Public Speaking – Speaking Under Pressure

Public Speaking – Speaking Under Pressure

This workshop has been designed for those in positions where they must speak in front of audiences that are hostile or demanding. This material is also suitable for those who are relatively new speakers who want some encouragement to speak up in meetings or who want some training before they begin making presentations on behalf of the organization.

Speaking under pressure, or thinking on your feet, means being able to quickly organize your thoughts and ideas, and then being able to convey them meaningfully to your audience to modify their attitudes or behavior. It applies to formal speeches as well as everyday business situations.

It requires presence of mind, goal orientation, adaptation, and judgement. It also requires differentiating between oral and written communications.

This course is aimed at improving your skills and learning some new techniques which will give you the persuasive edge when you are making a presentation, fielding difficult questions, or presenting complex information.

Specific learning objectives will include:

  • Apply quick and easy preparation methods that will work whether you have one minute or one week to prepare.
  • Prepare for questions, even before you know what those questions will be.
  • Overcome nervousness that you may have when speaking in front of a group, particularly if the group is not sympathetic to what you have to say.
  • Use presentation techniques that establish your credibility and get people on your side.

Making Your Listener Hear You

Key Themes

Key Sentences

To begin the second day, we’ll wrap up our discussion on key themes. Participants will share their homework assignment.

Beginnings and Endings

This session will give participants some ways to create strong beginnings and endings.

Expanding a Basic Plan

So far, this workshop has focused on small presentations. This session will give participants some tips on fleshing out those small presentations should they be required to present something longer than just a few minutes.

Presentations

To conclude the workshop, participants will prepare and present a short five minute speech. Participants will also evaluate each other.

Workshop Wrap-Up
