This two-day course encourages the participants to connect to their objective and focus themselves through use of their body and voice when communicating. The course will cover the use of body language and outlining of presentation topics.
In addition to examining how to coordinate the voice, the sessions will demonstrate techniques and strategies to increase vocal range to become a more dynamic presenter- when speaking publicly, pitching or presenting business ideas. On the second day, attendees will be asked to make a presentation for tutor evaluation and feedback.
