THE SIX ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF POWERFUL PUBLIC SPEAKING
Two hours that can transform the way you communicate
Speaking well is one of the most critical of all workplace skills and yet an overwhelmingly large number of people are, let’s face it, lousy at it. Boring, pedantic or just plain terrified.
And yet, the ability to communicate powerfully is the single quality that marks the most successful men and women. Effective speakers get the job, the promotion, the visibility, the clout. Ineffective speakers get left behind—even when they are equally, or better qualified. Good speakers also benefit a company by their ability to lead teams, represent the company or give public talks. In addition, few things beat the satisfaction of having something to say, saying it powerfully--and knowing that people sat up and listened.
Here’s a secret: The world’s best speakers weren’t born that way. They trained for it. In fact, training in speaking skills is a routine part of professional training abroad.
Got a client presentation to make ? A case to argue ? A critically important negotiation ? A public speaking event ? Speaking powerfully is far easier than most people realize, once you know a few simple techniques. This workshop has specially been designed to deliver maximum results in a short intense session (between two and four hours). It will help you permanently lose your fear of public speaking and leave you with some fresh insights that can take your communication to a whole new level.
