As a professional speaker for over 5 years, delivering my message throughout Europe and South America, I know how important is "to own the stage" by engaging with the audience and delivering a message which is assertive, effective and authentic.
We all know how important is to practice, practice, practice, but it is also necessary to prepare systematically knowing our strengths and weakeness as speakers.
We believe everyone's stories matter and all have to be shared. However, by ignorance, i.e. not knowing, many people believe that a good presentation, a good speech is the one with ALL the details and as much information as possible.
I'm sure you've been in presentations where the speakers overloaded you, the audience, with so much information and details that when you realised your mind was wandering around and you couldn't recall a word of what was said.
Unfortunately this is more common that it should, and in fact a norm in certain professional environments. Speakers, presenters, have no systematic approach on how to prepare their presentation, and no clue on how to engage the audience to convey their message.
And worse, if their message is related to a product and/or service they want to offer, we don't need to be a genius to know the result, right?
This is why we created this course.
We have crafted a full day training to help you to overcome all those bad habits and help you to become a speaker who will be remembered by the audiences you speak to.
In this training course you will:
develop awareness on your current presentation skills and how people around you perceive you - your strengths and weaknesses
get in touch with the emotions behind the words and how to use it; learn the power of storytelling
stage presence: understand the nuances and importance of non-verbal communication - body language, gestures
vocal projection: modulation, pauses
At the end of the training, you will be able to:
balance your current weaknesses by emphasizing your strengths
craft a speech which reflects your own way of expressing yourself and your thoughts
be more in control of your non-verbal comunication and use the appropriate gestures to convey your message
use pauses instead of filler words
craft a speech which has a clear structure, therefore, delivers a clear message to your audience.
At the end of the training, if you desire so, you will have the opportunity to present a short speech to a board professional speakers. Your speech will be orally and written evaluated. This valuable feedback will be given to you as a reference and support in your speaking development.
As an extra bonus from us, the three best speakers will be automatically selected to participate as speaker in one of our next AWE Summit events.
