Public Speaking Training – yes we need it!

Project coordinator: Milan Stojanovic

WBAA Public Speaking Training offers a reliable model for preparing and delivering effective speech and presentations. Being a good speaker is often critical for leadership positions in the world of business, activism, local community groups as well as in other occasions when we are challenged to speak in front of groups of people.

WBAA members are expected to be called to share their thoughts publicly. Quite often it makes people feel stressed and insecure. Sometimes they don’t know what to talk about, or speak long without making a point, or simply be confusing to listen to. This training is designed to help you to be confident, create a right message and reach the target audience. Participants will learn how to organize talks clearly, deliver them confidently, reduce fear of public speaking and perform speeches with dynamic movement and gestures.

The training sessions are designed to include interactive lectures, workshops and teamwork. Participants will be divided into smaller groups in which they will work on various group tasks. The types of speeches and rethorical techniques that we will practiced will include the elevator pitch, interviews, presentations, different debating methods, and how to frame and reframe effectively to achieve your goals. In this three day training every participant will have to leave their comfort zone and engage in interactive participation. Also, bringing together 20 WBAA members from all over the region and from different WBAA teams will provide a strong basis for further WBAA development, use of WBAA resources and strengthening ties within our network.

See how it went.
