Pressbox (Press Release) - OSTRICH HATCHES ON THE NET

- the UK's freshest young company to offer interactive speech delivery courses launches today on www.headinthesand.co.uk -

Do you want to feel confident when addressing a crowd? Do you want to learn how to speak in public and feel happy that you're keeping your audience interested?

If you'd like to learn how to deliver presentations, pitch for new business or bring the house down when you're speaking at a social event, Ostrich, launched today on www.headinthesand.co.uk, can offer all you need to know.

Ostrich, the UK's freshest and most innovative new company to offer public speaking and audience relations courses on the net, is the brain child of a team of young writers, actors, psychologists and marketing consultants. The site provides a step by step guide to speech delivery - looking at body language; voice projection; intonation and structure. Ostrich also provides tips and advice to maximise your creativity, utilising applied techniques from Spectograms to video presentations and analysis.

"Ostrich is all about helping individuals or groups from all walks of life, corporate or otherwise, to increase their confidence and realise their potential as engaging speakers," said Richard Waters, actor and joint founder of the company. "Our website, and our one-to-one coaching sessions, offer swift and practical solutions to help remove our clients' heads from the sand, and help them talk confidently in small or large groups."

For business clients and corporations, Ostrich particularly focuses on ways to help project key messages and communicate company strategies. "In my position, I often have to address board meetings and conferences," said Gareth Watson, managing director, Telstar Video. "It's important to be in control of how you come across, so you can seal your point and engage people's attention. A day's course with Ostrich provided a very insightful bag of tricks that has helped build my confidence and my ability to deal with a large audience."

Take the Ostrich tour on www.headinthesand.co.uk for a quick and easy introduction to the basics in making a successful speech, and for details of courses, consultations and even ways to re-energise a tried or stressed workforce through role playing, brainstorming, and positive-thinking techniques.

As well as offering first class speech coaching, script analysis and communication skills coaching, Ostrich also specialises in writing and editing in-house newsletters.
