Executive Public Speaking Skills Workshop

Why is Public Speaking so critical in our lives?
Communication is the backbone of our society. It allows us to form connections, influence decisions, and motivate change. Without communication skills, the ability to progress in the working world and in life, itself, would be nearly impossible.
Ironically, Public Speaking is one of the most important and most dreaded forms of communication. Glossophobia or speech anxiety, is the most common fear people have across the globe. Throughout primary school, it is easy to be the student who sits in the back of the classroom and avoids raising his or her hand to dodge such situations. But in the working world, public speaking is a vital skill to have and to hone. It affects simple, everyday interactions between coworkers, bosses and employees, marketing professionals and clients, etc., and it can have an enormous impact on your career path and your level of success in your industry.
It’s a great opportunity for this interactive workshop where we’ll together with public speaking experts, explore and equip the participants with skills to speak confidently and authentically to any number of people, whatever the settings!!
According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right?
This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.
– Jerry Seinfeld

What are public speaking skills?
Controlling your breathing
One of the most important things to think about when giving a speech is controlling your breathing. Take slow, relaxing breaths before you start to keep your body relaxed. If you can feel yourself getting nervous and worked up, just take a second to take a great, deep breath, and continue.
Controlling your body language
When we’re talking to someone, they understand more than just what our words are saying, but our bodies, too. If you stand tall and straight, then it makes you seem and feel more confident. Try not to shift your weight too much between your feet, and be as expressive as possible. If you seem passionate about what you’re saying, then your audience will feel passionate, too.
Taking your time
There’s no need to rush when you’re giving a speech. Keeping it slow will help keep you relaxed and focused on what you’re saying. Go too fast, and no one will understand you and you’re likely to lose your place in your speech.
There’s no point giving an excellent speech if no one can tell what you’re saying. Pronounce your words properly, and avoid filler phrases like ‘um’ and ‘like’ (a difficult feat for many a child and teenager, I know). Better to pause and think before you speak, than fill the silence with meaningless words. You will need to speak loudly enough too especially if you don’t have a microphone, so consider some vocal warm-ups.
Know your audience
Your content and delivery have to take into account the people listening to you. Are jokes appropriate to relax the audience? What language and level of detail on your topic will suit them? Your speech is all about getting your ideas or opinion across, so always have your listeners in mind even though they may be mute.
How to develop public speaking skills
- Writing the speech
- Practise, practise, practise
- Be a superhero
Let’s run through a few more suggestions for improving your oratory skills:
- Use repetition carefully to emphasise key points.
- Try to be concise and direct, edit out any filler.
- Tell stories, add personal touches, and let your passion shine through.
- Don’t forget to smile and make eye contact with your audience.
- Structure your speech but try to surprise your listeners.
- Emotional responses can be stronger than logical, intellectual ones. Appeal to people’s sympathy or empathy.
