ELA Formation


Public speaking




> Maximize your impact when you speak in public in English.

> Be prepared to give a show as an actor would.

> Get the message across and hold their interest.

> Structure your speech to be clear, synthetic and impactful.


This training is designed to have you fully participate and be active. By using drama and drama improvisation techniques you feel and experience public speaking as a unique moment shared with a group to dramatically increase your skills.

Each exercise is chosen so that you can link what you live over the training to your professional life.




After a group or individual exercise is experienced, the participant, then the group and finally the trainer give their feedback. Each participant is invited to find out and share how this will impact their professional skills.

The video camera is used at least once and the video debriefed.
