Workshop on public speaking

21 April 2017 - 22 April 2017


Event description

Understanding the basics of good communication (message elements), alongside what it takes to be a good communicator (message delivery), is an intrinsic element of how we do business, of how we function in and relate to the world around us.

A heightened awareness of how others speak, and the skill to identify what went well and what could have gone better, help improve our own speaking styles. Using presentations as a medium of delivery – impromptu, extemporaneous, manuscript, and memorised – this workshop will explore the meaning of good communication, discuss how to provide constructive feedback to other speakers, and focus on finding style and voice.

The workshop is exercise-driven and requires active participation. Participants are asked to prepare a two-minute presentation on a topic of their choice and be ready to present during the workshop. Although the workshop is run in English, the lessons learned are applicable to all languages.

All participants who complete the workshop will receive certificate issued by DiploFoundation.

Workshop facilitator

Ms Mary Murphy is a Budapest-based public speaking coach, specialising in communications training for non-native-English speakers.
