Many of us find speaking in public a stressful experience, making active attempts to try to avoid it. A well delivered speech can however, provide an invaluable opportunity to impress an audience and set the standard for all your communication. Winning with Words offers two insights into the importance of public speaking. On 26 September, there will a short workshop exploring the impact of what you say in public and how good communication can have a positive impact in everyday life. The workshop will introduce the key methods of formulating persuasive communication. A follow up masterclass on 7 & 14 November will take you through the full construction of a powerful speech. Sessions all use practical exercises, video examples and plenty of discussion.
