Welcome to our new Thursdays Public speaking event.
-- This event is for beginners.
Come and get the chance to speak in a supportive and friendly environment. Public Speaking will boost your confidence and give you more power to speak and to be listened to in both your personal and professional life.
-- What makes this public speaking session different from others you ask?
There is a strong emphasis on self-expression, creativity, trial and error, and most importantly, speaking practice!
-- What will you gain from this event?
- Gain confidence by overcoming your fear of public speaking
- Learn to think on your feet with our Impromptu speaking format
- Get feedback and improve your public speaking with a real audience
- Tips and opportunities to practice: body language, voice, tone, pitch, uses of stories, use of pauses, humour, etc...
-- Here's how it works:
*I may choose to change the format from time to time based on numbers, and to practice different aspects of public speaking in order to keep it challenging*
You will put your name in a hat/bowl and when your name is chosen, you will be asked to perform.
You will speak for 2 minutes on a random topic given by the audience. This is called an impromptu speech.
We will do 2-3 rounds of speaking followed by a feedback session at the end of the workshop.
-- Public Speaking suggestions:
TIP: Give your impromptu speech the following 3 sections below.
1. Introduction ("Today, I'm going to talk about....")
2. Body ("Here is my personal experience....")
3. Conclusion ("So, my key message is ....")
Each speech is to be 2 minutes long.
You're not obligated to speak, although I may strongly encourage you to do so.
-- What to bring: *There are no mandatory necessities which you must bring*.
-- Dress Code: *There is no dress code*. However, it is best practice that you wear the attire for the occasion which you are practicing for.
