THEME: “BECOMING AN ARTICULATE AND CHARISMATIC POLITICIAN”
WHY POLITICIANS MUST ATTEND
Lack of Political Public Speaking and Persuasive Communication Skills accounts for why most of our politicians do not concentrate on articulation of their manifestoes to persuade the electorate during political campaigns but rather focus on attacking other contestants. There is need to break the barrier of primitive persuasion and embrace application of effective political public speaking skills if you must succeed as a politician. Persuasion is simply about convincing people.
It is noteworthy that there are three things you need to sell yourself in life and reach the peak of success. These are: Competence, Likeability and Luck. While competence and likeability will almost always deliver “luck” to you, one potent instrument that is very critical to your being able to advertise your competence and become likeable and “lucky” is excellent public speaking and persuasion capability. This is why an average but articulate and confident candidate often outshines brilliant but inarticulate candidates at an oral job interview.
As a politician, you too can outshine more brilliant but less articulate co-contestants if you are trained in the art of effective political public speaking and persuasion. You need the skills of effective public speaking and persuasive communication to succeed because you must be able to convince the electorate and even win opposition over during electoral campaigns so that people can vote for you.
Invitation: You are therefore invited to our “POLITICAL PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS COURSE” at GOKMAR COMMUNICATION CONSULTING.
