What Form does the Training take?
Alec customises his training to a trainee’s needs. He can provide exercises, which promote relaxation, good breathing, vocal warmth, body language, posture and projection of personality, fluency, voice pitch and authority. You can do practical work on openings and introductions and closings. Also useful work with aids such PowerPoint, acetates, video, slides, and black and white board.
You can practice your presentation in front of someone who will give you balanced feedback that will build your confidence at the same time as offering practical tips on how to improve it. Alec has a lot of experience training people one to one, and finds that as confidence builds trainees often surprise themselves when they find they can express themselves in a way that they have never done before.
In groups other trainees become your audience and you theirs. This helps to build trust and enhance engagement and communication skills. Many trainees find it useful to be video-ed doing their presentations to identify their strengths and weaknesses, so that improvements can be made. However Alec will only use this tool for effective training, so that your confidence is not undermined. It can be especially useful in one to one training.
