10-Month program has 4 terms . You can join this program anytime at the beginning of the term. Consistency is KING and public speaking skills can be developed through consistency. This will give us a lot of time to enhance their skills and work together with your child. Our focus is public speaking and also communication skills. We will do a lot of different speeches and also live presentation to parents in the classroom and outdoor. Outdoor will base on availability only. But we will have 4 outdoors for their term graduation.
For the 10-week, is a short course. Once finish, your child graduates. 10-week will have confirm 2 outdoor activities. One as brand ambassador, and another is at a mall during their graduation.
Both programs are also powerful and impactful. 10-Month is consistency and 10-week is intensity.
8) What can they learn within 1 .5-day workshop ? Is it TOO SHORT ?
In this 1.5 days, they will experience a breakthrough. Parents will be coming in on the 2nd day itself to watch their presentation. We will cover the basic of body language, voice and more importantly their guts and breakthrough during the live presentation.
After years of conducting this 1.5 day, we found that the optimum period to show results is 1.5 days.
