Who Are We?

Hello, I’m Maureen McCowen. Thank you for your interest in my communication and presentation skills training course. 

I’m based in Naas, Co. Kildare. I work face-to-face with individuals and businesses throughout Leinster, and via Zoom/Skype worldwide. 

Communication has always been a passion of mine.  I spent many years as a language teacher, helping young people to communicate their ideas in Irish and French. More recently, I have re-directed my focus to helping others develop their communication and presentation skills. 

I have seen how fear of public speaking can be paralysing for some people. Do you avoid delivering work presentations? Do you dread being asked to give a speech? Do you feel that you need to create greater impact with your presentations ?  That’s where I can help. I love to see how quickly participants gain confidence to communicate clearly by adopting the tips learned on our communication and presentation skills courses.

Working with you, I will help you create a speech or presentation that reflects your voice. I will teach you how to control your nerves and gain more confidence in your delivery.

I look forward to working with you and enabling you to communicate with clarity and present without pressure. 

Why choose us?

We carefully assess your needs in advance  so that training is tailored to your needs 

Training can be one-to-one, lunch & learn sessions, half-day or full-day workshops. Individual training sessions available via Zoom/Skype

We understand that a “one size fits all” approach isn’t necessarily the best option. So we tailor the training to suit your requirements

With 30 years experience of teaching, presenting and connecting, we are able to meet the needs of a range of learning styles and abilities

We believe in learning by experience, so our workshops allow participants plenty of opportunity to practice the new skills 

We offer a follow-up after our workshops to ensure that the learning has been transferred to the workplace
