Event description

Description

Book your FREE ticket for our public speaking workshop. You will learn some tips on how to handle your fears, get involved in some breathing and relaxation exercises, energy building activities, voice technique, followed by speaking games, story telling and optional impromptu speeches.

We help people overcome their public speaking anxieties in a very friendly, supportive and non-judgmental environment, where we encourage people to make mistakes and learn from them.

Confident public speaking is comprised of the following 8 elements:

· Breath

· Pace

· Voice projection

· Physicality (body language and eye contact)

· Content (structure and choice of content)

· Intention and congruency

· Emotions

· Tonal variety

Public speaking is a very useful skill to develop in life. It not only helps you to do things such as presentations at work and university but also develops your inner qualities in other areas of life allowing you also to improve your social relationships with people, as you learn how to express yourself better.


What to expect from this workshop:

The workshop follows the structure of first having warm up’s and stress diffusing exercises, after which we will play some speaking games and you will have an optional choice of practicing some impromptu speaking. These exercises will increase in difficulty (subject to the speakers comfort zone), as the event progresses.


Should you prepare or bring anything:

No. Just bring is a willingness to grow and challenge yourself! That is the best to overcome your fears. Water will be provided.


Our Philosophy:

A note about our philosophy on how we approach in helping people to overcome their fears; We do not mould our speakers into a one fits all model, where we try to shape you into someone who you are not. Our principles are grounded in authenticity, where we encourage our attendees to get in touch with themselves on a deeper level, which as a result enhances their communication skills and delivery. In the class we aim to identify what is authentic and natural to our speakers and we focus on brining more of that out, which enables our attendees to identify their natural speaking style. The way we achieve this is by encouraging our participants to explore being vulnerable and experiment with how it feels to have 'your guard' down. We believe being vulnerable = strength and not weakness. Instead of always attempting to be someone who we are not, which forces us to hide certain qualities from the public we encourage our attendees to be themselves, because what we are is already as great and 'full' as we can be. When we aim to be more, or change/hide our weaknesses we allow our fear of public speaking, alongside other socially-derived anxieties to prosper. Hence, our goal is to help people reach a place of self-worth, self-love and self acceptance and VULNERABILITY is a big theme underlying our philosophy.
