“Why on earth people who have something to say that is worth hearing, should not take the trouble to learn how to make it heard, is one of the strange mysteries of modern life. Their methods are as reasonable as to try to pour some precious stuff through a non-conducting pipe, which could be openend.”
Artur Conan Doyle
The ability to present your ideas, plans and projects in a persuasive and confident way is one important key to success and will influence your life and career. Be it lectures to students, presentations to colleagues or speeches to a room full of near strangers…. We all want to shine or at least get through it with some dignity.
In this seminar we will focus on what you need to give an authentic and storming presentation. We will spend time on what you are presenting and time on how you are presenting it – both aspects matter.
It is important to pay attention to detail and choose your words carefully. At the same time you need to know yourself and understand your audience. We will work with the following questions:
How to build your inner strength and stability?
How to communicate with originality and clarity?
How to find your voice?
How to speak with impact, authority and power?
How to prepare your content?
How to influence, engage and inspire your audience?
How to get results?
The seminar will provide you with basic competences to speak so others listen, to cope with anxiety and to win hearts and minds.
