Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme for Executives & Professionals
26 & 27 November 2012
@ Jaya33 Convention Centre, PJ

To close our 4-year run of this programme, I decided to have a change of training venue just to get a fresh breath of air. So I chose the Jaya33 Convention Centre which was very near our usual training location (Crystal Crown Hotel).

Registration was a bit hard to come by probably due to the course being held on weekdays and towards the end of the year. However, I worked extra hard to get the numbers. Eventually, we still had a full class of 10 participants.

The training proceeded as usual with each module being covered and the participants undergoing many rounds of presentation and individual coaching. The modules included overcoming nervousness, body language, vocal variety, speech organization and correct pronunciation. I had a few errands to run outside and did not catch much of the action. But I could see that everyone was eager to learn and improve. And they did improve a lot over the 2 days.

5 participants were registered under their respective companies, the other 5 were "private" participants

Since we could not sign up for catering due to the small number, we decided to provide breakfast and lunch instead of lunch and teabreaks. On both days, the participants had a hearty and healthy breakfast at Coffee Bean and an enjoyable lunch at Georgetown White Coffee. Both were within the Jaya33 complex. In short, Jaya33 was a reasonable alternative and we would consider having more trainings there.
