Contents of workshop
Understanding the factors that can create stage or situation fear – As soon as participants understand the factors that hold them back, are not real, it can remove a mountain of self-inflicted pressure.
How to create a memorable speech in ten minutes – Mind maps are used to visualise the total scope of the information, then refine this to a presentation mind map which focuses on the three to four components that the audience will remember as they walk out the door.
The principals of connecting with your audience – Around 80% of our connection with an audience is through the audience subliminally interpreting the presenter’s body language. This segment makes the participants aware of how to present to a public meeting, staff meeting or to a client, making that connection.
Responding to impromptu questions with confidence. – This is about learning, not to think faster, but to give yourself a second or two to formulate a direction, create a smooth flowing body on the run, then coming back and reinforcing the opening statement on the close.
