A 4 SESSION SERIES - 55 minutes - 1.5 hours each session (virtual or in-person)
*Designed to help build the skills needed to be a more magnetic, engaging and confident speaker or facilitator*
What is your greatest fear, I asked in a room full of people - the first hand popped up...can you guess what they said? Yep - public speaking. Not just in a room of hundreds of people, but even in a room of 8 strangers or on the other end of a sales call. The fear of being strong in their voice, knowledge and expertise. This session supports you or your team in building more confident speaking skills.These sessions can be used as either individual support sessions or group seminars (up to a group of 8 per session cycle). These sessions can be done bi-weekly or monthly, with the overarching goal of having you feel more comfortable in a board room, on stage or facilitating your own work.
This workshop takes a process based approach to public speaking that doesn't look at "top tips and tricks to appear more confident on the stage", but actually does the work to ensure you have a toolkit of ways you can continue to become a more magnetic, grounded and secure speaker (regardless of who's in the room). We also talk about how to build more engagement and buy-in from your audience (without utilizing authoritarian tactics disguised as 'leadership'). You are able to do multiple cycles of the speaker sessions, but must complete at least one session before booking additional cycles.
