How confident is your handshake with your audience? with Ges Ray

17th January 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

£20.00

You can’t get out of it now. Your name is being mentioned. In three minute’s time you have to leave the security of your chair, walk to the front of the room, face your audience and speak. Not just speak but speak in public. Public Speaking. How are you feeling? Why is your heart racing, your stomach…ok, let’s not go there. What can you do about it?

In this practical, interactive – and fun! – workshop you will practise fundamental, effective techniques to build your confidence in public speaking, and just as importantly, your audience’s confidence in you as a speaker. We will work on:

  • Your initial contact, effectively your ‘handshake’ with your audience
  • Gaining your audience’s attention
  • Maintaining your audience’s attention

In a supportive, constructive, atmosphere – where no one is judging you! – you will put these fundamental techniques into practice, building your public speaking skills with your workshop colleagues.

The team feedback may also provide you with an interesting slant on how you describe your own business…

Ges is still smiling after four decades of commercial roles, from Bank Manager to Business Development Manager twinned with four decades of Public Speaking, delivering workshops, Keynotes, MC and radio broadcasting. Traditional ‘in the room’ workshops are complemented by delivering via media such as Zoom, Skype & webinars.

Add into the mix a personal passion for choral singing (2nd Bass voice if you are interested, but only ask him about recently singing a solo in Carnegie Hall, New York if you have time for the answer…) enabling Ges to deliver an effective mix of voice skills, business & presenting experience to equip you and your team with the skills to speak & present for your business.

With 140+ testimonials on LinkedIn – https://uk.linkedin.com/in/gesray – Ges delivers a toolkit for business delivering the confidence to stand up and address clients & meetings, confidence to present via other media, confidence to network to win business.

Author of ‘Speak Performance’ – a handy pocket / bag size book to take with you on the train, dip into over a coffee ahead of your meeting to refresh your memory of helpful techniques that you can use immediately:
