Just a little tip for now:
Strong communication is a balance of novelties and repetition. In music, this is equivalent to the principle of rhythm: a pattern that is repeated again and again. We love it and can dance with it because of its predictability, but but but... there are always changes, surprises, fluctuations... to keep it alive!
Although the themes 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 feedback (from the group) to improve confidence by becoming more aware of existing strengths
- Suggestions for improvement/ideas of alternative ways to communicate, which can be immediately practised (suggested by me)
A session's theme reflects a particular aspect of public speaking which we'll pay more attention to; however they are not set in stone, as feedback is not something that can be planned before listening :-)
One slot per evening is available for a speaker interested in presenting a prepared speech from the manual.
