Public Speaking

Deliver a confident and persuasive message
Command the attention of your audience
Learn to control and overcome anxiety and fear

Public Speaking has been called ‘The world’s number one fear’. Businesses can’t afford to overlook this when asking employees to speak in front of clients. Even the most seemingly confident business people can be reduced to a mess when put in front of an audience. This can be overcome with the right training and preparation.

One of the best ways to overcome fear is to confront it. To this end, we offer in-house training in public speaking by setting up a forum for your staff to face their fears and become better public speakers. In addition to the problem of fear, some people simply don’t know how to control their voice. People often don’t realise what a powerful tool the voice can be. If you can master complete control of your voice, you have a much better chance of controlling what your audience takes from your speech.

Your voice can be used to highlight and underline key points; it can be used to shock, persuade or entertain. Above all, you can use your voice to maintain your audience’s attention. This can be achieved by using the following methods:

  • Appropriate use of ice breakers; including anecdotes, shocking or controversial statistics and adept use of quotes
  • Interacting with your audience through question and answer sessions- these can include ‘raise your hand’ or ‘stand up’ if… moments in order to keep the audience engaged and alert
  • Effective use of vocal variation

Voice Projection:

We teach our students how to use their diaphragm to breathe more deeply and project their voice without straining the muscles in their neck or throat. This is extremely important when speaking to large audiences.
