This is a technical exercise to help avoiding speaker’s block while presenting. The aim is to follow a systematic approach in practicing over and over again until delegates are confident enough that they can deliver a speech without getting stuck. This a great exercise in handling stage fright.
Deliver a speech continuously for a given time nonstop without worrying too much about various aspects of the speech.
Explaining the Exercise: 5 minutes
Activity: 5 min decide on topic + (10 min delivery + 5 min feedback) * 8 = 125 minutes for 8 delegates
Group Feedback: 10 minutes
How well did you present? Did you get stuck? Who performed best? What can you learn from the best presenter? What tricks helped you with this task?
It might be better if delegates have practiced this on their own before presenting to others. You can assign them the task before the course so they can spend time choosing the right topic and then presenting it in front of a mirror. They can then go over it several times until they have mastered it. During the course, they can practice delivering it to others and see if they can perform as well with the pressure of an audience
If you did, then please help others benefit from this too:
