Course Overview

Utilising a range of fun and interactive activities, this program allows coaches to encourage students to step further out of their comfort zones, and places a particular focus on cultivating engaging presentation styles.

The focus of each Lions program changes each term, with the same program being taught across all our venues – we’ve got more specific details for what’s coming up next below!

As with all our online programs, class sizes are kept small (a maximum of 8) so that each student can be provided with maximum support and attention, including plenty of individualised feedback from our experienced coaches.

Stories are what bind humanity together – there is nothing better than a good narrative to imbue an otherwise dull topic with a sense of intrigue and adventure, and help get your audience onside.

Out Term #2 Lions program will focus on the art of storytelling, and provide students with an introduction to the fundamental concepts associated with spinning a good yarn.  Taking a holistic approach to telling stories, the program places the focus on how the three pillars of storytelling – characters, settings and plots – interact with one another to make a story both interesting and impactful.

We genuinely believe that whilst our online programs look and feel a little different, they are just as effective in helping students develop their speaking abilities.

Unlike most providers, we run all our online programs live in small classes – nothing is pre-recorded, and everything happens in real time. This means that coaches are able to adapt their teaching style to the class that they actually have, leading to the best possible learning outcomes for students.

Students are also given just as many opportunities to practice in front of an audience – whilst not physically present, students can still see all their peers’ faces on the computer screen, providing them with an audience that feels (and is) very real.  This means that students are still able to apply the theory they learn, develop their confidence, and crucially receive indvidualised feedback in real time.

If you’re still not sure, check out our video on online programs or get in touch to learn more!

All of our online term programs run for a single 1.5 hour session per week, for a total of around 10 weeks.

There is a short break in the middle of the session to help students concentrate for the full period, and in any event students won’t be starting at the screen the whole time either – they will be encouraged to prepare their practice speeches (at least one every session) on paper, as they would in a physical classroom setting.

Our Presentation Skills Lions course is an experienced level program.

Students are assumed to have a reasonable understanding of public speaking, and in particular persuasive speeches, before undertaking the program.  By way of indiciation, the Lions program would be suitable for students who have:

  • previously completed one or two terms of our Presentation Skills Leopards term program;
  • completed at least two intensive holiday workshops, including our Presentation Skills Tabby Cats and Presentation Skills Tigers programs;
  • already done one Lions term program, and want to come back for another term to learn a new skill; or
  • received plenty of formal public speaking coaching from another provider.

Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss what’s best for your child!

After completing the Presentation Skills Lions Storytelling program, students should:

  • have been exposed to the fundamental principles which form the foundations of good storytelling;
  • understand the three pillars of a good story – characters, settings and plots – and be able to integrate the three together to make an engaging narrative; and
  • have been given multiple opportunities to present to their class in each and every session.

Our classes vary in size every workshop depending on how many bookings we receive – however, the maximum size of our Lions Online class is around six students with one coach.

If there aren’t any spots left, it’s usually because we’ve hit capacity – please get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do about either opening an extra class, fitting your child into the existing class, or putting you on a waitlist in case any students pull out!

By the end of each program, students will have:

  • typed feedback, prepared individually for them by their coach, which goes through what they’ve improved on, and what still needs some work;
  • a digital certificate recognising their achievements;
  • a digital course booklet (that can be printed), which covers everything they’ve learned over the course of the program;
  • the speech that they prepared for their final presentations; and
  • a much better understanding of how to tell an engaging story!

Very good program - we are looking forward to you running after school programs in our area!

Amy L, Parent Presentation Skills Tigers

Loved the communication - I feel everyone is very dedicated.

My son also benefitted for the course we will continue to enrol him next term.
