Sydney Speaking School offers a wide range of holiday workshops in debating and public speaking for school students aged 6 - 15 in North Sydney, Inner West, Parramatta and Bondi Junction.

Co-founded and run by former corporate lawyer Mark Slaven, Sydney Speaking School seeks to remedy the lack of good quality education in public speaking throughout greater Sydney.  Using their combined skills honed through years of experience, the Sydney Speaking School team aim to bring out the charismatic speaker that hides within every student, shy or outgoing, by using fun, engaging and welcoming programs targeted at improving the speaking skills of primary and senior school students. 

Sydney Speaking School takes its key teaching doctrine of ‘learning by doing’ to heart, and seeks to ensure that every class is kept small, that every student is given multiple opportunities to speak in a fun, relaxed environment, and that every one of their experienced and passionate coaches is able to provide individualised feedback.

Sydney Speaking School also runs a range of term programs in partnership with coaching colleges across Sydney - please get in touch if you're interested in getting involved!
