POWERtalk grad­u­ates speak easy

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - SUP­PLIED

POWERtalk Mata­mata ran an In­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised POWERtalk short course with the six par­tic­i­pants suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing and grad­u­at­ing from the course.

Grad­u­ates Liz Ather­ton, Linda Matthews, Rosa Wal­lace, Anna Blatler and Pa­tri­cia and Ge­orge Lit­tle­wood com­pleted the course.

POWERrtalk mem­ber Caro­line Hooten says the group, rang­ing from se­nior school stu­dents to re­tirees, found the course gave them new skills which en­hanced ex­ist­ing at­tributes and in­creased their con­fi­dence.

The in­ter­ac­tive course cov­ered plat­form pres­ence, body lan­guage and ges­tures, vo­cal ef­fec­tive­ness, speech con­struc­tion, us­ing and pre­sent­ing with tech­ni­cal and vis­ual aids. It cul­mi­nated in putting it all to­gether when the par­tic­i­pants, util­is­ing the skills gained, pre­sented a short speech.

Mem­ber­ship in POWERtalk Mata­mata is open to any­one who is in­ter­ested in learn­ing POWERtalk com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills in ef­fec­tive speak­ing, dy­namic lead­er­ship, and sound men­tor­ing.

The Mata­mata club meets on a Mon­day at 5.30pm at Mata­mata Union Par­ish Church..
