TJ Walker All Access - The Ultimate Way to Become a Master Communicator, Speaker and Media Spokesperson

Course description

Imagine yourself facilitating a major event featuring leading thinkers in your industry. You can lead discussions and bring out the best ideas from competing viewpoints.

In this How to Be a Facilitator course you will learn the following:

*The difference between being a good speaker and a good facilitator

*When and how to interrupt

*How not to speak too much or too little

*How to put the spotlight on other people ideas, not your own.

*How to introduce other people properly

This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.

The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.

This course contain numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library.
