Level 1 Workshop (One Day)
Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking
Learn how to confidently deliver
This workshop is for anyone who wants to:
On this workshop you will learn:
followed what you had taught me and went through the training folder again
and prepared my speech. I used the 'cue cards' and broke the speech down
into logical parts. I then rehearsed what I was going to say.
Dry mouth, flushed face, sweaty palm, knees shaking, hands shaking, fear of forgetting or losing your place, fear of not impressing the audience or losing them altogether...
In the 'Book of Lists', the number one fear most people had was the fear of public speaking. Fear of public speaking is quite common, but has a greater negative impact on our lives than other fears have. For example, if you have a fear of flying you can avoid this by choosing other means of transport; the fear of animals can, for the most part, be controlled by simply avoiding certain environments. However, communicating with others is unavoidable.
Learn in a Friendly Environment
Standing up and speaking to an audience can be very daunting. I have been doing this for over 30 years and I still get nervous. Why? Because I know that a lot depends on what I say in the next few minutes. However, my method of preparation ensures that the minute I start speaking, all my nerves disappear. There are psychological reasons why we all feel nervous doing this task. I will explain to you why this happens, and how you can reduce the impact of an 'attack of nerves'. This training workshop, held in a friendly and encouraging environment, aims to give you a consistent and repeatable system to create great presentations and to overcome the accompanying nerves.
The good news is that you are not alone. Most people, when making presentations, suffer from one or more of the above listed symptoms. The better news is that when you learn our SmarterBrain® System you will, over a period of time; reduce your fear and anxiety to an acceptable and workable level.
The First 3 Minutes
The first 3 minutes of a presentation is crucial. Paradoxically, the first 3 minutes is where most presenters struggle. We will show you how to make your first 3 minutes the most powerful part of your presentation.
Presentation anxieties are what we call 'performance' anxieties. You can have similar anxieties when taking part in competitive sports, acting in a play, perhaps even during a karaoke session!
The difference with the demands of presenting is that very often your job or promotion depends on your presentation skills.
The Reasons Behind It All
Performance anxieties occur because of an emotional change in our thinking. You will learn why your brain is 'hardwired' to over-react when you are called to make a presentation.
This workshop is not 'therapy'. It is a set of practical steps that will enable you to incrementally introduce a system of presenting that will improve your self confidence and your self esteem.
