San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Uncover your brilliance and shine! In this four session class we will work with you to develop your confidence, ease, and mastery of speaking in front of groups. All sessions will be taught using ConnectAnd's unique, irreverent mix of experiential (improv) learning, individual coaching, and group feedback. Sessions include:
Be Your Real Self, Already! In the name of uncovering your authentic, powerful voice, liberate yourself from the rules you're supposed to follow. Gesture, say "um," get over your PowerPoint and just relate to the audience.
Listen Like a Wolf The best speakers are intense listeners! Become a magnet for truly engaged conversations that touch, move, and inspire your audiences to action.
Oh the Stories You'll Tell Drawing out and structuring your stories to illustrate key points is the most powerful tool you'll acquire to become an engaging speaker. Sharing more of WHO you are differentiates you from everyone else.
Plan to be Spontaneous (say what?) Know your content cold so that you can think on your feet and turn audience challenges to your advantage. Develop more confidence to be in the moment and give your audience what it needs to hear.
Features of the sessions:
- Videotaping of before and after presentations for each participant
- Group work, individualized coaching, and a fun, highly supportive environment (with snacks)
- Opportunities to be very silly, very sincere, and highly impactful
We will meet on four consecutive weeks, from 6-9 PM in Rocky Hill. Arrival is 6:00-6:15, class starts at 6:15.
Location: offices of the CT Association of Foster & Adoptive Parents, 2189 Silas Deane Highway.
Dates: Mondays 9/26, 10/3, 10/10, 10/17
Graduation ceremony to follow in the bar at Chuck's Steak House next door to the class site.
Note: There will be informal networking after every session at Chucks - we're building a tribe of authentic, engaging speakers to rock the world and eliminate boring, officious behavior from the podium.
