This workshop or webinar will help you develop effective communication skills that you can apply to any writing or speaking project.
You will learn how to organize your thoughts, write them out so that you can remember them without notes and tell your story with confidence. You will learn how to:
Organize your thoughts so you get right to the point when you write or speak
Write out your story so it has an effective beginning, middle and end
Speak with confidence in front of a group, and without notes
Whatever media format or project size you want to work with in the future will not matter because the communication fundamentals you will learn apply to all projects. For example, the skills can help you with:
Telling a bedtime story
Sharing an experience with others
Making a sales presentation
Leading a meeting
Attending a job interview
Writing and giving a speech
Writing an article or a book
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.
