About this Event

Project management expert, Cornelius Fichtner is eager to teach us that "The 'P' in PM is as much about ‘people’ management as it is about ‘project’ management.” Sounds about right?

To move people when it matters most, you have to talk to them, in person, live. Speaking directly to an audience is like no other mode of communication. It can convey information, but also your conviction and your determination. The spoken word, if performed well, connects to the listener's brain in on a more profound level than the written word.

And yes, public speaking skills are not a natural born gift. They can be learned and indeed they can be taught.

In this 120 minute talk Guy Benzeno, a public speaking coach and the founder of Center Stage, will provide us with crucial tips on public speaking. So that you can make a greater impact on your project boards and steering committees, with clients and stakeholders. So that you can get a “YES” in critical meetings.

Being a great presenter - being a great communicator - will allow you to : push forward your ideas, grow your influence, advance your projects or your career

Content in Workshop may include:

- Impromptu Speeches (spin the wheel)

- 17th Century Metaphor exercise

- Prosody: Reading Magazine & Children’s book Tongue Twisters and Intent

- Bonus: Use case in visual aides
