In August 2014 a fantastic group of people met in Dallas, TX to overcome their fear of public speaking. Since it was a presentation class of eight, each participant got more one-on-one coaching. They each also got more time to spend on the different modules.
In addition, the atmosphere was more relaxed which helped the participant feel more relaxed. One of the class members told me, “I was provided the tools to build my confidence in a relaxed atmosphere and the class was informative and very helpful to move forward in giving concise presentations”.
These two-day presentation skills classes aim to help participants increase their comfort in presenting. But the classes also help participants deliver effective public presentations. I got great feedback from this group! Most seemed to benefit from the preparation and delivery advice that we gave them.
The group learned a lot from the adding enthusiasm exercise, sometimes by doing things a little differently can achieve different and positive results, “The presentation practice is a great way to learn and the content of material in the class is outstanding and I will recommend throughout my company”. Many expressed success in addressing their fear of public speaking. It was a great group, very enthusiastic, funny, and outspoken, “Great program structure and the feedback made the group very comfortable and therefore I got more out of the class than I expected”.
