Rhetoric & Presentation I


The presentation training Rhetoric & Presentation I is a basic training in which you learn to plan and give convincing speeches and presentations. You will be trained in essential rhetorical skills to make an impact.

Basic Training: Public Speaking


Speeches in front of employees and company meetings, openings, product launches, presentations to customers and congress participants — the art of speech and persuasion has to be learned. Unless you are originally from Athens and are directly related to the author of De Oratore, or if you won every argument with your parents from the age of three on because you ate alphabet spaghetti for dinner …

If you do not already possess brilliant oratory skills, then you can take your first steps as a professional speaker by joining the seminar Presentation Skills I. There you will learn the basics of rhetoric and of presentation. You will find out how you are perceived by the audience. The objective of the training session is to speak skillfully, authentically and with confidence. This will enable you to deliver your message well, without becoming tongue-tied and dry-mouthed.

  • Use effective, straight to the point language
  • Develop better body language

  • Manage your voice effectively
  • Respond to questions and objections directed at you
  • Deal with stage fright
  • Win with humor and personality
  • Use communication psychology
  • Syndicate different perspectives
  • Practice, practice, practice!



You will learn the basics of rhetoric and presentation skills and will be able to prepare speeches and presentations effectively and to present them autonomously. With regular exercises, you can optimize your posture, articulation, voice and along with many helpful tips and tricks head towards that winning appearance. With all the practical exercises you can increase your courage and even enjoy being a public speaker.
