Our Approach

The human voice is an instrument we all play and the most powerful sound in the world. However nerves, anxiety and fear can often overwhelm us when speaking in public.

Speakers Corner was born to help people speak with confidence, honesty, authenticity and integrity. We offer coaching and support to help you find your voice – whether it’s at work or a social setting.

Our Story

Speakers Corner was formed when actor Matt Hyde was asked to help train the London Metropolitan Police in their communication techniques … and the rest is history.

Matt has gone on to work with clients such as Spotless Group at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Telstra, Big Screen Video, Journey Beyond, Relationships Australia, British Transport Police, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital and the National Health Service.

Matt brings his training as an actor to the forefront of all his courses. He is dedicated to training and coaching individuals to stand out from the crowd and deliver their messages in a clear, confident and authentic way.
