Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme for Executives & Professionals
11 & 12 May 2013
@ Telekom Malaysia Convention Centre, Bangsar

The registration for this session was not very encouraging. It could be due to the uncertainty and hyperactivity surrounding the General Elections. In any case, I worked hard and managed to get 8 participants to attend the class. We went back to the TM Convention Centre.

The course went off to a energetic start. As usual, the trainer Azmi Shahrin was enthusiastic. Since the number was small, he had more time to ask each participant in detail what he or she feared most about public speaking and what he or she wanted to get out of this course. He then assured all present that their respective problems were common and could be overcome.

As usual, the key modules covered included body language (4 elements), vocal variety, speech organization and others. And again, the highlight of the course was the personal coaching that the participants received. Each participant had the opportunity to present 6 speeches throughout the programme and was coached intensively. During some of the speeches, the participants were encouraged to speak on topics related to their work.

Course highlight:

The trainer was attentive throughout to "correct" the participants!

For tea breaks and lunch on both days, I had to buy food from outside and it involved a lot of work. However, I persevered to ensure everyone was happy.

The programme ended with the presentation of certificates and evaluation. Luckily, everyone was happy with their progress over the 2 days. However, I still have to devise a strategy to get more participants for the next round!
