WHY THIS COURSE IS IMPORTANT?
In a highly competitive Business environment, the need for professionalism becomes increasingly important.
This is the need of the Hour!
Disciplined and highly motivated Managers with a high degree of Oral Communication and Presentations Skills, are definite asset in educating selected Target Groups. Thus, they should be well trained persons with highly developed skills in the Art of Public Speaking, to supplement their own technical knowledge of the subjects they wish to present.

This Training Seminar has been carefully designed and developed over the years to achieve this objective. The Methodology employed will facilitate effective interaction and develop a positive attitude :
A Win-win Approach in every Communication - related situation.
THE STUTTERER AND THE EFFECTIVE SPEAKER
The Speaker was introduced after dinner. He came to the microphone and began haltingly:
"My F-F-Friends, when I arrived h-h-here this evening, only God and I knew what I was g-g-going to say. Now
.. Only God knows!"
This Speaker was obviously nervous, unprepared and had drawn a memory blank. This is a common phenomenon among untrained Speakers, who are called upon to address audiences. This could be the predicament of untrained Managers, who have in the course of their duties, to make presentations and address Company personnel or outside audiences.
This Speaker, realizing his shortcoming and the embarrassment he would face from time to time, took many years of Speech Training to get back to the Microphone with confidence. But finally he was on his feet, entertaining his audiences with finesse, as a brilliant Speaker.
"SPEAKRAFT" will make you a good Speaker who can reach out to audiences, hold their attention and earn their respect.
