& Why These Skills are Vital for Career Progression and Company Success:
40% of people state that Public Speaking is their worst fear (quoted from ‘Book of Lists’)and yet it is a vital skill which heavily determines an individual’s chance of promotion and companies’ chance of success…
Your public speaking skills drastically affect the way in which people perceive you personally as well as your company..
Since Presentations make or break lucrative deals, contracts and careers, not improving these skills is short-sighted and unwise.
Most managers spend 70-90% of their time engaged in some form of public speaking.
To improve your chances of promotion improve your public speaking skills.
It is usually their public speaking (leadership) skills which secured their promotion.
This is often the case since there are normally other employees just as competent and intelligent who may well have been promoted instead if their public speaking skills had been stronger.
Developing these skills can therefore drastically improve:
As well as this public speaking occasions become exciting, fun and rewarding occasions.
They don’t need to be dreaded, petrifying experiences.
They don’t need to be boring experiences -experiences resentfully tolerated by you and your audience.
They can be empowering, inspiring and highly persuasive.
Presentations are an art-form which can be taught and mastered.
By giving you the tools to succeed, and by tackling issues with feedback and support, we can teach you how to use the opportunity presentations represent to your full advantage.
