The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) recently hosted Breezi Speaking for a training programme, ACE Your Presentation, on the 13th of March and organised by the UNMC Toastmasters Club with support from the UNMC Alumni and Donors Relations office (ADRO). The half-day programme was focused on acquainting the 39 participants with academic presentation skills.
The programme was officiated by Salinee from UNMC ADRO and conducted by Breezi's Training Director, Ali, who was assisted by Dinesh. The 4-hour programme included several educational and practice sessions including:
Picnic with Panic, a session to help control their fear of Public Speaking
Start with Bang, a session with 9 techniques to start a powerful presentation
End with Power, a session of different styles to leave an impactful final impression
Magic of Three, a session of Rhetorical devices
Spice it Up, a session to cover basics of delivery skills in Voice and Body language
SlideCraft, a session on how to use slides correctly, effectively and with ease
Off the Cuff, an impromptu speaking practice (themed on sales) for volunteers
Speech Practice, a prepared speaking practice with written feedback for all
The programme was well-received by the attendees with a 94% satisfaction rate*. "This programme was especially packed with many educationals as some of the trainees had important presentations coming up soon after the day. We managed to cover quite a lot of different techniques and aspects in Public Speaking and Presentation skills. Everyone showed tremendous improvement by the end of the programme and we saw exceptional presentations from some of the trainees. I absolutely enjoyed doing this programme". Said trainer Ali.
UNMC Toastmasters Club was the main organiser for the event. This event served partially as a fund-raising to support the Toastmasters Club in UNMC.
