Regular Group Training Session (World Champion Certification Programme)

2 (2)

The World Champion Certification Programme is a programme designed by our first and only Singaporean World Champion of Public Speaking, Darren Tay. Darren Tay, who is the youngest World Champion of Public Speaking (the only World Champion currently under the age of 30) is also the founder and Managing Director of the Public Speaking Academy Pte Ltd. Together with his hand-picked and highly qualified teaching faculty trainers, Darren Tay designed and registered the programme syllabi, along with the Certification examination, with the Ministry of Education.

We believe in offering our clients, of all ages, world-class training in effective communication to better prepare them for school and the workforce. Here is how it works:

Our World Champion Certification Programme, the only regular group training class at our learning centre, offers the most engaging and holistic range of effective communication skills training to clients of different age groups: ranging from the Upper Primary category to professional working adults. In our regular group training sessions, we offer a conducive and safe environment to learn effective communication skills. Our teaching faculty members conduct lessons in an encouraging and engaging fashion. Quite unlike the lecture style of teaching seen in schools and universities, we believe in a greater emphasis on hands-on exercises for optimal assimilation of public speaking know-how and knowledge. Our 30-70 rule (skills sharing, theories, techniques make up only 30% of total curriculum time; whereas 70% is allocated to practice) ensures that all our participants get valuable opportunities to speak up and hone their effective communication skills for every lesson.

We keep our class size small (minimum 6 and maximum 15 students) so that each participant can receive greater focus and attention from the trainer.

To facilitate optimal and holistic learning, we provide participants with printed handouts and video recordings of their own speech deliveries so that they may perform an evaluation of their performances at the conclusion of the course.

Our training courses (inclusive of fee structure) are as follow:
