Whether we prepare in advance or improvise, the more we structure, the better. However, having a good structure is not always enough. The audience has to be aware of the structure. After all, it's for them to get the best out of our speech that we bother to structure ! Sign posting is just about that: Explaining the structure as we go along....
Although the headlines and 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 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.
