Speaking in public

2-day workshop
OPGELET: dit is een Engelse workshop!

Date: 6 Sep 2017 From: 09:00 To: 17:00 Location: Ghent
Date: 15 Sep 2017 From: 09:00 To: 17:00 Location: Ghent


During this workshop the trainer throws, as your personal director, his theatre experience in the battle to awaken the speaker in you. You will work all day with concrete techniques, used by actors in theatre.

Little by little you will acquire the insight and skills to purposefully play and control your audience. You become a thinking speaker, where your authenticity and personality remain the most important criteria.

The best news is: you can learn it.


Day 1 - the basic techniques

You will practice on concrete, manageable techniques. The individual coaching and feedback guarantee an improvement of your speaker’s skills:

  • Paying attention to body language
  • Working on eye contact
  • Playing with silence and rhythm
  • Building in surprise effects
  • Adapting tone and volume
  • Choosing an original approach
  • Day 2 - communicate your intentions

    You will learn to combine the techniques of day 1, so that you eventually fill in your role differently as a public speaker. You will no longer speak in words, but in clear ideas and intentions that you share with your audience, by learning to control your Subtext (both spoken and unspoken messages)

    Further more, you learn to control the following, more external aspects:

  • PowerPoint
  • How to handle difficult questions
