Course Content

Why As lectures, we need to consider how to perform the content of our teaching in a way that attracts attention and commitment from the students .

From the sound of our voice and the signals from our body language, our listeners will make judgment about our attitude, personality, our sincerity and credibility. 

Within few seconds the listener subconsciously decide to listen or not, to get involved and take action or not. If we can´t manage these skills, the listeners might get confused, get the wrong interpretation or “check out” mentally.

Therefore, the importance to get to steer the voice, mindset and body language, in the right direction is an important skill to learn to make that impact. 

Voice Any oral communication involves the voice, but most people are not aware, how the voice produces sound and how to use the “special effects” that gives the words the interpretation the speaker wants to deliver.

Body language Our body language is like an open book, it is important that we are present when teaching, to connect our body – language with the content taught to get it aligned. You will get simple tips how to get a natural, positive and powerful body language that match your personality.

Feeling good Being aware how to cope with nervousness, find your power, presence and engagement, it´s all about mind, body and respiration.

The extra spices To create great starts and endings are essentials - as well as using silence and pausing learn the tricks. 

Preparation: Please prepare a short introduction of yourself approximately 2 minutes. You will get further information when signed up for the course.
