3-Day Weekend Workshop
Elevate Your English – The Art of Public Speaking
This public speaking course is designed for professionals who already use English in their work and who wish to fine-tune their skills to better serve them on the global stage.
Participants will each come to this practical workshop with a presentation they hope to polish and hone. This may be material they have presented in the past or something they are preparing with an eye on the future. Through the progressive arc of the course, students will be introduced to basic technical concepts around vocal production and presence. They will observe themselves and others, noticing how they tend to breathe, how their breath gets stuck, how they hold their bodies in front of an audience, where they tend to focus during a presentation, and the negative messages they tend to feed themselves. There will be body-alignment and breath work as well as linguistic work in pronunciation, rhythms and grammar.
This course is perfect for university professors who are presenting their research at international congresses, executives who travel widely representing their firms, those preparing presentations as part of their official exams, and candidates for the European Doctorate. This 16-hr course is also a foundational piece to upcoming retreats and workshops for further study in achieving physiological ease with speaking, and how to engage an audience and make the greatest impact.
