It’s been a desire of mine to upgrade my public speaking skills this year. So it couldn’t have been more apt when Nuffnang offered me the opportunity to attend a course by Speech Academy Asia along with 7 other influencers, where we learnt and honed our skills in public speaking, hosting and interviewing!
Growing up, I’ve had the chance to host school wide events such as National Day or Chinese New Year events. My most recent stint was hosting for Jeunesse Singapore’s launch in Suntec before a 1000 strong crowd. However I have never been professionally trained apart from the rehearsals and pronunciation checks by school teachers. So to be able to pick up practical tips like; standing with your feet firmly planted on the ground, watching your posture, pausing to think before speaking spontaneously and thus minimizing mistakes and superfluous words, engaging the audience has been invaluable – these tips and advice coupled with practice with peers within the classroom setting has greatly increased my confidence and skills for future public speaking opportunities. I know that I am now prepared for gigs when the opportunities arise! 🙂
Special shoutout and thanks to Shawn and Matthew for arranging, teaching and coaching us – your presence, advice and tips will go with us a long, long way. I hope we will be students that will do you proud.
If you’d like to improve your confidence and communication skills, I highly recommend Speech Academy Asia.
