Welcome Pack for
Speaking Clinic for Broadcasters
Congratulations on making history! This may surprise you. Less than 1% of Nigeria's broadcasters, anchors and presenters have gone through professional training or coaching in Public Speaking. So, you are making history and we celebrate you.
The most important item to bring for this iconic empowering journey is a refreshed you! The truth is a tired body or fatigued mind is of no use in a learning environment. Please ensure that the day(s) leading to the commencement of the programme, you do what it takes to avoid stress and not skip your daily "Me Time" i.e. time to yourself.
Our years of experience has repeatedly proven that attendees of conferences, workshops and seminars tend to misplace handbooks, workbooks and publications issued at such events. However, they forever cherish their favourite diary and/or notebook. Therefore, we implore you to bring that favourite notebook of yours along so you can "ink" those powerful nuggets and learning points. This is pivotal to retention of what you learn as people retain 50% of what they see as opposed to 10% of what they hear. Of course, when you write something down, you are the first to see it. Ultimately, you increase retention when you write things down.
