Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme for Executives & Professionals
26 & 27 March 2012
@ Crystal Crown Hotel, PJ

As this programme was to be held on weekdays, we expected some difficulty in obtaining participants. However, thanks to Axis Anugerah Sdn. Bhd. which registered 3 participants, we had a good start in terms of registration. In the course of time, 6 more participants registered. The venue was again Crystal Crown Hotel, PJ.

After a short introduction on the importance of public speaking, the trainer went into the individual modules including speech organization, body language, vocal variety and correct English pronunciation. As usual, the module on body language took the longest to cover as it consisted of 4 separate parts. And this time, in response to the participants' request, an extra emphasis was placed on speech organization. There was hands-on practice after each module or section.

In total, each participant had 6 rounds of individual practice and of being coached personally. Besides the standard stuff, the trainer also helped participants overcome individual "unique" weaknesses such as unnatural intonation and others.

Outside of class time, the participants also had to opportunity to mingle and network during tea breaks and lunch.

It was good that we had no "dropouts" for this round. All 9 participants managed to stay till the end as no work or other emergency arose. The class ended with certification presentation and evaluations.
