Event description

Description

When we speak, people not only listen to our words but they “read” our voices. They pay attention to our pace, our tone, our inflections, and our fluency. Our voices also convey emotional meanings of joy, sarcasm, anger, affection, or confidence. When you speak are you able to genuinely convey and translate these emotions when speaking?

The nonverbal messages (facial expressions, gestures, posture) you transmit also have a huge impact on the quality of your personal and professional relationships. The way you communicate affects how others see you, how well they like and respect you, and whether or not they trust you.

It is not just what you say; it is how you say it.

The programme led by Branka Zei Pollermann PhD, founder and director of Vox Institute, uses the most up-to-date research on voice to recalibrate the way we communicate in our private and our professional lives.

Programme Objectives

1. To identify personal strengths and weaknesses in speech communication.
2. To choose the speaking style that enhances credibility and persuasiveness.
3. To acquire vocal skills appropriate for speaking at meetings (video/audio conf.),
presenting facts and figures, public speaking, and Face-to-Face communication.
4. To master the strategic use of nonverbal behaviour (facial expressions, gestures,
posture, gaze).
5. To structure the content of presentations in a way that raises interest and maintains
attention

Programme Topics

• The role of verbal, vocal and nonverbal behaviour in speech communication.
• Three main vocal skills: chunking, emphasis, intonation.
• Vocal style in public speaking and in face-to-face interaction.
• Verbal aspects: vocabulary (emotional semantic networks); choice of
argumentation strategy (blends of rational and emotional strategies).
• Nonverbal behaviour (facial expressions, gestures, gaze, posture) and their
strategic usage in speech communication.
• Congruence between verbal content and nonverbal behaviour.
• The Pyramid principle: structure of talks
• Most efficient rhetorical figures in speaking and writing.
