Public Speaking

The term Public Speaking fills many people with dread but is becoming an increasingly indispensable skill for today’s world – both from a business and a personal perspective (think of those infamous wedding speeches). 

This module helps to take the fear out of public speaking by focusing on the art of body language, providing nerve-busting techniques, sharing tips for building rapport with the audience, and even providing strategies for handling question and answer sessions if needed. 

Public Speaking is the art of working to inspire and engage larger audiences with a particular topic.  If you feel that your group would benefit more from learning how to convince smaller audiences within a commercial perspective, you might want to consider our Presentation module instead.  The Public Speaking module also works well with the Presence and Impact module and/or Influencing module.  Please contact us to discuss the needs of your group in more detail.
