About This Public Speaking Course

Public Speaking Skill Course For Adults in Singapore

Public speaking involves talking in front of unknown crowds. It usually involves numerous people, a speech to communicate in front of a large audience. In public speaking, the message is meant to inform, influence, or, entertain a group of listeners. It always has an objective to achieve. There are many reasons why everyone should learn this skill and why there is a need to know how to do it. Everyone will have to speak publicly from time to time whether it is talking in front of a team meeting or have a presentation in front of an audience. Confidence is also a factor in public speaking.

Gaining the confidence to speak over time is through experience, exposure, and practice. This ability will help boost it as it improves your speaking skills. Once a person flourishes this skill, they will better their reputation, have more opportunities, or bigger chances of career growth. Employers highly value dynamic and well-prepared speakers. They tend to earn leadership positions and important client contact roles. A person with a job involving communicating, teaching or persuading will do better if they have public speaking skills.

Course Content For This Public Speaking Skill Training Course

Below is the list of course content of our Public Speaking Skill training course

  • Performing a Needs Analysis
    • Preparing for a speech should begin with considering the wants and needs of the audience. What are they interested in? What do they care about?
  • Creating an Audience Profile
    • Education: If your attendance is well-educated, you can utilise reasonably refined vocabulary. If they’re not, you want to keep things manageable.Familiarity with Topic: What do people understand about the topic already, and what do you need to explain?
  • Identifying Key Questions and Concerns
    • If you have a good comprehension of your audience, you can probably predict the key questions and concerns they are likely to have. You may not be able to produce the audience with the answers they would like to hear, but at least you should be ready to discuss the things they care about most.
  • Outlining the Situation
    • Almost every project addresses a predicament, an opportunity, or both. An efficient way to introduce your speech is by outlining the condition that your project resolves. This approach necessitates you to get to the point right away.
  • Ideentifying the Task That Had to be Performed
    • Your assignment description will be the organising principle for the rest of your presentation. Most of what ensues will be an account of what you did to accomplish the task. One way to come up with a manageable, clear task description is to imagine you are drafting it for a teenager.
  • Listing the Actions You Took
    • If a presentation comprises a list of actions, it’s a good idea to display the list on a slide or a flip chart. People have a tough time keeping more than three or four items straight in their head unless they see them displayed. As you go through your list in your presentation, you can point to each item on your chart or slide.
  • Revealing the Results
    • Revealing the results of a project entails answering a few basic questions: Did the project accomplish its goal? Were there any unforeseen consequences? What’s next?
  • Making Organisation Easy
    • The more lengthy a presentation goes on, the more possibilities there are to lose the attentiveness of your audience. However, making a presentation too brief can leave people uninformed and discontented with the essence of the presentation.
  • Organisational Methods
    • It’s important to realise that most people will be able to remember only a few key points from a presentation. Don’t overwhelm the audience with facts that they will disregard as soon as they walk out the door. Focus on a few key points.
  • Classifying and Categorising
    • Categorising information is one way that people make sense of complex topics. A speaker can help people come to grips with complex topics by breaking them down into a few categories.
  • Identifying Appropriate Sources
    • The Internet provides us with an unending stream of information, but how reliable is it? One way to evaluate reliability is to compare data from several different sources. One way to check for bias (especially with controversial topics) is to compare statements by people who have opposing views.
  • Establishing Credibility
    • It is imperative to be sure of your facts. If you make even one factually incorrect statement, some people will doubt everything you say. This is something that holds true wherever you are, including in some of the highest courts in the land.
  • The Importance of Citations
    • When it comes to discovering information on any subject, going right to the leading authorities to find it out is always a sensible move.
      If you are giving a presentation, going to a leading authority in the area you wish to discuss is very wise indeed. Sometimes in a performance, you will find that some of your listeners are sceptical and will challenge the statistics you mention.
  • Writing Your Presentation
    • Most of the time, it’s a bad idea to read a presentation word for word. It’s boring, and it makes it challenging to build a rapport with the audience. Any presentation is a kind of social occasion.
  • Adding a Plan B
