Induction Session: Day 1 | Personality Development & Public Speaking -Malvika Subba
GCI conducted workshop on Personality Development & Public Speaking designed for the newly enrolled students of A Level on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at Seminar Hall.
“Personality, Presentation, and Public Speaking are key skills in today’s dynamic world. Keeping with this thought GCI provided a platform for the students to identify their individual talent and excel in their chosen fields with self- confidence and self-determination.
Speaking in public is an art that is mastered by a few. It is the passionate wish of all to have effective public speaking capability but get discouraged by the obstacles that occur while speaking in front of an audience. This session offered comfort to every student and provided them with adequate means to speak effectively and convey their point of view forcefully.
Students fully utilized the session, and helped themselves to overcome initial anxiety and fear when one faces the public first time. Students were informed of the basics of body language required to convey effectively to the targeted group; to formulate proper gestures and were taught how shyness plays a part in improper communication. They get assisted thoroughly to discard that habit for effective public speaking. Moreover, Students were made aware of the requirement of various groups depending upon the location, age, race, sex and education etc.
Session was focused on “Each diverse group requires different presentation that should be in line with their thinking and requirement” which helped to be prepared to face the feedback from the audience so that inconvenience and difficult questions can be answered convincingly.
We believe that A level students need to be good at content development, audience interaction and management, total control over emotions and voice, spontaneity of expression/ language, ease of handling question and answer session and proper use of visual aids for complete dissemination of information.
