Body language and simple structures

  • The Apple Tree 45 Mt Pleasant London, WC1X 0AE United Kingdom

If you say: "My subject involves three things" and you show three fingers, then you show the first of these three fingers (most probably you thumb) and say: firstly.... and so on... You're using body language to emphasize your structure. Everything will become clearer without needing extra words... 

 Similarly, if your point involves three moments in time such as : "Before...... Now.....Our vision for the future" you can stand on one side of the stage for what was before, the middle of the stage for what's going on now, and the other side of the stage for your vision of the future" 

 The pros and the cons. Show two opposite stances.... 

Although the headlines for these sessions are always different, the basic format is always the same : 

  •  Four or five opportunities to speak for a short time per evening (impromptu speaking on easy topics such as conversation starters...)
  • Positive feed back to strengthen confidence by becoming more aware of existing qualities (by the group)
  • Suggestions for improvement/ alternative ways  to experiment  immediately (I suggest this)  

A session's headline reflects a particular aspect of public speaking which we'll  pay more attention to, however they are not set in stone, as feed back is not something that can be planned before listening :-) 

One slot per evening is available for a prepared speech from the manual. You earn discounts as you progress in this manual!
