"The energy was amazing and I truly witnessed your method do wonders. One of the guest/speakers, is extremely uncomfortable with public speaking and I was impressed with what you did with him in just 10 minutes." Esau Vazquez
"I love that you came to our club, Heart Centered Toastmasters in Culver City for our Open House. We got nothing but great reviews. Thanks for your workshop. Please feel free to come back again." Melody Mundy
Group workshops are designed so everyone in the audience who participates will get training in how to:
Organize their thoughts
Outline their message
Deliver a one-two minute speech
Individuals can pick their own topic or your group can chose it's own themes for everyone to work on. Participants will improve their communication skills and be able to apply what they learn to virtually any communication-related project.
The project media format or size will not matter because the communication fundamentals are all the same. For example, the skills can help with:
Leading a meeting
Making a sales presentation
Writing and giving a speech
Writing an article or a book
GROUP WORKSHOP FEATURES
The workshop is designed to fit any time period or any size group. Each workshop is divided into four parts:
1.Lecture. After a brief introduction explaining what students will learn, we cover a number of tips on organizing, writing and speaking. All of the tips are easy to remember.
2.Writing. Students will get work outlining and writing their speech. However, memorizing is kept to minimum. They will be trained in how to remember the key points of their message.
3.Speaking. Each student will have a chance to tell their story-without notes. The techniques covered make it easy to do. Speaking forces to students to communicate their thoughts.
4.Evaluating. Depending on the time available, we review highlights of the speeches and how they could be improved. We also review what students learned and how it affected their communication skills.
