Most of us dread having to speak in public, especially when given little or no time to prepare. You can reduce your stress level and improve your professional image by using a simple process so you respond with confidence.
In this session, you learn how to rise to the occasion when invited to speak in group settings—whether fielding audience questions during a presentation or making an impromptu speech.
This course benefits anyone who needs to speak on the spot with greater confidence and clarity.
We suggest up to 40 participants.
In this engaging virtual or speaker session, learn how to build your skills and confidence when speaking on the spot. You use a simple framework to structure your response, so you listen first before rushing to respond. And you learn techniques to calm nerves. During the session, you apply what you learn as you prepare to respond to potential questions. You leave with a clear process you can repeat in the future, so you succeed whenever you are invited to speak on the spot.
Your manager or training department will schedule it directly with Wavelength. We occasionally offer public open-enrollment webinars to individuals so you can sign up for a session yourself.
Our course administration team works with your training coordinator to confirm participant numbers and rosters, as well as participant materials and logistics. The team also answers questions and troubleshoots any issues.
About two weeks before your session is scheduled to begin, you receive an email with information about how to join, including login details for virtual sessions and logistical details for in-person sessions. You receive an email explaining what to expect and how to prepare. If you’re using digital participant materials, you also receive these with your email. If you’re using print materials, you receive these when you arrive for your session.
You spend your time learning. Our webinars and speaker sessions are interactive, so you have plenty of opportunities to try out new skills and share ideas as you learn.
Yes! You receive a copy of the PPT for future reference. You may also receive additional materials to use during or after your session.
Typically, there’s no prework for webinars and speaker sessions. If you receive digital materials with your pre-course email, we ask you to have these downloaded and saved to your device to use as you need during the session. Otherwise, just bring yourself and come ready to engage and learn!
We don’t ask participants to turn video on for webinars.
For webinars, you need a computer, preferably with camera and microphone capabilities, with your digital materials downloaded and saved. Although it’s possible to join virtual sessions on other devices, we recommend a computer for an optimal learning experience.
For in-person speaker sessions, bring a laptop if you’re using digital materials, and a pen and notebook if you wish to take notes by hand.
Webinars are perfect if you’re looking for a cost-effective way to entertain, inspire and educate a large group virtually, and you have 60- to 90-minutes. Participants are remote and they can be anywhere in the world, so webinars are ideal if you want to bring together teams from different regions.
If you’re looking for a speaker to entertain, inspire and educate a large group at an offsite, conference or lunch and learn in a 60- to 90-minute time slot, a speaker session is for you. We can accommodate a large group, so it’s cost effective.
This course allows you to break out of your comfort zone and make meaningful changes to existing habits with the help and guidance of a facilitator. Highly recommend it!