    • It is practically unavoidable that at some point, you will encounter unexpected problems in giving presentations. How you handle these problems will determine whether your presentation is a success or not. Some people get very flustered when something goes wrong.
  • Reviewing, Editing and Rewriting
    • Very few first drafts are good enough to be “the draft”. Unless you have immense clarity of thought and eerie foresight, the chances are that you will make a reference later on in your speech that either contradicts something you said before or has a meaning that is not immediately clear to your listeners going based on what you said before.
  • Checking Out the Venue
    • Sometimes a lot of preparation goes into a presentation, taking into account the way the speaker moves, sounds and sees the audience, as well as the visual aids the speaker will use during the presentation. A great deal of preparation should ensure that things go smoothly, but the level of presentation needs to be rivalled by the quality of preparation.
  • Gathering Materials
    • If you are going to use handouts, be sure you have enough. Listeners prefer to take notes. Listeners like to have something to take away from your presentation as a reminder of what you said.
  • A 24 Hour Checklist
    • Presentation: Do you know what you’re going to say in the first two minutes?  Slides and handouts: Have you proofread your slides Logistics: Do you know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there?
  • A Vist from the Boss
    • Sometimes even the best bosses tend to put pressure on you when they would swear they are merely trying to help you. Words of encouragement may well feel as though they are loaded with other meanings.
  • Preparing Mentally
    • In so many cases, the anticipation of an event is the most emotionally charged part of it. The “athlete” analogy is a good one. If you permit yourself to overthink about the bad things that might happen, it becomes almost a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Physical Relaxation Techniques
    • There are two Relaxation Methods. Deep breathing: Sit upright, cross your legs at the ankles or keep your feet flat on the floor. Progressive Relaxation: Tense your muscles so that they are as tightly contracted as possible.
  • Appearing Confident in Front of the Crowd
    • A speaker who fumbles about with his materials presents an impression of poor organisation and lack of interest. The audience presumes that such a speaker hasn’t put significant effort or thought into planning for the presentation. Allow yourself ample time to organise all your materials before you commence your presentation.
  • Starting Off on the Right Foot
    • The opening should be very brief, in most circumstances, one to two minutes. In that short period, you need to present yourself and your topic in a way that will make your audience want to pay attention to. In planning your opening, go back to your analysis of your audience.
  • Using Visual Aids
    • Visual aids can: Clarify data that may be difficult for the audience to grasp from a verbal presentation alone. Charts and graphs are especially helpful for this purpose. They also help to highlight your main ideas.
  • Checking the Volume of Your Voice
    • The more people there are in a place, the louder you will have to speak. People make noise unintentionally by moving around in their seats or shuffling papers. If you find that you have to shout to make yourself heard in the back of the room, then you need a microphone.
  • Adjusting on the Fly
    • Here are some adjustments you could make if the audience seemed to be losing interest. Ask questions. You can also have a member of the audience to come to the front of the room and assist you with a demonstration.
  • Gauging Whether Breaks are Required
    • When you tell people to take a break, tell them exactly when you plan to start again. Fifteen minutes is a standard length for a break. The shorter presentations – those under an hour, will generally not require a break, but if the presentation edges towards an hour and a half, it may well be that offering a break in the middle can be the wisest thing to do.
  • Wrapping Up and Winding Down
    • Sometimes a speaker will conclude a presentation with a question and answer session. If you arrange this, don’t finish the presentation with your response to the final inquiry. It might have little to do with your primary intent.
  • Ground Rules
    • At the end of your presentation, you state, “Does anyone have any questions?” And no one does. What do you do? You could try waiting for 20 seconds or so and then say, “Well, one question people often ask is…” Come up with your own question to show people what kinds of questions you expect.
  • Answering Questions That Sound Like an Attack
    • Responding to hostile questions with an equally hostile response will simply cause the whole process to be tense. Since you are the person at the front of the room, and the person directing the question is sat with several other people, it will merely set you against a larger group of people, making the atmosphere needlessly confrontational.
  • Dealing with Complex Questions
    • The question and answer session traditionally occurs at the close of the presentation, so if you excel at this section, people will remember that very distinctly, as they will surely remember you negatively if you dodge questions or give fraudulent answers. Concluding on a positive note is hugely significant in a presentation, and if you can accomplish that, you are most of the route to being an excellent public speaker.
