      Speak in public
      to gain impact

      "Theatre at the service of the relationship"

      By Hélène SERRES

      This module consists of 2 lessons during which you will learn to master the tools and techniques of communication for effective public speaking (in front of a large or smaller audience, face-to-face or remotely). 

      « What we conceive well is clearly stated,
      And the words to say it come easily. » Nicolas Boileau

      We obviously agree on the fact that it has happened to all of us one day, after speaking, to regret having forgotten an important element, to have lost our temper, to have answered on the side because that we had not listened to the question etc…. The report is without appeal, the stress overwhelmed us and we did not make the expected intervention.

      To remedy these regrets, preparation is essential if one wants to master the tools of public communication.

      Communication needs are many and varied. Expressing yourself in front of a large assembly or in front of a few people in person or remotely, managing a team or reporting to a superior, are all situations requiring an absence of stress, to keep a clear mind in order to affirm your words calmly. and efficiently.

      A good speaker captivates his audience and interacts with him. He will be listened to and his message will be integrated by the public.

      To do this, we must move from the position of author (substance) to the position of actor (form) and never forget that a speaker will first be seen before being heard in order to be understood , but also that 93% of message impact is non-verbal and 7% is verbal. This shows the importance of managing emotions when speaking in public.


      Several points will be addressed during these 2 sessions:

      1/ Exercises in situation with immediate feedback from the other participants and the speaker to become aware of the points to be worked on: Gestures, articulation, breathing, clarity of the subject, time management, evolution between the beginning and the end of the intervention, etc.

      2/ The technique of the good speaker:

      Working on these five elements means becoming aware of them, knowing how to use them and putting them at our service.

      • Breathing
      • Joint
      • Posture
      • Voice
      • Glance

      3/ Stress management

      Faced with an anxiety-provoking situation, we have three possible reactions:

      Control / Flight / Paralysis.

      Through exercises we will learn to recognize and identify emotions, to better manage and control them.

      • Before speaking
      • During the speech and especially at the beginning.

      4/ The content of the message: How to capture attention, captivate and be understood.

      Find consistency between WHO is speaking, for WHAT to say, HOW to say it, WHY to say it, TO WHOM and WHERE!

      How to capture attention: set a frame

      • Who am I talking to
      • what is my goal
      • What are my beliefs

      How to captivate

      • Why am I speaking
      • How I get my message across

      How to be understood

      • The public must leave with strong and clear ideas
      • My personality at the service of my subject.

      5/ The different situations of public speaking

      large audience

      Meeting room

      Online meeting


      Work meeting with speaking in the middle of the others.

      Speaking with a lot of improvisation and interaction with the public or prepared speech, all situations are to be considered in order to master them.
