Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan, 2013/11/06 - Performance of Speaking released their first Online e-Course for Global Speakers, aimed at replacing the “Fear of Speaking” with the Skills of Speaking - TomJDolan.com.
Performance of Speaking has delivered the conversational, stress-free environment of their onsite Speaking Workshops in their first Online e-Course. The video e-Course, hosted at Udemy.com, teaches the fundamental Skills of Speaking & Presenting focusing on the Performance Skills of Speaking.
The widely accepted term “Fear of Speaking” discourages many non-speakers from acquiring training in Public Speaking. Performance of Speaking declares the “Fear of Speaking is Dead” and encourages Workshop members to look more carefully into the root causes of their Speaking anxiety. The cause, almost universally, is something other than a fear of speaking at meetings, conferences, forums, and other group functions.
“Speaking Skills are learned through physical trial & error, not by reading a book or listening to a lecture. It’s exciting to see Workshop members finish their program with a reduced or eliminated resistance to Public Speaking. Those are the results we expect to see from this e-Course,” says Tom j Dolan, President of Performance of Speaking.
Speaking & Presenting in English, the international lingua franca, is routinely expected at Global events. Speaker training must recognize the special needs of ESL(English as Second Language) Speakers. Performance of Speaking has incorporated Content and Language Integrated Learning(CLIL) into their Workshop program, providing ESL Students the dual benefits of learning the Skills of Speaking while using and improving their English skills.
Both the Workshop and the e-Course strongly encourage physical participation. When Workshop members focus their attention on a larger purpose, supported by their newly developing Speaking skills, the threat of embarrassment diminishes or disappears. Confidence builds quickly and members begin to advocate, not delegate, their comments, ideas, and solutions at public events.
Performance of Speaking was developed by multi-media professional Tom j Dolan as an educational vehicle to teach the fundamental skills of competent & confident Speaking. The success of it’s Workshops, the evolution of English as the Global lingua franca, and the Speaking demands of Globalization, encouraged Performance of Speaking to relocate from Los Angeles to Tokyo in 2011. A business hub and Gateway to Asia, Tokyo offers the growth and geographical reach for the international expansion envisioned by the Performance of Speaking.
