I talk – Fachhochschule Dortmund – University of Applied Sciences and Arts

Skillful speaking and presenting when it really counts

Sometimes it really comes down to it: the decisive presentation of a project, the defense of a doctoral thesis, the inaugural lecture in a new department or the first speech in a new company. Stage fright, a shaky voice, the fear of critical questions – all of these can get to us.

In this workshop, learn how to counteract unhealthy stress when presenting and speaking. Refine your perception of yourself and others, deepen your understanding of communication processes, and work toward (even) greater calm and composure. You will work on the playful interrelation of alert activity of the senses, theoretical knowledge, inner order and sovereign body expression from different sides in practical doing. Experience the complexity of this interplay in collegial exchange and in the feedback of the group. Video recordings support the integration of what you have worked on into your experience.

After attending the workshop you will be able to (even better)

  • present yourself to people with convincing body language and authentic charisma
  • maintain inner calm and balance even in challenging and provocative situations
  • get your ideas and content across with a lively look and alert audience contact.
