Individuals who are good public speakers seem professional, knowledgeable, and appear to be experts in their fields. They tend to have faster-progressing careers and a better understanding of the ideas that they promote. However, public speaking is often a source of fear and many of us avoid it at all costs.
The good news is that it can be learned. If you commit to showing to our workshop, our public speaking coach will lead you through her expertise and many years of experience. You are bound to advance fast! Even if you are a seasoned speaker, our training is likely to shed new light on the art of public speaking and help you develop new skills. This is especially thanks to the individualized approach to each student.
Our public speaking training is designed for fluent speakers of English.
Aim of the training
During the workshop, we will dive into the qualities that make a speech memorable; we will discuss how to open and close it. We will also reflect upon how to prepare a speech and will experiment with storytelling as a means of building rapport with the audience. We will talk about difficult situations that may arise and how to handle them. As we meet to explore and learn, you will also have an opportunity to practice your speeches in a “laboratory environment” that is free from judgment. And finally, we will work on the fear and stress that usually accompany speakers, as well as dissecting beliefs that may hamper your full success.
