The TED format in a company!

Who hasn’t heard of TED Talks?  It’s hard to imagine, since the format has become so popular and is now on everyone’s lips. It must be said that most of the time the subjects are very exciting, and the speakers are often brilliant.  Created in 1984, the aim of this conference format is to share…

The effects of stage fright on diction

We often hear the advice to young awkward actors: “It’s easy, you just have to believe it!” On the face of it, one could say that the same applies to a speaker who has trouble expressing his message. Unfortunately, it is not so simple. Because the slightest emotion, the smallest doubt, the shortest gap in…

The exercise of presenting and more generally of public speaking, has the particularity of confronting us regularly with these little shortcomings, which we…

Have you ever had the impression you were slowing others down?

Training on public speaking has always held a certain charm… Because, when you think about it, nobody really wants to be there. There’s a simple explanation; those who love public speaking rarely feel concerned, often wrongly, and rarely participate in these types of training courses. And the others know full well that they are going…

Can you access 100% of your intelligence?

You regularly read in our Thursday tips about the need to create desire. Therefore, when you’re in front of people who are afraid, suspicious or who have prejudices, you cannot settle for arguing your case. First you need to prepare them to listen to you. But we must recognize that there are beliefs that die-hard.…
