Hello, who’s speaking?

Happy Good Talk is a not-so-standard training organisation with a team of comfort zone enlargers. Our Happy Good Talk trainers are experts in the field of public speaking. From a women in leadership champion to a presentation slide guru, all our trainers share a firm belief: We need more freedom to be ourselves in the world. Both in terms of individuality and appearance.

Each of our trainers has their own area of specialised expertise relating to public speaking. We deploy this expertise to pull you out of your set patterns. Because when you’re outside your comfort zone, that’s when you meet yourself. Our training offering is rebellious, creative and positive. Elements that you need to make a connection when you are speaking in public.

You don’t necessarily learn to make presentations with Happy Good Talk – you learn to comfortably be yourself in every situation. Individuality always speaks for itself.

Our mission: To give you greater self-confidence in a fun and rebellious way. This is so important because self-confidence forms the basis for a talkative life. Compare it to parachute jumping. It sounds super scary, but it’s a piece of cake when you’ve got the added security of having us tied to your back to release the parachute so you can enjoy the view. It’s doesn’t matter from what height you’re jumping; we’ll make sure you land safely.

We teach you to be closer to yourself by providing you with tailored coaching and training in the area of pitching. After all, you’re anything but standard, otherwise you would have never come into contact with us. You want to use your personality and energy to move your audience. And that speaks volumes.

A mission without vision is like an argument that erupts when you get lost on a road trip; you can only get angry if one of you misread the map. Our vision is that public speaking should be fun. After all, when you combine storytelling with your personality you create fireworks and rock every stage.

Stories are the fastest route to other people and a story is as strong as the person who is telling it. So let’s focus above all on all the things you can do. We know from experience that focusing on the positive works. It’s just like a houseplant – if you water and take care of it, it will grow and flourish.
