Glossophobia or speech anxiety is the fear of public speaking.  The word glossophobia derives from the Greek γλῶσσα glōssa, meaning tongue, and φόβος phobos, fear or dread.
It has been estimated that 75% of all people experience some degree of anxiety/nervousness when public speaking.
In fact, surveys have shown that most people fear public speaking more than they fear death. If untreated, public speaking anxiety can lead to serious detrimental effects on one's quality of life, career goals and other areas.

In our modern world, full of information over load, we are bombarded with messages and ideas. When we stand to present to clients or colleagues we are often faced with a sea of distracted faces, each distracted and absorbed by a stream of information filling their busy minds or, worse, streaming through their hands on smartphones. It has, therefore, never been more important for you to articulate your ideas in a way which captivates your audience and gets the result you want.
On Communicate with Impact you will learn that by focusing on two key elements of communicating your message – ‘What’ you say and ‘How’ you say it – you will captivate, engage and deliver your message with genuine impact and results.
This two day, experiential workshop is designed to equip delegates with the skills to structure their message to achieve the desired outcome and explore and develop a personal style of delivery so that every message delivered comes over in a style that is truly unique to you.
You will leave the workshop confident in the techniques used by the world’s greatest orators to structure information in ways that influence and persuade audiences towards new thinking.
You will experience how to captivate an audience around a future vision or a story and to present in a way that is both compelling and engaging.
You will spend your time on the workshop surrounded by like-minded individuals who are all keen to turn their good ideas into great ones.
You will build presence, authority and a new-found ability to captivate an audience and ensure their focus remains on you and your message.
Communicate with Impact is delivered as an active and participative workshop where each delegate has the opportunity to experience and practice both the ‘What’ and the ‘How’ of presenting and communicating their message. Participants will work on their own, relevant content in order to create a presentation that is both meaningful and impactful to them and their chosen audience.
The ‘What’ of Communicate with Impact creates understanding for delegates on how to best to structure and design content so it has the desired impact. Delegates will understand how to persuade or sell, to engage or captivate and to provide messages of clarity that will resonate with every listener. Different situations require different techniques and each is explored and developed fully on this two-day workshop. The learning draws on examples from the world’s most legendary speeches combined with simple, yet effective, information structures presented in your own workbook.
The ‘How’ of Communicate with Impact ensures that the final presentation is authentic and unique to you as an individual. Here we focus on presentation as a performance, creating opportunities for delegates to stretch their range of presentation style, to address issues of confidence in speaking publicly and to learn how to engage voice, tone and posture in a way that creates the greatest possible impact in the room. Delegates visibly grow in confidence and stature over the two days as they uncover their own unique style and realise the impact that they are able to bring to their content.
The workshop draws on best practice examples of the world’s greatest orators coupled with practical learning drawn from communication theory, improv drama and executive coaching.
Every delegate will leave with personalised feedback from both the facilitators and also other delegates that will inform on where their strengths lie in their communication style and also how best to improve. All participants are given the opportunity to practice and fine tune their work throughout.
The course is designed for a maximum of only 24 delegates and is delivered by 3 facilitators. This high ratio of facilitators to delegates ensures that the learning is maximized, that delegates are presented with multiple perspectives and that the experience is personal and tailored to each person’s specific objectives.
The workshop is experiential throughout and also practical and inspiring. We guarantee every session will be lighthearted and fun – in fact, laughter is guaranteed in addition to a fantastic learning experience. We learn best when we feel relaxed and perform at our best when we feel confident and authentic. We will create this for you in the Communicate with Impact workshop and you will be amazed at the results.

ESP – extra sensory perception - Going beyond the senses, to understand some information which might not have been known directly through the 5 senses. We are here to explore a mysterious side of the human brain . getting to know oneself through ones extra sensory perception.
ESP is about precognition, telepathy, psychometry, clairaudience, and clairvoyance. Its about knowing things beyond the rational knowing. (Wiki) Telepathy – Many people are intrigued and in awe of how telepathy works. Call it a skill or call it art , it is a process that can be learnt. During the ancient era it was used when men went into the jungle and language was not so prevalent. Its the Art of thought transference.
Many of us still use it and experience it , sometimes when you are thinking about someone and that person just happens to call you or even to meet you. It was a telepathic communication that the receiver accepted.
Telepathy is about using the subconscious mind to connect with people at the subconscious level. Many a times with our loved ones, usual verbal communication fails. Telepathy is an excellent process to heal at the internal level and communicate to enhance relationships with family and friends.
Living in a social world and especially in an age where despite the world getting smaller digitally, we have distanced mentally.
So These are human qualities, and just because we haven’t explored them we think of it as something special. Its not. The human brain gets trillions of information. And we all know how limited the logical thought process can get.
The subconscious is the data store house of information, and with training we all can use it to avail of excellent results to enrich our day to day life.
Telepathic communication is simple and easy, we utilize it daily. Yet because it seems a mystery we chose to ignore the best part of ones life.
Telepathy or any ESP process is more of developing ones Attitude and Believing.
