This paper will present the background, outline and evaluation of an educational innovation on the conference theme of educational enhancement. The “Stand Up and Be Heard" workshops for student fear of public speaking developed from a single workshop in 2015 for physiotherapy students, to a university wide student support resource across three campuses at the University of the West of England. The three-hour public speaking workshops, won the Vice Chancellors staff excellence award for student enabling in July 2017. The evaluation of these workshops will provide evidence on the suitability and value to students with a fear of public speaking.
