Speaking with ease

“Your stomach is queasy, your palms are sweaty, your mind has gone blank about your opening lines and your mind wanders to negative thoughts…”

Recognise any of this? While we all can feel nervous for public speaking to a more or lesser extent, we don't really train in dealing with the stress and discomfort and we don't learn how we can decrease the influence it has on our presentation skills. Isn't that silly? Time to make a change! This workshop consist of 4 sessions in which you will learn strategies for staying calm and feeling better about presenting to an audience and improve your presentation skills. Topics include: preparation, structure, non-verbal communication, voice and interaction with audience. The tips and exercises will definitely make you better prepared for presenting your ideas!

For period 2 both courses are fully booked.
