Confidence Through Talk

The Dialogue Room offers a unique opportunity to practise speaking clearly and listening well. It was developed in response to the demand from private clients who want the chance to meet other students and to progress, as a group, over several weeks.

The course has been designed and developed with Stephanie Young, a talented and experienced facilitator with whom Kieran Morris has been delivering successful workshops since 2016.

A full description of the course, including its content, length and price, along with an introduction to the tutors, is available in our brochure.

We recently recorded a conversation about the creation of the course, which you can hear below (8 mins).

“All that stands between you and a fluent expression of your thoughts and feelings are habits that can be unlearned.”

Course Overview


The Dialogue Room starts every student intake with an intense two-day workshop. This is the first chance to meet both of the tutors and new colleagues.

Over two days the group will begin to bond, support one another in identifying the beliefs that inhibit good conversation, and start to learn how to speak and listen more effectively. The group becomes a close and powerful unit, greater than the sum of its parts, as colleagues experience the rare pleasure of talking openly about talking.

Weekly sessions

Participants are invited to keep meeting, once a week for ten weeks, to expand the skills they have learned in the workshop. Each student chooses projects to work on throughout the course. Every class offers structured exercises in addition to improvised solutions for questions the participants bring to class that week.

The tutors create a welcoming and even celebratory room: we know life-changing things happen when people learn how to speak openly together.


Who is this course designed for?

The course is for open-minded people who would like to feel more confident in how they communicate, day-to-day. We are excited to set the bar high, asking a lot of ourselves and one another, both emotionally and technically. One of our greatest pleasures is working with like-minded participants.

How quickly will I progress?

The initial process of discovering one’s limiting beliefs is quick. Establishing new habits takes practise. We’ve designed the course to give you everything you need to understand these beliefs and the welcoming space in which to rehearse speaking without them. By the end of ten weeks you will have tried out your new skills in small groups, one-to-one and in front of the whole class. This work is most effective in the supportive and encouraging environment that we enjoy creating. We’ve got your back, all the way.

Who else will be on the course?

We attract people who are excited about gaining confidence, not just as speakers but in all areas of their lives. To date we have worked with lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs, marketers, engineers, composers, linguists, copywriters, programmers, CEOs and civil servants of all ages, races and genders. Of the 12–16 people in your group, you are likely to meet a rich mix, from different backgrounds and professions.

Every workshop we run brings us new discoveries and experiences. One of our recent graduates told us that “I now feel like anything is possible”. We want to share that feeling with you.

“Stephanie and Kieran were amazing and extremely welcoming, with such enthusiasm. An amazing, inclusive experience.
Thank you so much!”

“I enjoyed the whole day very much; I’d like more of it all!”
