Ges Ray | Why should you build confidence in Public Speaking?

Why bother with the butterflies of presenting & public speaking? The clock is ticking; in a few moments you are committed to standing up and speaking in public, perhaps presenting at a client meeting, or a networking meeting, or speaking at an event… How confident are you feeling? How comfortable are you with speaking in public? Raring to go, or - as with more people than you would perhaps have thought – are you terrified. Mouth dry, heart racing, hands wringing wet, stomach churning, knees trembling, toes tingling… So why bother building these skills? Why not just send a slidedeck? You know why; you’ve been to enough events, conferences and meetings to know that the confident speaker is more likely to have their story heard, and become the ‘go to’ person in the room; we are hard wired to accord respect, authority, and actually listen to you when you speak confidently. And surely you want to be successful in taking your message to your audience, building your opportunities to win business? What will I learn from the Keynote and Workshops? In interactive, practical Keynote and workshops we will cover essential and effective techniques to help build your confidence in public speaking, and your audience’s confidence in you as a speaker, working on: • Your initial contact, your ‘handshake’ with the audience • Gaining your audience’s attention • Maintaining your audience’s attention Equipping the audience (for Keynote) and team (for workshop) with a toolkit for public speaking & presenting to a range of audiences, e.g. prospects, clients, networking or internal meetings.
