We video presentation practice sessions!
Video feedback is an important tool used in Presentation Training Switzerland courses and coaching sessions.
From the very first practice session, we video trainees. The initial video feedback allows us to create a baseline. Then, students can use it to learn through self-discovery. They can monitor their own body position, hear their voice and identify individual habits and style differences. Below are a few more specific examples:
Body -- For example, it encourages overly stiff presenters to move, while highlighting those who jiggle too much. We can also catch bad posture and closed body language, while promoting bolder open movements.
Voice -- The video enables one to hear the speed of his words and inspires the use of clear, short sentences with frequent pauses. While a student may feel that he is dramatically changing his voice, the video demonstrates the need to change more.
Confidence -- The ongoing video practice sessions also help presenters to gain confidence, as often course participants feel more nervous than they look. They become aware of its use as a practice tool and see their progress from the first to last video.
Charisma -- It may also be used to develop a presenter’s individual style and charisma by testing various presenting style ideas.
Some students may fear the use of video feedback during the presentation training practice sessions, but we do this in a comfortable setting and in a gentle and encouraging way.
