Have you ever felt public speaking was something meant for men called gods
like Martin Luther King?
Did you know that a public speaker’s message is woven into his
personality; a good blend is a great combination that is powerful?
Have you been speaking for free and you loathe the fact that phenomenal
speakers are lugging home outrageous amounts for speaking?
Are you considering going into public speaking full time?
Do you feel the pangs of fear that make your knees buckle and your speech
slurred whenever you stand before people to speak?
Are you often confused on how to properly pronounce some English words and
that makes you look like as a wanna-be?
If you have considered the questions above and found yourself fitting into
one of these questions above, then keep calm and read on.
SPEAKING PROPS is a Masterclass for public speakers, thought leaders,
business leaders and TV/radio presenters.
The first edition held in Port Harcourt on the 30th of May, 2014. Abuja
edition held on the 15th of November, 2014. Lagos edition is scheduled to
hold on the 20th of June, 2015.
There will be five sessions facilitated by awesome speakers:
1. PSYCHOLOGY OF PUBLIC SPEAKING.
Public Speaking is not rhetoric. It is meant to be a persona. You should
carry your message from inside you. The original power in public speaking
is derived from being a walking, living version of your message.
There is a psychology to public speaking. Your first few words, your
facial countenance, your gait and salutation can make or mar your speech
How do you grip this psychology and use it to your advantage?
During this session, BANKOLE WILLIAMS @iambankole will teach participants
what the psychology is and how to use it to their advantage.
2. OVERCOMING FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING.
Many individuals have messages within them , yearning to be shared to the
world. But, standing in a room of just five persons, they tremble, sweat,
or even piss in their pants. The fear of public speaking is one of the
worst fears in human history. However, this can be overcome, not by using
drugs or narcotics, but by effective strategies that work.
CHINONSO OGBOGU @chinonsowrites will share with participants on how to
overcome this fear.
3. BUSINESS OF PUBLIC SPEAKING.
Many speakers speak for free, and that’s fine. But you can earn a fee by
doing something you usually do for free. That’s where the business aspect
sets in. Speaking is a value-adding enterprise. How do you fashion your
product? How do you structure your offering to be valuable and profitable?
STEVE HARRIS @iamsteveharris will share with participants on how to do the
business of their speaking.
4. PHONETICS, ELOCUTION AND SPEECH PRESENTATION STRATEGIES.
Phonetics isn’t just to speak like oyinbo people. Keeping your words
simple so you don’t lose your audience is key. Sounding your words
properly is paramount. Modulation, using a key example like Martin Luther
is essential to a fantastic speech delivery.
EKUNDAYO ODELE @ekundayoodele will share these strategies participants.
5. PROPPING YOUR SPEAKING ANTICS
What do you do when you are invited to speak? What’s the place of
powerpoint slides in your presentation? How do you start preparations?
What do you do if you are running late to an event? Should you stay behind
when you are done speaking at an event? What is the use of feedback
sheets? What has time got to do with your delivery?
EMEKA NOBIS @iamemekanobis will share effective strategies that can prop
your speaking antics and position you to be invited again and again by
