Simon Bucknall @TheCircleSimon Bucknall – ‘The Public Speaking Expert’

One evening in late 2005, Simon told an emotional tale from his school days to a small audience in a London pub. Six months later, with that same speech, he won the UK & Ireland Championship of Public Speaking. He went on to place in the top 20 out of 26,000 speakers worldwide.

Today, as one of the top public speaking experts in the UK, Simon specialises in helping executives, politicians, academics, MBA students, postgraduates, entrepreneurs and leaders in the not-for-profit sector to connect, influence and inspire through the spoken word.

Here is what others had to say about working with Simon:

“Simon is amazing. Small simple changes make a big difference. I wonder why I never thought of them before.”

“Great presenter who was very natural, engaging, energising and fun. Great practical experience, tips that we can use immediately to be better at presenting in any situation.”

“Confidence in presenting out can sometimes be overlooked and clouded by a person’s technical ability and knowledge. We sometimes assume that highly qualified and skilled employees are able to instinctively address an audience. There were numerous takeaways from this course, self confidence, networking ability, increased confidence and primary interaction with other forum members being the key wins.”
