Becoming a convincing speaker



Imagine that you have to present your ideas, proposals, or solutions to a group of people. You know that convincing them is of great importance. Or maybe you are preparing to give a presentation of your company’s new services, products and/or projects. You know that there will be questions and objections which call for good answers.  

How are you going to do it? How will you stand, where will you look, what will you do with your hands? How will you know when to present facts, when and how to conclude, what to say if someone disagrees with you? 

The power of persuasion lies in how you do things – in the way you present, in the way you speak and address your audience. People want a clear and concrete delivery. Only a relaxed and confident presentation will get them on your side.

The workshop is organised in person or on-line using various platforms (Zoom, MS Teams). The number of hours per meeting is determined by agreement with the customer.



Workshops and training sessions consist of: short input sessions, discussions, individual, pair, and group work.

The techniques I employ aim to encourage participants to immediately apply what they have learned to their daily routine.



Our basic programmes comprise 16 academic hours, while shorter programmes last 8 academic hours (these programmes involve fewer exercises and practical examples). We recommend a minimum of 24 academic hours if you seek to train your employees thoroughly.



The recommended number of participants per workshop is 20; and 10 per training. The client may, of course, opt for a larger number of participants. In this case, a training session becomes a workshop, and a workshop becomes a seminar/lecture (over 25 participants).



The prices of workshops, training sessions, seminars/lectures depend on their duration, the number of participants, and additional preparation time (i.e., analysing participants’ level of proficiency, designing customised solutions, etc.). The final price is always agreed upon in advance with the client.
