One of the greatest challenges speakers/presenters have is to engage and excite their audience around a message or an idea. The most engaging speakers are those that have presence, an authentic voice and tell a great story with passion. This workshop will give you the opportunity to develop the core story that delivers your message, enable you to deliver your story in an authentic way and will show you how to excite an audience.
We will give you insight into your authentic voice, how to use your story to engage your audience and performance techniques to energise them.
If you want to enhance your presence and speaking ability to stand out and connect with an audience this the programme for you.
Finding Your Voice
This workshop will help you find, experience and refine your authentic voice. In business it is vital that we create an authentic connection with the people who surround us and who ensure the success of our business – our clients, our team, our suppliers, our board of management or our partners.
There is nothing more powerful than the intrinsic value of The Authentic Voice. Who we are by just being ourselves. When we are authentic we can inspire the world.
We are all born with a unique voice. Over time this voice can become lost in our need to conform to everything that surrounds us and behave “appropriately”. This begs the question, how do we create authentic connections with those around us while not having an authentic connection with our self, our voice? What do we have to say to the world we inhabit?
This workshop guides you on a journey to find, experience and explore the power of your unique authentic voice so you can connect with the people you want to reach.

WHAT OUR DELEGATES SAY
Then most valuable piece of information and idea was that of how to construct a story and deliver a message to a person or persons that are interested in my product. The process of crafting the story as part of the pitch. For me the golden nugget was to always remain my authentic self. Another really great workshop with practical learning. The elements of authenticity and communicating your story and expressing our passion are often overlooked when presenting ideas. We tend to focus on selling our idea and forgetting about selling ourselves. This workshop was helpful not only in reminding me of its importance but also has provided tools and approaches that I can adopt when presenting my idea.
Effective communication is powerful and a definite in a thriving business but always something that eluded me. Attending the Masterclass last week has not only given me the tools to know how to communicate more effectively but also the motivation to seek out speaking activities and put myself in the centre, instead of the background. The biggest take home for me was around permission and the use of story to communicate meaning to clients and/or potential clients. If you struggle with getting your message ‘out there’ or even knowing what to say to clients then I’d definitely recommend this course. It’s a great day of learning, exploration and most of all, fun!.
