Daniel Saluni attended Infinite Growth's Presenting with Confidence program and provided the following feedback on his experiences.
1. Why did you enrol in this program?
I decided to enrol in this program to improve my confidence in speaking in public without the fear of feeling nervous, lost for words, being fidgety and unable to stand straight and tall.
For most of my life I have been terrified to speak in public about anything. I am usually lost for words, nervous and my body language has reflected this in my presentations. The fear of speaking in front of groups and not feeling confident about has been an embarrassing and terrifying experience.
2. What have you gained from the program?
I have gained confidence in my own personal presentation. I am able to structure my subject with an introduction, body and conclusion. I feel I have positive energy and passion when I am speaking.
My body language is more focused on being able to stand straight and tall. I can speak clearly at a moderate pace, use hand gestures when required and my tone of voice effectively. I can select words to capture the audience's attention and consider how my presentation can impact their thought processes.
3. How will you use what you've learnt in this program?
I can use the areas that we've covered in the program in my profession as well as for my future career aspirations. I currently present in Security / Building Management and I have an interest in real estate.
To be able to address clients and the public in general is new to me. I now feel I can present with confidence, energy and a sparking powerful presence. I feel good within myself when I am presenting any subject in public. I've found that the more you practise the more natural and enjoyable it becomes.
4. If you were to refer this program to others, what would you say?
I would highly recommend this program to any person who lacks the confidence to speak in public. It's amazing to see the difference from when you start this program and where you are when you complete it. What a difference it has made for me!
I know this is just the tip of the iceberg but it has certainly made an impact in my personal confidence and character.
I would continue with any future advanced programs that are offered as I know I still have more to learn, which will only benefit me in my personal wellbeing.
The trainer, Maria Pantalone, was exceptional. Her weekly points were clearly explained. She made me personally feel good about myself and brought out the best in me with areas that I can work on in my presentations. It has been an enjoyable experience.
