In our rhetoric course, your employees learn the most important aspects of rhetoric: correct body language, professional voice leading, confident appearance in front of an audience, convincing argumentation, effective presentation techniques and much more. This course is always a 2-day seminar and practice-oriented: each of your employees has the opportunity to give four speeches in front of an audience and receives individual feedback from the rhetoric trainer. The 2-day rhetoric course has the advantage that on the second day, employees can successfully integrate the feedback of the previous day into their speeches and visibly increase their learning progress. Put the rhetorical education of your employees in professional hands!
Your trainer is an experienced and internationally distingueshed speaker who knows exactly how to captivate the audience. Your employees learn rhetoric from professionals who are among the best in the world in public speaking competitions. So you are able to take a look directly from the trainer on how to do it rhetorically and skillfully correctly. Additionally each employee gets access to our online communication training after the course in which they can independently consolidate the content so that a sustainable transfer of knowledge is guaranteed.

How many people can participate in a rhetoric course?
We recommend a maximum number of 12 employees, with an unlimited number of people who like to be present as so-called "silent observer". Our goal is to increase each employee's communicative skills on two consecutive days. Our rhetoric trainer gives in-depth feedback on each person's rhetorical challenges after each exercise. A training with only 3-6 participants is obviously much more intense. By the way, at the end of the successful training everybody receives a certificate of attendance.
Are there practical exercises included in a rhetoric course?
Yes! Our rhetoric course is explicitly tailored to the everyday practical requirements of your employees. Each employee has the opportunity to complete 4 practical exercises in front of an audience on two days and put into practice what they have learned immediately. These speeches and debates are integrated in the schedule of the seminar and are about putting the learned rhetorical tools immediately into practice. If you would like to book a tailored in-house training, then please take a look at our portfolio of in-house trainings.
What is the relationship between theory and practice?
We have been observing for years that the greatest learning effect of our clients lies in practical exercises. And that they regularly regard our exercises as the "highlight" of the seminar. That's why we put a lot of emphasis on practice and pay attention to a distribution of 20% theory and 80% practice. For more information, please take a look at the schedule.
Do participants also receive video feedback?
We offer to accompany the rhetoric course with a camera. This method has proven to be very useful in the past and has been highly enlightened by our clients, as the video allows for a more detailed analysis of the 4 simulations. If you or individual participants do not want the video analysis, of course we can do without.
Is there a rhetoric course as an individual coaching available?
In addition to our group seminars, we also offer individual coachings, on request also at your location or via Skype. You are welcome to contact us with your questions and concerns by phone on +49 89/13 94 36 38 or by email at email@example.com. We look forward to you!
