Engage was founded with the aim of providing a platform for people to share their stories and experiences to a live and online audience so as to Inform. Inspire and Influence. (https://www.youtube.com/engagetalk)
Engage has developed and refined a speaker preparation process that we use to curate speakers’ stories and experiences and capture them for the benefit of varied audiences locally and internationally. Numerous speakers gave us feedback that they found the formal preparation process that includes communication coaching and peer reviews useful as they prepared and during delivery of their messages.
Audience members and people who knew different people who’d spoken at Engage sent inquiries on how they can access the training and coaching without necessarily having to speak at Engage Platforms. This prompted the initiation of the “Engage Masterclass.”
The Engage open masterclass is a series of 6 three-hour sessions held twice a week from 6pm – 9pm. Each class has a maximum of 8 participants per cohort to ensure personal attention, useful interaction between the participants and with the facilitators. To date, we have had over 60 individuals successfully complete the open class.
Do you want to build your confidence when speaking in public or be a memorable speaker and presenter? From message structuring, body language, voice modulation to use of visual aids and resources, the Engage Masterclass will provide you with the skills you need to persuasively speak with confidence, power and presence. During each session, participants will deliver/make a presentation and thereafter receive constructive, personalized feedback from their peers and the Engage coaches. The feedback focuses on not only highlighting one’s strengths and weaknesses but also providing practical lessons on how to communicate with greater impact based on one’s personality, message and audience.
