Workshop title : Public Presentations - Influencing People


Public Presentations - Influencing People

"It is not important what you say, but how you say it!"
"The effectiveness of what we say, depends entirely on how it is we're talking"
"We are talking very much even then, when we're not talking anything yet!"

The workshop is especially for those all who see the importance of influencing people and who have always wanted to act with confidence and pleasure in front of any number of people and who that pleasure never could discover. But also for those who want to practice their public appearance and influence on groups or to verify it or possibly improve. A lot of people are afraid to appear before groups. Others like to stay in the focus and talk, but they not always achieve their goals. Knowledge of the principles how to act in front of groups is important, it gives already some peace of mind. Even more peace of mind and confidence gives awareness of potential pitfalls and knowing how to avoid them. These two aspects are responsible for our confidence while performing, because only when we feel confident then we are convincing and than we can influence others.

And what exactly is it? This we will find out in the workshop.

We also explore how to deal with possible stress.
