“Lap of the Block”
Professional Communication Workshops
July and August 2020
12 workshops; Cooktown to Mount Isa, Tennant Creek to Darwin and Alice Springs, and back via Townsville, the Covid chains are unleashed.
Cutting to the Chase
These communication workshops are high energy, interactive and entertaining. They blend the neuroscience of speaking, giving you an understanding of the driving forces, with the practical application of techniques, so as you can deliver your message smoothly and memorably.
We start with dispelling the fear factors, before unleashing the power of mind maps, where you will learn the skill of creating a memorable presentation in ten minutes, (give or take). This is followed by how to use the stage, with your delivery and content connecting strongly and memorably with dopamine charged audiences.
We touch on creating change through empowering evaluations, an essential skill for any workplace in this dynamic world. Then we visit, understanding the mechanics behind humour, stirring up those neuro-connecting endorphins in the audience. Finally we encourage your dorsolateral prefrontal cortex to take a holiday, so as you relaxed in answering impromptu questions, and have strategies for handling tough questions from the press, or when needing to nail those job interview questions.
You will be able to create formal presentations that have depth with minimum effort, even if you are starting without a subject. In meetings or places where you have to deliver on-topic responses with minimal preparation time, you will be able to drive your points home so that they stick. Humour will start to sneak into your presentations and your audiences will be impressed with your well structured memorable presentations. After this, wedding speeches, emceeing and running community events will be a breeze.
