Mike is learning how to integrate verbal and nonverbal communications to convey, in clear and memorable ways, the quality advantages that CarinaCreative can bring to businesses who need those quality advantages.
When speaking effectively to groups of people, tone of voice is a key vocal skill along with being genuinely 'real.' In addition, you can learn how to:
- organize and prepare speeches: presentations that have clarity and create “sticky memories” in listeners
- capture and hold attention by “choreographing” a presentation for impact
- select and sequence visuals for optimum impact (rather than creating distractions)
- deliver prepared speeches/presentations as though you’re speaking ‘off the cuff,’ with both verbal and nonverbal communications**
**Evidence: In one long-term study, 93% of communications was delivered nonverbally—facial expressions, gestures, stance, and…tone of voice.
