Public Speaking Course

Why did we develop this Public Speaking course?
In a world where social interaction is continually dwindling and kids are spending over 8hrs per day staring at screens, the ability to speak articulately has become hard to come by.
Solid academics are a must!
Academics are required, however to be an academic achiever is now the bare minimum.
To exceed the competition and differentiate themselves, students must become proficient in the areas everyone else is inept.
Articulate PUBLIC SPEAKING is a requirement for job success.
This is not enough.
“My shyness has been in reality my shield and buckler. It has allowed me to grow. It has helped me in my discernment of truth."
Week 1: Speech Analysis
What engages you? What moves you? Who do you love to listen to?
What is it that makes a great speech GREAT…
We will be breaking down the key techniques used by the worlds greatest orators in their most iconic speeches and show your child how they can implement this into their language.
Week 2: Pacing and Volume
You know those speeches so captivating that the speaker can take a long pause….
and still hold EVERY SINGLE PERSONS ATTENTION.
Volume plays an important role in speaking English clearly and effectively communicating ideas. Exceptional speakers use different levels of loudness to signal which words are important, what we want you to understand from our meaning, and which ideas most require your attention.
Knowing when to get the audience fired up by a blasting fury of words, and when to slow everything right down to carefully measuring out each word to emphasize the meaning of your message.
As a speaker, the art of pacing can be one of your greatest tools.
Week 3: Tonal Variety
Authority and trust.
When individuals judge their voice, they are usually commenting on the quality of their pitch. Learning to speak in your optimal pitch range is important for presenting with strong, rich tones that are aesthetically pleasing to your listener whilst asserting authority.
Week 4: Story Telling (Telling Informative Stories)
How to relate with your audience and drive your point HOME!
A great rhetorician shares one major idea with their audience and then uses a story (or stories) to drive that point home. It’s a very simple way to make a convincing argument and gain the audience’s empathy.
Week 5: Story Telling (Telling Self Deprecating Stories)
Be vulnerable to make yourself relatable.
People love people, people engage with people. An audience’s emotions are central to great communication. The orators who make the best impressions aren’t aiming to impress others. They’re focused on connecting with others.
Week 6: Humour
Laughter is the greatest medicine apparently.
A speaker who uses humour well comes across as more human, more likeable. This puts an audience at ease and makes people more receptive to your ideas. As British comedian John Cleese has said, “If I can get you to laugh with me, you like me better, which makes you more open to my ideas.”
Week 7: Vlogging / Video Persona (Develop Your Camera Presence)
It’s no longer the future of communication, it is now the present.
The entire world has gone online now. There is no escape… With online interviews, online classes and online business meetings this is an essential skill that you must master.
Week 8: Vlogging / Video Persona
Here you’ll be combining all your skills.
Pacing… Volume… Pitch… Story telling… Humour… Evoking emotions… Authority…
Mesmerise your audience.
Week 9: Refining your Speech Writing
The best preparation for tomorrow is good work today.
Preparation is the single most important part of making a successful presentation. It is an absolutely crucial foundation, and you should dedicate as much time to it as possible, avoiding short-cuts.
Good preparation will ensure that you have thought carefully about the messages that you want (or need) to communicate in your presentation and it will also help boost your confidence.
Week 10: Final Presentation
Are you ready to put your skills to the test?
There you are in front of everybody and with only words you can sway a crowd.
You can bring them to tears, laughter, or even anger and happiness by the shear power of words.
Once up, and it is my time to give a speech everything else falls away. I feel the adrenalin pumping and my senses feel hyper aware.
The power to draw one in with vocal and bodily clues is amazing.
You will love giving speeches, it is the most invigorating feeling ever…
