The Public Speaking Academy’s success has featured both locally and internationally. We have delivered our outstanding World Champion public speaking courses in Singapore and reaching out to people from all walks of life, from students to working professionals, to excel in communication in their respective fields. These courses cater to the specific learning needs of our participants, with programmes ranging from weekly public speaking sessions for kids and adults to intensive boot camps/masterclasses to hone our participants’ repertoire of public speaking skills.

Beyond our extensive public speaking courses, the Public Speaking Academy aims to challenge our Secondary and Tertiary school students to be confident and compelling speakers by organizing the National Public Speaking Competitions successfully since 2010. The National Public Speaking Competition is a nation-wide public speaking competition in Singapore to provide students with a valuable platform to showcase their varied public speaking talents and pit themselves against the best in Singapore.
These students join a growing public speaking community, engaging in skills-exchanges and networking opportunities from young. As contestants in the National Public Speaking Competition, the students also challenge themselves to think critically, respond cogently and persuade passionately on a variety of local and international issues. The National Public Speaking Competition prides itself as the preferred platform by schools to invest in the effective communication potential of their students through participation in the competition. Since 2010, the National Public Speaking Competition has seen over 1000 student participants as contestants and over 300 public speaking professionals/enthusiasts, contributing as members of the Organizing Committee, Adjudication Panel or the volunteer team. The Competition brings together the key players in the public speaking sphere in Singapore together for a valuable learning opportunity.
The public speaking courses and programmes above are helmed by our quality and professional public speaking teaching faculty members. These members consist of highly-sought-after public speaking trainers or motivational speakers. Our trainers are in high demand for both the breadth and depth of competent communication skills they command and their achievements and accolades in the public speaking sphere.
