Communicate with Charisma, Clarity & Compassion
Keith Scott and Rebecca Scott —TALLsmall Productions
The fastest way to become a better public speaker — whether standing in a front of a crowd, in a staff meeting or in a conversation with one person — is to get rid of filler words (ah, um, like, you know, so....), to purge other weak phrases, and to harness stronger body language. Body language is up to 70% of communication. Your group will participate in a series of entertaining games designed to strengthen wording, purge the words and phrases that clutter conversations and gain a better understanding of body language.
