Hello and welcome all to the 5 week public speaking beginners course! We have a very friendly, supportive and non-judgmental environment, which is a great place to begin your public speaking journey.
This course will follow an approach of having relaxation/mediation exercises in the first hour, fun and slightly challenging exercises in the second hour, leaving the final hour for improvised speeches. This course has a very practical approach giving the speakers plenty of opportunities to speak. We believe practice makes perfect.
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.
Even if you are not interested particularly in public speaking, this course is great for building confidence.
What to expect from this course
Each week we will cover and practice in detail each of the following pillars of a confident public speaker:
· Breath and pace
· Voice projection
· Physicality (body language and eye contact)
· Content (structure)
· Intention and congruency
· Emotions and tone variety
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 his/her's needs. In the last class of the course you will have the opportunity to prepare a speech for the class. If you have done well and you feel comfortable to advance you will have the opportunity to join the next stage improvers course.
Who is the course aimed at
This course is aimed at people who fear public speaking and are complete beginners with no or very small public speaking experience.
Shy, anxious and introverted individuals are most welcome!
