POWERtalk graduates speak easy
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..
