“A smile will gain you ten more years of life.”
Those are the words from a fortune cookie one of our coaches received after eating at her favorite Chinese restaurant. We can’t speak to whether a smile will help you live longer. But we certainly do believe that a smile will help you connect with your audiences better. Learning how to connect with audiences is exactly what we teach during our communication skills programs. At Speechworks, we teach our clients to maximize their ability by focusing our programs on two areas:
How to organize a message that is tight, simple and focused on audience needs. Speechworks teaches a simple Formula for focusing on listener needs. We believe that if you have strong content, you will be more confident when you get up to speak.
How to deliver the message in a style that connects with the listeners. We focus on eye contact, gestures, voice energy, and facial energy. Our coaches will give you private feedback on where you most need to improve.
Consider attending an upcoming workshop. We’ll teach you how to connect with audiences. And if you believe the fortune cookie, you’ll also live ten more years.
