Talk: Boost Your Public Speaking Skills
On September 16th, Emma Zangs, Choreographer and Movement & Communication Coach, held a lively interactive evening workshop on how to “Boost Your Public Speaking Skills” at the Museum of Brands.
Emma started the workshop explaining why we lose our confidence and how the mind and body work together when speaking publically, reflecting one another. The workshop centred around practical exercises to calm your nerves and switch to the pitching mind set. Participants also learned how to activate confidence by aligning their posture, how to use their hand gestures eloquently and to find their grounded voice.
By the end of the workshop, every participant was able to find a method that works for them, establishing new habits to enable them to pitch with ease.
Emma ended workshop with a Q&A session where participants, including representatives from Sainsbury’s, Moss Bros and the London College of Communication, discussed their public speaking experiences and how they now plan to continue to boost their public speaking skills beyond the workshop. The workshop was a fantastic experience, and a great chance to develop some essential professional skills.
