Then, congratulations.
You have arrived in the right place!

You might not be naturally charismatic...

You might not be naturally charismatic...

"I was never charismatic..."

It's okay. 
We are here to change that.

This course will allow your conversations to tap into people's hearts

You'll gain the skills to establish deep connections with people, get your ideas heard and have an impact on your listeners just with the power of your words.

The technique taught is very ancient and well-known to TED-speakers, politicians and leaders. It's called Storytelling.

"When I started I was a very bad storyteller. People would often not listen to my stories till the end, interrupt me or get distracted. Then I participated in Skillsme Academy's Storytelling course, which has became the game changer for me. There was a minimum of useless talking and a maximum of learning and practiceBut what I enjoyed the most is that now I myself fell in love with telling stories! My delivery has changed so much that people want to listen to me more and more. Thank you so much Skillsme Academy!"

"I am so glad that I attended this course because it’s helped me grow. Diana at Skillsme is an expert at storytelling. She taught me the finer details of how to create, structure and narrate a compelling story that can effectively engage an audience. Her sessions are very insightful and excellent for someone starting off with zero knowledge on how to effectively tell a story that captivates and inspires an audience. The skills you will learn through this course will improve your communication skills by leaps and bounds and can be applied to various other areas in your personal and professional endeavours. For those reasons I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in taking their communications skills to the next level."

Diana Robertson

Storyteller, Public Speaker
& Founder of Skillsme Academy

"I used to be very shy and introverted. I thought that this is who I naturally was, so I am stuck with it.

When I was a child I couldn't make new friends or speak to strangers. Even when I grew up I still couldn't present myself - I couldn't pass a single job interview despite the fact that I was often the most qualified candidate.

After 34th job declined in a row I realised that I needed help...

I read many books, watched and attended all types of courses on communication, public speaking, debate, drama, improv and many others. It was incredibly scary and I was so bad I often wanted to drop everything.

Until one day it hit me: I am no longer the person I used to be. I love speaking to new people, I make friends really easily and I don't just pass the job interviews - my new skills got me to positions where I was the person asking questions.

The way I communicated has touched every aspect of my life: work, family and relationships. It was incredible! It felt so good living life as a confident communicator knowing that I will be heard.

But this triumph made me sad as well, because I knew that there were still millions of people out there in the exact situation I started from (shy, unconfident and too introverted) who have no idea that such change is even possible. This is how the idea of Skillsme, a school for introverts, came along."

Are you in a similar boat?
We know how to help.

"Amazed by Skillsme Academy. Diana [Academy's Founder] is a high-end professional who puts a lot of energy and knowledge into her programmes. I sincerely recommend Skillsme Academy to those who understand that talking using facts and statements alone is not enough to be an effective communicator, especially if you want people to "buy" what you "sell". Skillsme taught me how to become more convincing and achieve desired results as a communicator while still sounding genuine and humane. It was a top level training."
