Course Outline:

More than any other profession, lawyers need highly sophisticated communication skills.  And the public expects them to be excellent at presentation and public speaking.  Which, we know, is often far from the truth.  Many lawyers believe themselves to be hopeless at it and will shy away from any opportunity to speak in public - whether it is in a team meeting, a client interview or, horror of horrors, when facing an audience of clients or, worse still, other lawyers.

But there is no reason why this should be so.  You have to be smart to become a lawyer.  Being smart includes understanding that your lack of confidence in public speaking is a self-limiting belief, and that such beliefs can be changed.

There are ways of banishing self-doubt and nervousness; there are skills which can be easily acquired to turn you into a formidable and sought-after speaker.  These skills can turn you into an impressive rainmaker, the ‘go-to’ lawyer in your field.  They can help you enormously in your career: a confident and skilled presenter soon gets noticed within the company or firm and it is undoubtedly true that the meek do not inherit the earth.

So, forget your nervousness, don’t doubt that you can do it.  And, even if you are a seasoned speaker, there are always new tricks for an old dog to learn.

Come and learn the essential tips, skills and tactics to transform yourself into a brilliant speaker.

The course will cover the followings:

  • What’s So Special About Lawyers?
  • Planning to Present
  • Put Your Audience First
  • Researching Your Audience
  • Focusing Your Message
  • Presenting and Selling
  • Planning the Structure
  • The Three High-Level Elements:
    1. Introduction
    2. The Main Body
    3. The Conclusion
