Speak4Impact Academy

Boost your presentation skills & become a more effective communicator in just over a month with the power of rhetorics!

Get unstuck & learn how to make a true impact with your corporate presentations

Presenting confidently in front of an audience is no easy task. Not only do you have to get your message across effectively, but you also need to connect with your audience and trigger impact.

 

What if I told you there is no such thing as a natural-born presenter, and it’s not about talent or charisma that only a few have? 

 

Moreover, it has nothing to do with your personality traits; being extroverted does not necessarily make you deliver impeccable presentations. 

 

And vice versa; being reserved or more on the introverted side of the spectrum doesn’t mean you have to hide behind your desk or in your office and never get on the “stage” or “spotlight” to deliver a presentation with confidence and impact.

It’s all about the right preparation. Working on the right skills can work wonders, and changing your mindset from “loser” to “winner” can help you reach a breakthrough!

Plus, presentations should not be a chore. They are an excellent opportunity to let your talent and personality shine while being yourself. And for that reason, you need to look forward to and enjoy them to the fullest!

 

That’s where my 5-week long Speak4Impact Academy comes into play!

Recognise these situations?

Look for the signs and think if any of the following situations ring a bell

(or even set off an alarm!)​

You lose your confidence before you start talking

You are uncertain about getting your message across and being credible when you present

You feel afraid of or get intimidated by tricky questions that may come up during a presentation, especially the ones you do not anticipate 

You doubt your worth and ability to persuade and challenge decisions in a meaningful and professional manner

Motivational Speaker

Things can be different.
Discover the 3 essentials for making a difference!

Making a difference with corporate presentations is about evoking your audience's emotions and reactions, making your message memorable, and triggering the right action.

 

For that to happen, you must work on the following three essentials:

CLARITY

Without clarity, your audience will worry that problems are coming. For instance, if there are a lot of "moving parts" in a new project, the lack of “organised” thinking will increase your audience’s fear of future failure. A weak message creates fear and uncertainty. You can learn to communicate clearly.

CREDIBILITY

If you sell on passion and foster your communication skills, your audience will see there is discipline, a process and a plan. With that, you will reassure them that you are trustworthy.
You can learn to be sound and credible when presenting.

INFLUENCE

Your audience only has a couple of minutes; make them count. Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, you have no other option but to present confidently. In order to persuade and influence your audience, you must prepare, train and visualise success.
Everyone can learn the art of Public Speaking.

What you will learn

The programme includes 5 modules that cover everything from presentation delivery skills to mental preparation and everything in between.

Speak with confidence

Stage fright, anxiety, or jittery before a presentation? Speaking too much and too fast? You will learn tools, tips and tricks of the trade to increase your confidence regardless of whether you speak to colleagues, clients, business partners or industry peers. 

Speech preparation

The best speeches and presentations are usually the result of thorough and careful preparation. An iceberg is an excellent metaphor for a good speech or presentation. The quality of what lies beneath the water will make the difference.

Speachcraft

In speechcraft, it is important to keep the information organised, demonstrating credibility and making the speech easier to comprehend. It starts with the main idea, the speech body and a compelling conclusion. Speech organisation is effectively taking the information one wishes to present and arranging it in a logical order. It comes down to three things: impact, credibility and influence. 

Impromptu speaking

Becoming skilled at impromptu speaking can give you the self-confidence you need to give a last-minute presentation, sail through a challenging meeting, or persuade others of your ideas. You can build your reputation as a leader when you learn to speak effectively under pressure. It can also help you conduct a successful Q&A session or make crucial connections at a networking event.

Charisma and Rhetoric Device 

Your impact as a speaker depends upon your body language.

You probably have control over the words you speak, but are you sure you have control over what you say with your body language?

Body language comprises gestures, stances, and facial expressions. Furthermore, you will learn the key rhetorical devices to convey meaning and persuade.

The right body language, supported by inspiring words, leads to Charisma.

You will build your capacity to attract, convince, and influence the people around you.
