The distinction between presentations skills training and a public speaking coach is that general public speaking skills tend to be for people who are just beginning in their career and need to speak in public. They’re mainly looking to speak with confidence.
Presentation skills training is for people who already have a fair degree of confidence and really need to polish and hone these skills in their work and their life.
Presentation skills are used in every aspect of your life. Whether you work in the community, whether you have a job in a corporate organisation, or even among friends. Some people lack the confidence to speak up and speaking up is what it’s all about.
But it’s much more than that.
Advanced presentation skills = speaking with confidence and intelligence
This is the difference between basic public speaking skills and advanced presentation training. The science of speaking is a learnable skill.
When you learn advanced presentation techniques you’ll learn to communicate in a more focused manner in these areas:-
There are particular skills involved when you need to persuade, influence, inform or entertain. They can be broken down into three main areas:-
What sets David Julian Price apart from other speaking coaches is that he specifically works more on non-verbal communication, because this is where the power comes from, particularly when you need to influence.
A global approach When you present, David Julian Price looks at the whole picture of you speaking. It’s not just about the words you say, how you say them, or whether you’re speaking clearly or not. It’s the overall impact these individual skill sets have on your audience. Getting the right mix to suit your personality and audience is a learned craft.
When David Julian Price coaches you, he instantly assesses…
All of these non-verbal visual components are built into the presentation by a speaker who can present well.
On the flip, a speaker who can speak well, may come across as confident, but if they don’t have the advanced nuanced skills of the visual components in place too, their physiology may not be congruent with their message. The result is they won’t engage the audience.
The main difference between public speaking skills and high-level presentation training is that with the latter, the speaker will understand what their audience is thinking.
To really speak to the audience, you must answer the questions going on inside their head.
This is the key. David calls the audience’s thoughts ‘Stanley’.
Everyone has a Stanley. Stanley resides in your head. This is the voice of the audience that’s saying…
”something’s not quite right about what this person is saying, but I don’t know what it is.”
Have you ever been in an audience and the speaker isn’t resonating with you? You don’t know why, but the way they’re giving their presentation just doesn’t make sense?
Some reasons why a speaker’s message doesn’t land with the audience:-
As you can see, there are many reasons why speakers are unable to communicate clearly. To really get your message across so you influence and move your audience to action, you need a qualified, experienced presentation skills coach and mentor to identify the what and the why of the nuances of your presentation.
Small group coaching is done in the same way as 1-on-1 coaching, except everyone is coached in front of a group.We’ve found in previous workshops this method gives validation to the rebuilding of the deconstructed presentation.
David checks in with the group when he makes a correction, by asking them how the changes he’s done look and sound. The audience validation to the changes builds motivation and validates to the person being coached the benefits of the changes to their presentation.
David consciously uses the technique of audience validation to build the confidence and motivation for the person being coached. The speaker then knows that what David’s saying is actually effective and making a difference, and has validity. Speaking and presenting Coach vs Golf Coach . You may be surprised how these 2 skilled genres have similarities in the coaching style.
David offers Presentation Skills Workshops using the global approach via the Hot-Seat Coaching method. This is how you’ll become highly competent, highly effective and you’ll own the room whenever you speak.
David explains, he demonstrates, then he gets you to practice. David’s presentation training style connects with all learning types. I think it’s a very important way of training and it’s something that has been lost. Even though it’s an old way that is practical, we’ve lost this skill. David’s way of language brings it down to basics.
That’s what I think the bonus is with David. By gauging the audience with their different learning types, David’s learning style connects with all.
