Public Speaking Greatness

The stage is yours! In this workshop, we give you the keys to communicate your message in an engaging, authentic and dynamic way. We'll hone each of the aspects of public speaking:

  • Verbals - what you’re saying - the facts and information
  • Para-Verbals - how you’re saying the words including tone, pitch, cadence & volume
  • Non-Verbals - the bulk of communication happens here - body language, eye contact, gestures, energy & movement and so much more

This workshop is a "down & dirty" interactive play & practice event. We’ll work on delivering your message to specific audiences, the concept of "owning the space" and growing your confidence. We’ll provide the material, or you can, and we’ll play, practice and then we’ll do it again.
