“Speak so that I can see you”.
These words belong to famous Hamann.
In the 21st century, it’s a reality that among the values that make the people most happy are knowledge and communication. In our world that has become global, information flow is actualized with the communicaion network that is world-embracing. It’s no doubt that this network will develope and intensify. However, how much technology improves and how much the network intensifies, there is always people at the core. That means that there is dialogue. Whatever our knowledge accumulation, our talents, skills which may be incredibly rich are, if we can’t present them to the person in front of us correctly, properly, persuasively and with a good speech, then it is impossible to see the benefits of this wealth. Therefore, for this reason, conveying these to our listeners by using our language correctly and with a proper articulation and effective diction will bring us a superior identification.
For this, there may be some questions coming to one’s mind.
*The first one of these questions, do you get excited and feel uneasy when you are asked to stand up and make a speech to a few people whatever your occupation is?
*The second question is, do you have difficulty in choosing the words and making sentences when you are expressing your feelings and thoughts?
*Thirdly, do you get overexcited, your heart beats faster, your mouth gets dry and you perspire?
*Fourth, do you sometimes forget what you want to say and fear to get into a difficult position among the people that you address?
When you answer yes, even only to two of these questions and maybe not at all, then a new question comes up.
The question is:
Would you like to address the persons using your language correctly and attracting the attention of the persons listening to you and keeping their attention continuously?
It’s very natural that the answer we all give is a “yes”.
Because, using our language correctly, to own good articulation and diction and more importantly speaking the body language well are the essential prior condition of success.
It shouldn’t be forgotten that a healthy communication is in proportion to properly and effectively speaking.
Therefore, whatever our occupation is, if want to be successful, market our goods better, then it is certain that we are obliged to establish a healthy communication.
Today, we evaluate oratory as a branch of art (art of saying words-rhetoric) and effective communication rules that we have to apply in the society, in our business life and even in our house are given correctly in seminars.
Some questions may come to your mind before the seminar.
*How can I get over my excitement when speaking in front of society?
*How can I speak sure of myself?
*What do I need to do when I speak in front of a microphone or a camera?
*How can I attract the attention of the listeners and make sure that the attraction is continuous?
*What visual things that I can use when making a speech which will support my speech?
*What should my behavior be in conferences, promotions and meetings?
*What do I need to be successful and make an effective speech?
*Do I know Turkish correctly, am I using it properly?
*How do I need to use the body language?
*What is body posture, what does it tell? How should my gestures and mimics be?
*How can I express my feelings with my eyes and looks?
*Which techniques should I apply to create positive relations with my environment?
*What’s communication? Which factors are there in communication?
*What are the techniques to establish a healthy communication?
*What are the effects of culture on communication?
*What do we need to do to establish better human relations?
We can increase these questions.
Do not doubt that you’ll get the answers to all of these questions with nothing missing at the end of the seminar.
