pedagogical Pedagogical Methods

Presenting in Public can be very challenging. Because of this we have designed a program where experiencing and overcoming the obstacles rather than discussing the theory is a priority. Participants will make both prepared and improvised Presentations learning how to optimise the effect of the presentation. Each presentation is followed by high quality feedback and reviews. They will be filmed & reviewed. Feedback will come not only from the trainer but also from the audience.
