on honing public speaking skills.
Because when our principals speak with clarity, passion, and conviction, they have the power to inspire and motivate not just their staff, but their entire school community.
If you’ve got a knack for public speaking and you’d love to help others get better at it, why not join us at the Public Speaking Academy?
Now, we’re not your typical academy with a big building and degree programs. We don’t have that kind of setup here in the Philippines.
Instead, what we offer are practical, hands-on public speaking courses that really engage workplace professionals looking to sharpen their public speaking skills.
We bring together communication pros and professional speakers to act as mentors. So, if you have a special talent in public speaking, come and share it with us.
Become part of our Speech Mentors team.
