Prepare with Care
Evaluate your Context
Before we jump into the four essential qualities of the Integral Public Speaking Approach, it is of highest importance to evaluate the context. What is the occasion and the format? What are giving factors about time and location? Who is the audience and of course and most importantly: What is your purpose?
Elaborate your purpose
Great and successful speakers are highly aware of the purpose of their talk. To evoke the intended reaction of their listeners, the structure, the examples and language are chosen accordingly. What do you want to reach? Do you want to inform? Do you want to provoke or unite? Do you want to challenge, question or transform their beliefs? Learn how to elaborate goals and purposes carefully and you will immediately feel the impact on yourself and your performance.
Practice, Practice, Practice
The best way to learn speaking confidently and convincingly infront of others is to practice. Learn how to practice in a smart and efficient way. The rule is very simple: The more you practice, the easier it is. Start und enjoy your journey.
Convince with your content
Elaborate first IPSA quality
Organize your argument
The smartest ideas, the most inspiring research results, the best provoking thoughts or the newest insights often get lost in space. They get lost in space due to an overdetailed, unclear or confusing argumentation. This is a shame! Learn how to structure the information you want to give intelligently and connect the dots smartly. Insights in structuring and rhetorics will enable you to give your content the attention it deserves.
Present your content convincingly
Once you have prepared what you want to say, its important to focus on how to say it. Learn how to make facts and data exciting. Learn how to choose perfect images and examples for your purpose and really make a point that people will remember. Find your style.
The Secret Super Power: Telling stories
People have connected through stories throughout all times and cultures. Passing on ideas and knowledge through tales can be seen as a secret super power. This is how we remember things. Good stories do not depend on their topic. If you know how, you can make anything exciting. Study the building blocks of a good story. What are common traps that need to be avoided under all circumstances? Learn how to spice up your presentation with a persuading story and build up your personal super power.
Communication without hesitation
Sleepless nights, short breath, sweat, panic or nervousness are in your way of speaking with confidence? Don´t worry. You are not alone. Speaking publicly is one of the most common fears among adults in the western world – secretly hidden by most. There are very effective ways of working on them. In this coaching your fears will be taken seriously. You will learn positive coping strategies and methods that will allow you not only to survive but to even enjoy your moment.
Becoming aware of your own triggers, strengths, coping strategies, character traits, values and needs, allows you to be best prepared for any kind of audience – benevolent or critical. Learn how to consciously interact with your listeners instead of reflexively reacting. You will notice how you will relax and grow.
Being confident on the inside is strongly noticeable on the outside. Inner growth is literally visible. You will be able to focus on your audience confidently and speak convincingly and with ease. Experiencing how inner strength can influence your performance to the best is a great speaking experience and leads to truly lasting change.

Voices take people on journeys they will remember. Using your voice with consciousness is a great way to create different reactions within your audience.
