Presentation Skills Training: Impactful Public Speaking
Ladies and gentlemen,
please, may I have your attention?
Are you a leader, independent contractor, or a public figure, and do you often have to speak in front of people, giving speeches and lectures in front of the camera? Take a moment to honestly ask yourself: Are you absolutely satisfied with your performance? Are you completely confident and convincing? Do you use the whole range of vocal pitch? Does your body language support your message? Do you always prepare your presentation with the most appropriate structure? Do you keep your audience entertained without fancy tricks? Can you handle critical issues or irrelevant remarks confidently?
You might not know this: Speeches should leave your audience more speechless than you. People should be captivated by your presentation and by your energy. It should be your goal to move and to inspire your audience rather than to deliver pure facts and figures.
If these are things you would like to achieve, you should consider booking a Presentation Skills Training Session with me, either as a group or individually.
And one last thing ….You have just learned one of the ways to structure a speech. It is the AIDA Formula: Attract the attention of your audience (Attention) — Raise interest by focusing on and by demonstrating advantages and benefits (Interest) — Convince people that they want and desire what you are offering and that it will satisfy their needs (Desire) — Lead the audience towards taking action (Action).

What’s the big deal about public speaking? Old books will tell you that there’s no reason why you should be afraid to give a public speech.
For a long time, the understanding was that people were afraid because they weren’t prepared. So, the whole focus was spent on being as well prepared as possible. And preparation meant the technical part of presenting. Do it again and again and everything will be fine.

The voice is a reflection of the personality. When a person speaks evidence of their age, gender, race, education, health and environment is shown. The voice provides a glimpse into the innermost psychology: emotions such as anger, joy or fear change our voices. With vocal pitch, intonation or melody, we also get snippets of a person’s personality. We can see how they are as a person, how they want to be, how authentic they are. It’s not just clothing that tells you a lot about someone but their voice says a lot too.read more
