Impromptu Speaking

 

… “Do not you want to say a few words about your experiences?”
… “May I ask you for a short statement on the subject?”
… “Did I forget to let you know that we announced you as a speaker?”

 

 

 

— That was never mentioned! But now I need a speech … quickly!

 

Impromptu speeches are the pinnacle of communication because they are kept out of the situation without any preparation. …

Completely free and without any preparation? In fact, you can train a lot beforehand: namely, all the techniques that make it possible to spontaneously confidently and convincingly expose your words to the public. In the future, you will no longer have to fake a fainting spell or tip over a glass of red wine over your white shirt so you do not have to go on stage.

With practice, you will have only one problem with blatant language: Hardly anyone will believe that you have not been in the study room for at least a day with lots of coffee. But that’s acceptable, right?

Your trainer

Since 1998, I support people in presenting themselves and their message convincingly. As part of the training for impromptu speeches, I pass on my experience for spontaneous speeches. It’s my favorite training. When speaking off the cuff, everything comes together: Emotional state management, presentation skills, body language, voice, etc. 

Anyone who has learned to enjoy impromptu speaking becomes generally calmer and more sovereign. Even well-prepared speeches and presentations will be more compelling with this knowledge. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology, communication and presentation skills.

Articles about impromptu speaking

 

The first rule of rhetoric: Let us start with the basics of speaking.

Does everyone have to say something about everything? In my opinion, the most important rule of rhetoric and good communication style is that those who have nothing to say should shut up.
