Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme for Executives & Professionals
22 & 23 September 2012
@ Crystal Crown Hotel, PJ

This was the penultimate session before closing a 4-year run of this programme. As I hoped for, the registration process was not too difficult. 11 people registered. From experience I knew that 1 or 2 would not be able to make it to the class, hence I allowed up to 11 people to register. And true enough, only 9 turned up on the first day and 8 on the second day. So we ended up with quite an optimal number of students for effective coaching. As planned, we went back to Crystal Crown Hotel after conducting the training elsewhere in July.

There was not much difference between this round and the few earlier ones. The trainer took the participants through the standard modules on overcoming nervousness, body language, vocal variety and speech organization. Of course, the participants had many rounds of practice while being coached by the trainer.

One of the things I liked about this training (this round and all the past rounds) was the trainer's willingness to take seriously and answer questions from the floor. Though this took up additional time but it made the participants happy.

On the first day, I was not around most of the time as I had another meeting to attend and a few urgent things to do. I didn't see much of the action. When I arrived on the morning of the second day, I was relieved when one of the participants said he was very satisfied with the programme so far. Not that I was surprised but it's nice to be reassured anyway. And judging from their performance that morning, I could see that they had improved a lot since the beginning of the first day (based on the little that I saw).

The class ended a bit late on the second day but everyone went home satisfied.
