Do you get nervous, speak quickly or forget what you want to say when asked to speak in front of others? If so, you’re in good company! A fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias in the United States. Unfortunately, speaking in front of groups is a necessity for professional success in most jobs. Whether it’s leading a meeting, presenting a project proposal, or giving a sales presentation, the ability to speak with clarity and confidence in public speaking is critical to success.
If you’re interested in taking your public speaking skills to the next level, than mark your calendars and join us in Uniondale, Long Island on May 12 for our dynamic, interactive workshop, Public Speaking Made Easy! This innovative course helps attendees develop the skills and strategies needed to master the art of public speaking. Here are just a few of the tips that will be highlighted in the workshop:
Take a Breath!: One of the most important factors in delivering a strong presentation is using a clear, powerful voice that commands the attention of the audience. The foundation of a strong, dynamic voice is effective breathing. By taking deep breaths using good technique and timing, you’ll be able to power your voice for a stronger presentation that leaves an impact.
The Power of the Pause!: Learning how to pause correctly is a critical part of being an effective public speaker. Our Public Speaking Made Easy program provides training on how to vary the length and placement of your pauses in a deliberate way using our Strategic Marking System™. Well-placed pauses can help to improve the clarity of your speech and boost the overall impact of your message.
Eliminate Fillers: Most people pepper their speech with words like “um”, “uh”, and “like” in professional situations much more than they realize. Filler words like these can create an air of insecurity and significantly damage your credibility. We provide a unique 4-step technique to help you recognize and eliminate your filler habits.
