EuroCham Myanmar is supporting the partnership between the German Myanmar Business Chamber (GMBC) and  Deutsche Welle Akademie to propose a unique opportunity to learn how to master public communications situations.

People often find public appearances, official statements or TV or radio interviews to be fairly stressful, and few see themselves as natural talents. 

If you're speaking in front of a packed room, your job is to get everyone's attention without being frozen by stage fright. You often have just a few seconds to make your point, and DW Akademie trainers coach you in presenting your message briefly and effectively. 

You'll learn how to give on-the-spot answers, get your point across in group discussions and use facial expressions, gestures and body language to your advantage to convey your message clearly and confidently.

The workshop includes realistic exercises in front of the camera and at the microphone as well as expert feedback from media professionals with years of international experience.

The training sessions are hands-on, with experienced journalists and media professionals coaching you how to prepare for situations that meet your specific needs.
