Course Description

Public Speaking Skills Diploma Awarded Course

Going beyond the fear!

There are very few people who can confidently and successfully speak in public without some form of preparation or previous training.

Public speaking for many people is the result of the path that they are on such has their employment or working role and somewhere along the lines they will have to stand up and speak to an audience whether that is a small group or large crowd of people.

Some people in their working roles are literally forced into having to public speak otherwise they will lose their job.

Most successful speakers have watched DVDs and videos of others doing it to learn the skills but still the nerves and the stomach butterflies turn for them.

This course will show you how to deal with all of that and go beyond your fear.

You are not alone with your fear; you share it with many others in the same boat as you.

Proper preparation is the key to public speaking!

Have you ever thought of filming yourself performing in front of an audience?

Filming yourself would be a good start to see yourself at work which will help you to pick up on your faults, hesitations and nerves.

Sometimes feeling nervous doesn’t always show to others so seeing your nerves hidden well can give you a lift.

Have you ever thought of standing and practising your speeches and delivering them as loud as you can in the most bold and dramatic demonstrative way to the Mirror? Almost in a Shakespearean delivery!

Repetitively practising your speech so that you can learn it off by heart is essential.

Preparation is essential!

As Anthony Hopkins (actor) once said, speaking is acting and acting is speaking – to get in touch with your inner actor and become your own actor to become the role you are playing so that there is then no acting, there is just you becoming the role, becoming the speaker, moving through the fear and becoming just the content of the speech.

You may find you get in touch with your more adventurous and extroverted side, your onstage persona and once you do, this will grow and develop.

Become a great storyteller or a soothsayer and deliver a children’s story in a Shakespearean manner in front of your mirror. Go for it, deliver little red Riding Hood with a full on display with great body language and grand loud hand movements dramatically accentuating each sentence as though you were the greatest Shakespearean actor of all time. Yes, we know this is only little Red Riding Hood but you get the idea!

Your appearance is important!

Your appearance should be crisp and sharp, maybe a new outfit that you feel really good in.

Your default face should be with a smile!

The smile should be on your face all the time.

Anxiety and fear!

Your anxieties and fears should be a thing of the past once you complete this course. Public speaking for most people is energy sapping and stomach churning. It doesn’t have to be any more.
