Master your talk: Presenting clearly, effectively and to the point
When you perform in front of an audience, the content of what you are saying, your voice and your body language interact on different levels and influence what the audience perceives and how you come across as a speaker. In addition, the brain, and therefore you and each person in the audience, creates their own individual perception ("Bayesian Brain Hypothesis"). This makes it even more difficult to consciously control your effect on the audience.
In this training, we work on harmonising structure and content, speech, voice and body language so that your performance is ready to impress on stage.
After the training, you will have the tools to perform and present with confidence in terms of content, speech and body language

Methods that are used
In this training you will have the chance to speak in front of the group multiple times and thus use what you learned immediately. You will receive theoretical inputs form a rhetoric background as well as from current theoretical considerations (cutting edge) in computational neuroscience. The theory will be illustrated using examples and hands-on exercises. In the criteria-based perception training, the trainer together with the other attendees will go into detail and give you very individual and helpful feedback. The overall goal is to empower you as a speaker.
