Impromptu Speaking

Speaking off-the-cuff without preparation can be nerve racking. When we’re anxious, we sweat, we can’t think straight, we talk too quickly, we ramble. Unfortunately, none of these behaviors exudes the confidence and credibility we desire to exhibit.

 

The great news is there are practical strategies that you can apply to impromptu speaking situations that will help you to stay calm and will help you to make your message more powerful and coherent. If you utilize these tools for speaking on the fly, you will be more successful in meetings, interviews, Q + A sessions, and more.

 

Participants will learn:

  • Strategies to lower anxiety
  • Active listening techniques
  • Pausing for silent preparation and reducing annoying fillers
  • Three frameworks to structure your remarks

 

Participants will receive ample opportunity to practice and receive feedback from the instructor and their peers. Participants will also be filmed and will have the time to review the film for self-analysis. The class is fun, fast-paced, and interactive.

 

 

Format: 2 hours

 

Class Size: Workshop can work for small or large groups. Small group will get individualized feedback; but big groups will practice in small groups and get feedback from peers.
