Online Public Speaking for Students – Batch 12 – Dubai, London, Switzerland, India - August 2020
As part of Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, communicating with people is equally important as reasoning and logical thinking.

While a child may find it greatly difficult to find his voice and express his ideas; by sharpening these skills, a person feels more empowered and make good use of them to his fullest advantage. Whether you are from India or abroad, your persistent concern as a student would be to speak impeccably in your academic and social zones. The more outspoken one gets, the more he finds his roots firmly into the ground and excel in his academic career. As one is technically sound through education, certificate programs, projects and more, the educational provider may not have the bandwidth to work closely on your speaking skill set. You may be the last person who may be asked for his perspectives to the class discussions.

Parents in and around the world want their children to stumble upon these blocks but find ways to quickly overcome them as fast as they can.

The primary objectives of this program was to enable a child to speak with full of joy and mirth, and project a confident and joyful persona in all his spheres of life. Many of us have faced these challenges and have come across lifeless in our speech and presentations not because of the intent but mainly due to fear, nervousness or sheer unawareness of many tools that can enhance the overall image of the speaker.
