Structure

This course will follow a structure of relaxation/meditation exercises and warm-up exercises - leading into speaking exercises and speeches. Expect warm-ups, feedback and plenty of speaking opportunities.

What to expect from this course

The 8 pillars of public speaking are:

· Breath

· Pace

· Voice

· Physicality (body language and eye contact)

· Content (structure)

· Intention

· Emotions

· Tone variety

A large focus of this course will be on the elements of Intention, Emotions and Tone Variety. We aim to reach a place, where our speakers can easier tap into their emotions to fuel their speeches with stronger deliveries to learn how to inspire people. In addition to these elements we will be practicing:

· Stage Presence

· Story Telling

· Speaking with Passion

· Honesty and Authenticity

The latter half of the course will focus on maintaining and building the audience’s energy. We will learn and explore the dynamics of attracting an audience’s attention and learn how to sustain and grow this energy. It is vitally important that we do not loose our audience’s attention by dropping the energy that we have built between the speaker and the audience.

We will constantly monitor your progress throughout this course and discuss them with you. Tailored-made exercises will be made for each speaker, depending on your needs. Throughout the course there will be many opportunities to prepare speeches to gain as much practice as possible.

Speaking opportunity

At the end of the course you will be offered the opportunity to present a final presentation to a live audience of approximately 40 people. (This will not be compulsory, but simply an opportunity for those who are willing to take it).

Our Philosophy

A small note on 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 express and grow more of their authentic selves. In the class we aim to identify what is authentic and natural to our speakers and we focus on bringing 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 fears and anxieties to prosper. Hence, our goal is to help people reach a place of self-worth, self-love and self-acceptance. In short learning to be vulnerable is a big theme underlying our philosophy.

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.
