Develop True Confidence – Learn to make your ideas crystal clear.

Speak Out, Stand Out

To lead, you need to develop true confidence.

How can you develop true confidence?
CLC Confidence Speaks Volumes

Our courses give you the true confidence that comes from experience.

  • You will learn to speak better, not by sitting through lectures but by actually doing it — twice every session.
  • Classes are big enough to give you real practice speaking in front of a group, and small enough for friendly individual coaching from our team of instructors.

Step-by-step lessons help you overcome nervousness as you build skills.

There are several classes each year, East, West, and Central. The tax-deductible tuition is amazingly affordable, because CLC Ottawa is a non-profit registered charity.

Frequently Asked Question:

Which course should I take?

If public speaking terrifies you, the CLC1 course (nine or eleven evenings) will give you the practice you need to develop your confidence, your leadership abilities, and your public speaking skills.
If you already have confidence and just need to improve your skills, the Effective Speaking Workshop may be all you need, and its smaller class size and faster pace may fit better into your busy life.
