Presenting for the Terrified
Would you like to give presentations to groups of people, but get that horrible queasy feeling at the thought of it? Then maybe this is for you.
Tutor: Ian Jones
When: Four Monday afternoons 5, 12, 19 & 26 June from 1-3pm
Where: Training Room 3, The Whitehawk Inn, Whitehawk Road, Brighton.
The first principle of this workshop is that you will never be pressured to do anything that you don’t want to do. You can go at your own speed, and develop your skills in a way that suits you. If you want to come along and watch that’s fine. We all learn at different speeds and in different ways.
The key practical aim of the course is that by the last week, you are able to give a five minute presentation to an audience. Its your choice whether you actually want to present in front of an audience. The aim is to equip you so that you can if you want to.
Equally important goals are that
1. You are more aware of your blocks and issues when faced with an audience, and have skills and strategies to overcome them
2. You will develop skills of message crafting, so that your words (and images) have more impact
3. You value the significance of your own personal style, and begin to identify what it is.
You don’t need any prior qualifications or experience. Just a desire to learn something
Here’s what previous attendees have said about this course:
“I am so pleased I signed up for this course. Ian is a fantastic tutor and given the topic, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. The course was designed with a lovely pace and flow, and it genuinely left me feeling inspired after each session. I feel now like I have a varied skill set to draw upon for the future. Anyone with an interest in improving their public speaking and confidence skills should do this course! I wholeheartedly recommend it.” Melanie
