Even if you mainly work with technology, there is no avoiding the occasional presentation. As an expert, you know what to say. But there’s more to presenting than just a good story. Maybe your voice is too soft, or you don’t know what to do with your hands. Maybe standing in front of a group feels so exposed. All this makes getting your message across more difficult than you'd like it to be.
The key to being a powerful speaker is presence: how you use your body and your voice. In this one-day boot camp, professional actor and speaking coach Alejandra Nettel will teach you all the tricks to maximize the impact of your message. Drawing on thirty years of experience and a sharp eye for what does and doesn't work, Ms. Nettel will give each participant personal, tailored advice as you practice what you've learned.
This intensive course is designed for technology professionals engaged in complex system development.
The number of participants is limited, to make sure each person receives full attention and enough opportunity for personal feedback and practice.
In this intensive full-day course, you'll learn:
Throughout the day, personal training and advice as you practice what you've learned will ensure that you go home able to present like a pro.
Action learning, lectures, exercises, discussions, role-plays.
Participants receive an SSF/HTI certificate after completing the course homework and final assignment.
The program provides a theoretically sound foundation, then turns it into practical action using participants' specific, real-world situations. As a result, you can apply what you've learned the very next day. At the end of the course, you'll have a complete personal action plan to take forward.
Before the course begins, you'll carry out a mini 360-degree survey, asking your colleagues what they feel are your strong and weak points as a communicator. During the course, we'll use this feedback as the personal basis from which you'll start learning.
