Life is a 24 hour 365 day a year conversation
We never stop speaking to someone about something. If it’s not another human being, you can be certain you are having endless conversations with yourself every day.
We continue that conversation even when we are sleeping; it’s called dreaming.
Apart from breathing, it’s virtually the only thing we are constantly doing.
We owe it to ourselves to get good communicating effectively
Communicating effectively isn’t about standing in front of an audience reading out bullet points on slides.
Most of us are communicating ‘automatically’. Often without appreciating how complex human communication really is.
It’s easy to think that we can simply say something and believe that our listeners will understand and connect with our message.
We are all different
Scientists believe that there are at least 100 billion stars in the ‘observable’ universe. At Mindful presenter we believe that there are at least as many different ways of communicating.
We are all different, that’s what makes life fun as well as interesting.
The key to personal growth, success and happiness is learning to communicate effectively with each other.
What is Mindful Presenting?
If you asked us that question in one of our workshops we wouldn’t respond by saying ,‘that’s a great question’.
Such an answer often lacks sincerity.
It disrespects the questions others may have asked before and it’s an automatic response.
This is how we would respond
Mindful presenter was created to help people to communicate effectively.
We focus on each of the 20 opportunities listed above, together with many more.
– Removes a great deal of the anxiety, stress and difficulty of understanding and owning your own voice.
– Gives you the personal presence, confidence and gravitas to connect authentically with yourself as a speaker and also your audience.
– Breaks down barriers, personal limiting beliefs and the unconscious need to ‘conform’.
– Allows you to speak with the paradox of authority and vulnerability inherent in each of us and not being afraid to do so to get the results you want.
– Substantially increase your faith and confidence in yourself and your audience.
– Helps you to feel good about yourself knowing that you’ve not only made a difference but that you have been true to yourself.
