Telephone and video conference training: Getting your message across in the workplace
The pre-dawn stillness is pierced by the shrill sound of an alarm clock. Groping sleepily for the off button, it's the rather unwelcome prospect of an early morning conference call that gets you hurtling out of bed.
Groping your way to the bathroom in the gloom, you splash yourself awake, before stumbling downstairs for a kick-ass cup of coffee.
Only a few minutes are left for you to gurgle away the raspy voice, quickly apply make-up and throw on some clothes. There's just enough time for a silent prayer of thanks for the neatly laid out financials on the dining room table, before the phone rings.
Tucking your fluffy pink slippers under the table, you adjust the top half of your business suit and make sure one last time that your Mickey Mouse pajama bottoms remain strictly out of sight.
This two-day interactive programme around presenting for telephone and video conferences in the workplace, will enable delegates to become both proficient and confident in using tried-and-tested presentation techniques.
You will be coached on the art of comfortable and seamless presenting, while learning to cultivate your own unique style. Emphasis will also be placed on vocal usage, its different styles and interpretations, breath control and effective body language.
Learning outcomes from this workshop to be conducted at a professional film and sound studio, include:
• The visual impact of a professional appearance
• The planning and preparation of messages
• The art of active listening, memorization and interpretation
• The presenter's tools
• The finer skills of a versatile presenter
• Different approaches to presenting
• Presenting in practice
• Methods to drive down stress and drive up energy levels
Delegates will perform interactive practicals and exercise routines in studio with seasoned voice-over artist, corporate video, radio and television presenter, Mariette Engelen.
