Dear Friends of ProSkills Trainers,

2. Upcoming Dare To Speak™ for Executives & Professionals - 28 & 29 August (weekend) - SPECIAL PRICE FOR MUSLIMS DURING RAMADAN (RM 350)
Dare To Speak™ Public Speaking Programme for Executives & Professionals
5 & 6 July 2010
@ Crystal Crown Hotel, PJ
As wished for in my last report, we received a good number of early registrations and successfully moved back to Crystal Crown Hotel for this session.
We had 9 participants including several interesting ones (all were interesting in their own ways). Some came from outstation (1 from Kuala Trengganu, 2 from Johor Bahru). There was even one who came from Kazakhstan! No, just kidding, actually she's been working in Malaysia for 3 years...
The trainer Azmi Shahrin had to entertain
the 9 participants for 2 days!
The course started and progressed in the normal way. The participants had to learn many public speaking skills and apply them one after another, or rather one on top of another. In any case, the trainer did a good job at pointing out errors early on so that the participants had more time to practise in the correct way even if the theory part of it came later. Practice is key! Basically, the participants went through all the modules from overcoming nervousness, to body language, vocal variety and correct english pronunciation. They learned very fast and became pretty good at it. One innovation this time was the impromptu speech session where each participant had to write a question or topic on a piece of paper and put the paper in a container for another to pick up (and speak on the topic). It was fun because some of the questions were very interesting.

For the group activity, we had a debate on the topic "Women are the cause of all marital problems" with the ladies proposing and the men opposing. Everyone enjoyed themselves speaking under fire (opposing teams were allowed to throw paper balls at each other). We also found the time to watch the video of Martin Luther King's famous "I Have A Dream" speech, considered the best speech ever delivered in human history.
A cert to prove you've "been there, done it"
The course concluded with a final speech from each participant and the presentation of certificates. In my closing speech, I noted that this was the 10th session we had had since we started in January 2009. This means that we have consistently conducted this class once every 2 months since that time! Should give myself a pat on the back!
Ok, we look forward to more classes and helping more people.
