Public Speaking Classes

Public speaking training should be full of demonstrations and interaction so that participants can see exactly what to do in order to make an immediate improvement to their public speaking skills. It should be fun so that participants who have a fear of public speaking are inspired to join in and try out new techniques in front of the class. It should be taught by an award winning public speaker who can show participants new methods for improving their body language and vocal sound, and how to organize a presentation that gets to the point, stays on track and gets results.

If this is the type of public speaking training you are looking for, contact Sally Chopping to find out how she can customize a training class for your company.

Sally has an acting background and has adapted many of the techniques that actors use to help public speakers project confidence and improve their body language. Her teaching is very specific: she will show people how to improve and exactly what to do, instead of just giving vague and unhelpful criticism.

Public speaking can be daunting and difficult for most people but that does not mean that training can not be fun! Sally’s classes are always an exciting experience that keeps everybody involved and eager to learn more. She is an award winning public speaker who believes that people learn best when they are involved, entertained and can see immediate results.

Each public speaking training session is based on the type of presentations that participants will actually be giving in the future so class exercises and examples are always customized using the materials and PowerPoint slides that class participants present during their work at their company. Every element of the class is designed with your company in mind and for the type of public speaking challenges that your employees face.

Public speaking classes can be conducted on your premises. Sally Chopping is based in Pittsburgh and presents training classes in the US and Britain. Contact Sally in Pittsburgh by calling 412-478-6785 or send email to

Sally has provided practical, no nonsense, individualized feedback for the class participants in both written and verbal form. They in turn apply this feedback in their speeches and presentations, and you can instantly see the positive progress in ability to communicate effectively and capture the audience’s attention. Sally is a consummate professional with a delightful approach. I highly recommend Sally for anyone eager to improve their ability to speak and present.”
