About the Course
The program will deal with various elements of speaking on stages such as as-speech scripting, delivery, body language, and voice modulation. The program also deals with how to handle a corporate presentation and teaches you the art of storytelling, that would be helpful while pitching an idea, convincing your superiors or successfully closing a sales pitch.
The program will be conducted over 6-weekends, with 15 hours of classroom sessions. During each session, a new aspect of mastering the art of stage will be dealt with. It's a practical program. You learn and practice at the session. Demo speeches will be delivered and discussed. Post each session, you would be given a small assignment of preparing a 300-350 word speech ( 3 min), that needs to be delivered in the following session. The speeches would be mentored and corrected by us during the course of the week, to help you learn the art of speech crafting.
Assignments need to be taken seriously; else the program wouldn't be effective. It is a 6 WEEK PROGRAM, not just 15 hours of classroom sessions. The engagement with the mentor would be throughout the program. At the end of the entire duration, the program will equip you to handle stage with greater confidence and comfort.
Your commitment will result in a life-changing experience!
Class Timings: Sundays 10.30 pm- 1 pm
Location: Clayworks, opposite Garuda Mall, Commissariat Road, off MG Road
