A Best Man speech can give rise to sleepless nights, and in some cases quite extreme physical reactions. We know you are so keen to do well. You don’t want to “let the side down”, and you want to show the folks that you can do it.

It is surprising how much improvement you can make with relatively little practice, so it might be worth at least looking at lesson 1. Stick with it. The course starts at basic level, but there is power in even the first exercise.


So there is plenty for you to see, listen, watch, and use. Good luck with your speech!
