What are presentation skills lessons?
This is probably the most sought after training that we offer. Particularly if you work in a corporate environment, presentations are the bread and butter of your day job. But at the same time, this is probably the biggest block for most individuals. Whether you’re looking to improve your engagement levels or you are simply wanting to level your ability to deliver information to your target audience, building your clarity, confidence and conviction is key.
Articulation is the formation of clear and distinct sounds within speech, diction relates to the choice and use of words, while pronunciation is defined as the way a word is said. All of these elements can affect your speech, and through elocution lessons, your articulation will become more defined, your diction will become clearer and pronunciation of words will be corrected.
Presenting & Delivering
A lot of people will focus on getting their information out on time, but this is regrettably the wrong way to view your presentations. The key is to focus on your audience and what you want them to feel, know and do. Further to this, you always want to tell a story and no matter what your role at work, EVERY presentation has a story behind it.
Public Speaking & Communication Skills
Ever felt nervous before doing a speech at work? Ever had a dry throat as you practice your best man’s speech? Public speaking is the act of performing or presenting a speech to an audience (small or large), whilst communication skills cover conversational technique. Through elocution lessons, you will learn the different skills and techniques required to present speeches effectively, while also discovering how to present yourself in one-to-one situations.
The above are just some examples of how taking presentation skills lessons can you help you grow as a person and develop life-long skills to support both your personal and work endeavors. Although every client is different in their history, feelings and goals, we have found from talking to thousands of people across the world that the majority will go through the following stages prior to contacting us for help:
There’s a block, that has existed for a number of years (or even decades), living deep inside your brain. In fact, so much so, you may have ignored it or been unaware of it’s existence with no means to fight it.
On the outside, you may struggle to be understood by colleagues, fail to secure the deal in a sale or simply point-blank refuse to engage in speaking.
Inside, you may feel anxious, struggle to feel comfortable or even lose hope because of your speech.
You’re not the only person to feel this way, and you’re not the only person who SHOULDN’T have to feel this way.
The process to work with us is quick and easy. Depending on availability, you can go from applying to enrolling in a matter of days.
