You want to give a speech to share your passion, insights, inspiration and information. Or you have to deliver a sales or team-building talk at work. But how many presentations have you seen that have the right ingredients yet somehow miss the mark? There is polite "golf clapping" but no real enthusiasm from the audience. Or they look like a "talking head", not a real person who connects with the clients.
On stage, even in the spotlight as a speaker, we are often hiding behind characters and personalities that have little to do with who we really are and what we really want to say.
So…come spend a weekend remembering yourself – the main ingredient to being an effective speaker! Whatever your hidden (or not so hidden) talents, we will expand on them and develop them in often surprising ways. Throughout this highly interactive course, you will discover your particular style and how to unleash your natural charisma (you do, too, have it)! Bringing this honesty to your performance ensures you will build trust and connection with your target audience.
This is not a regular speaking, acting or improv class, although we do use theater and improv games and exercises plus coaching tools to provide real-world experiences of being more present for your…..presentation! Try it for the first time or take your performance to the next level.
You may bring your written speech or presentation - or practice pieces will be provided. Video feedback, effective use of audio/visual aids, warm-up exercises to relax and focus, and memorization tips are included.
Did we mention that it's fun?!
The first speakers were our ancestors singing, dancing and telling stories around the campfire. Performing is in our genes so come rediscover your natural abilities.
Delilah Blake has been leading this class for over 20 years around the U.S. and Europe.
