How do we work during training in public speaking?

First of all, I put emphasis on practice and exercises. Knowing the theory is the basis, but in the case of public speaking, the most important thing is to practice and build lasting and good habits. During the workshops the participants get the opportunity to experience stress in a safe environment and present their content. Part of the training is feedback and the recording of speeches.

The training also includes practical tips that are proven to work. During the workshops, I also use VR technology to practice speaking.

Organizational matters

I adapt the training to the needs of a given person or company. The recommended duration of the training is 2 days, 8 hours each. There is also the possibility of periodic, weekly classes or shortened 2 or 4-hour workshops in a narrow area. The client determines which areas are to be included in the training.

The number of people who can take part in public speaking workshops on-site or online is 1 to 12. Due to the nature of the training, I do not conduct it in very large groups. When there are more participants, I can give a lecture on public speaking and self-presentation. In this matter, please contact me individually.

Trainer

Magdalena Fialkowska

She has a unique combination of experience and education in many disciplines that help her comprehensively prepare clients for speeches. She gained knowledge of business, sales, business etiquette and the latest standards from her studies at the Warsaw School of Economics. Furthermore, she has extensive experience from working in a corporation and successfully running her own companies. Recently, she has given many interviews on television, press and radio, which reinforced in her mind the significance of self-confidence and self-presentation skills in front of a camera.

The second pillar is psychology and coaching. Magda is a certified UW trainer, a PCC coach accredited by the International Coach Federation. She completed postgraduate studies in coaching, an advanced course in business coaching and several dozen training courses in soft skills. In a few months she will become a master of psychology at SWPS.

The third pillar is stage activity. She was the only Pole to appear in the Cuban musical “Conoce mi Cuba”. She studied the cello in the first degree music school, and later in the second degree jazz vocal class. She has performed at countless concerts and festivals. For many years she has worked to overcome the stage fright that kept her awake at night, and today, supported by her experience and knowledge, she can help other people overcome the same fear.

The fourth pillar of activity is TEDxWarsaw, in which she acts as Head of Speakers. She prepares speakers for their unforgettable speeches and designs their preparation process. So far, she has provided substantive support to speakers from several editions.
