The way one expresses orally reveals instantly the strengths and the weaknesses of one’s thoughts, of one’s reasoning… The first contact between two people is generally oral and therefore determines largely how the relationship will develop.

Most people consider speech as a natural competence: some have a natural talent which others don’t have! The way a talk is organised follows some rules, whose efficiency has been demonstrated.

– ALM’s training courses will give you an awareness of the overall mechanisms related to oral expression. They will improve talk strategies (planning, introduction, development, thought, conclusion), speaking in public (voice, body language, attitude) and listening.

They will offer the ability to find and adopt the appropriate attitude when speaking in public in different conditions. They will meet the needs related to oral expression in professional situations.

This training course is organised in two sessions and deals with all the elements to be taken into consideration in order to appear professional when speaking in public.


Individual assessment and programme:

  • Practical exercises, in-situation: formal public speaking (communication, press conference…), institutional public speaking (short speech, presentation…) or freer public speaking (conversation…).
  • Individual and group exercises: role-play games, simulation…

Getting to know oneself and one’s image

With a special focus on the speaker, this module deals with the problems of stress, personal image, self positioning…. It establishes the trainees’ capacities to express themselves orally.
