Speak Up. Stand Tall. Dance to the Beat of Your Own Drum!

Courses, groups and 1:1 with Richard Mills

It’s not just the words you use...

It’s how you say them…



And it’s how you feel about yourself…

…that makes you confident.

Work with our inspiring trainers here at Confidence Tracks: develop your interpersonal skills, learn how to enjoy public speaking, and deepen your self-knowledge.

Do you:

  • Get scared about the idea of making a presentation?
  • Doubt your ability to make an impact?
  • Apologise too much?
  • Agree to do things, then regret it later?
  • Find it difficult to handle criticism?
  • Feel angry, but not know what to do?
  • Let your feelings control you?

Would you like to:

  • Enjoy making presentations?
  • Present yourself with impact?
  • Ask for things, without feeling guilty?
  • Speak up in a group, even when you are afraid?
  • Say no? … without feeling you are rude?
  • Stand tall and proud, when facing the world around you?
  • Handle  difficult emotions well?

This is for you!

‘If you know anyone who is lacking in confidence and perhaps is struggling to communicate at work (or indeed anywhere!) then in my opinion Richard is the chap to contact.  We had reason to enlist the help of Richard for a new young employee that had these issues and I cannot express enough how much Richard has done for this young man – the transformation is incredible.  Clearly Richard knows what he is doing!  Our employee found him easy to communicate with and we  the employer also found Richard to be very accommodating and very easy to deal with.’
