Indicative content and outline

Sessions will be tailored to the audience, context and environment. They will normally include practical development in a range of aspects that make up the basis of effective oral communication covering a range of situations from 1 to 1 client meetings, to leading team meetings, to employment interviews, to formal and informal presentations and pitches, to teaching at any level, to ordinary social interaction. The aspects covered are:

  • confidence and presence
  • self-awareness and empathy
  • engagement
  • the use of space
  • body language
  • other non-verbal communication
  • breath control
  • voice projection
  • clear articulation

Sessions combine group discussion, active and kinaesthetic learning in the form of games, role plays and physical exercises.
