Introducing Ultraspeaking courses at Saturday Kids, a collaboration with certified Ultraspeaking specialists from Los Angeles, the same team that had trained executives at Google and Amazon.
Michael Gendler and Tristan de Montebello are founders of Ultraspeaking. They have respectively struggled with an ability to effectively communicate in a mass setting until their encounters with public speaking. Tristan in particular even became the fastest competitor to win the World Championships of Public Speaking. They both drew from their experiences, to design a set of course using principles from various disciplines to teach people how to learn, speak and also improve their image and chances of success.

“The thing about improvisation is that it’s not about what you say. It’s listening to what other people say. It’s about what you hear.” — Paul Merton
In this interactive Ultraspeaking camp, kids ages 11-14 learn to loosen up, think on their feet, develop their unique voice, and navigate new situations with both skill and humour.
Welcome to the power of improv (short for improvisation), a fun, dynamic and powerful tool for finding and exercising your own voice.
This blended camp is designed for kids to develop and unearth their unique voice through minimal lecturing, direct feedback, and needless to say – lots of fun and games.
Oh! The stuff you'll learn
Learn to loosen up
Think on your feet
Find your unique voice
Tackle new situations with skill and humour
Life skills you'll learn
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
"N is enjoying the classes and looks forward to them every week. She especially enjoys learning CSS. She thinks her instructor should get a teacher award.
"My son had so much fun."
"My daughter learnt many things she had not imagined were possible to grasp at her age. In particular, before the class, she couldn’t make sense of the code she would see for a webpage, but now she understands what’s going on. She realizes the amount of work and thought that goes into making successful websites."
Your kid will love it
If your kid doesn't think it's the best thing ever after attending the first 2 days of holiday camps (or first 3 weeks of term classes), and would like to withdraw, we'll issue you a 50% credit note of the amount paid.
