Enhance Your Speaking Skills

COURSE NUMBER: LC-09


Enhance Your Speaking Skills Course Objectives

When you are asked to give a speech, do you wonder if the myth that great speakers are born, ‘not made’ is true? Do you wonder how some people can stand in front of an audience with no anxiety and give a moving, dynamic speech?

Well, the fact is that most people who are great speakers have spent years developing and practicing their skill. They know that more than 50% of the audience’s impression relates to what they’ve seen and not what the speaker said.

Being able to present ideas in a clear and concise way helps you to become more effective in everyday situations such as chairing a meeting, making a presentation, teaching a course or work process, making a speech, accepting an award and speaking at social functions.
