What percentage of speakers are able to capture and hold their audience’s attention the entire time they are speaking? Not many. And yet, despite this, public speaking is a vital skill in 90% of professions and a key determiner in an individual’s personal success.   

The ability to deliver an engaging presentation may prove decisive in the development of an individual’s professional career. To do so, the speaker must know how to make an impact on the audience, paying attention to both the content of their speech and how they set the scene.

A wholly practical methodology is used based on the preparation and carrying out of a presentation in public. This will make use of some of the most complex technical conditions, bio-feedback systems and virtual reality in order to perfect presentations, and will also be recorded for correction later on.

This Executive Education program is based on:

  • The development and structuring of the speech
  • Audiovisual tools
  • Voice exercises
