LEARN TO SPEAK AUTHENTICALLY AND CAPTIVATINGLY IN ONE DAY
As a manager, professional or entrepreneur, do you need to speak to small or large groups in English? Are you often nervous about being in the ‘spotlight’, especially when English trips you up? Do you find it difficult to engage your audience from start to finish? Or do you miss the inspiration and creativity for a story that sticks? In this day-long training, we help you confront your personal obstacles once and for all, including the English language bits. During our interactive exercises you will eventually throw all hesitation away. By the end of the day, you will genuinely be eager to give your next presentation.
WHAT MAKES THIS ENGLISH-LANGUAGE TRAINING SO SPECIAL?
This English-language version of our classic Authentic Speaking training is co-lead by husband-and-wife team, Piet and Jamie. Piet is the original trainer who has led thousands of people to feel comfortable speaking publicly. Jamie is a native English speaker from the United States who has worked as a TV presenter, podcast host, and keynote speaker. If you are a native English speaker, this day will fine tune your presentation skills. If you use English but could benefit from honest feedback on your usage, pronunciation, and cultural references, you will gain tremendous confidence from this experience.

DISCOVER THE POWER OF STORYTELLING
During the Authentic Speaking training you will discover the power of storytelling for your work, product, or company. You will personally experience how important authenticity is for your persuasiveness. You learn to use your personal baggage as a source of inspiration for presentations. You can inspire and entertain your audience with a real story about a subject you know well.
LEARN HOW TO DEAL WITH TENSION, FEEDBACK AND… APPLAUSE
PowerPoint and Prezi are powerful tools if you use them properly. When misused, they hinder interaction with your audience. It is even more convincing if you tell a fantastic story to colleagues or relations without tools. During the Authentic Speaking training you will learn how to make real contact with your audience without being nervous. You will receive professional guidance and feedback. And you learn to receive applause! Because that’s what you’re going to get when you’ve followed this one-day training. Register today.
