Workshop Overview

A week by week breakdown to improving your public speaking skills

  • Week 1 - Preparation and Speech Structure

    Master the various speech structures and proper preparation techniques. For any presentation to be effective the presenter must be clear on their purpose and who they are presenting too. They can then use this information to identify the optimal structure for their presentation. In week one we focus our efforts on ensuring we are preparing our presentations correctly.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

  • Q.Do I have to complete the projects?

    A.Each week you will receive the lessons and the invitation to the group coaching call. However for you to get the most out of the workshop we actively encourage students to complete the projects each week.

  • Q.Can I complete two (or more) projects in a week?

    A.Yes, if for example, you have been unwell at unable to complete your projects in their allocated weeks you can catch up by completing multiple projects in a week. However we do encourage you to keep in contact with the course instructor to get the feedback from one project before starting the next project (to maximise your skill development).

  • Q.I am nervous about presenting to an audience at work - can I complete my projects by presenting to my webcam only?

    A.We set no minimum audience requirements for each project. However the closer you make the projects to a real life situation the greater the benefit for you.

  • Q.How do you review the presentations?

    A.We ask each student to record their presentation on their smart phone or web cam and upload it to Youtube or Vimeo. We ask that students make the videos private so that only the instructor and other students on the course can view the presentation (in the private students group) to ensure only positive and constructive feedback is provided.

  • Q.What feedback will I receive?

    A.All the feedback provided by the instructor will be constructive. Your instructor will share all the strengths you have and are displaying in your public speaking, and provide you with areas that you can look to work on for your next presentation with specific tips and advice to help you. In conjunction to the video feedback on your presentation you can also gain practise and immediate feedback on specific skills in the live coaching sessions
