Public Speaking

“Preparing my talk for TEDxHeidelberg with Zena-Gabrielle Hailu as my coach, was a fantastic experience. Zena always managed to ask the right questions to help me develop my thoughts and my presentation. I never felt belittled or discouraged, but always appreciated and inspired.” Mareike Hachemer, TEDX Heidelberg speaker, Varkey Foundation ambassador.

Premise

Speaking in public often is an inevitable task in today’s professional world. Yet it can be a real challenge to compose a speech or presentation, especially if English is not your native language and you are speaking in an intercultural context. Developing your public speaking skills can make you feel more confident, and it can contribute to your organization’s growth.

Training Objectives

REALIZE believes that there is a difference between simply listing information and packaging it into a story that will make what you are saying compelling and comprehensible. This training seeks to help you feel more confident when you speak in public by providing you with the fundamental principles of public speaking in English.

Speaking well in public is a combination of inner and outer qualities. As a certified Public Speaking Expert, I can accompany you as a trainer through the process of identifying the sources that build upon your confidence and I can create a safe space for you where you can practice, practice, practice!
