FAQs about the in-house

Public Speaking Course

Europe-wide

Can you briefly describe the profile of your rhetoric trainers?

Our rhetoric trainers are nationally and internationally excellent speakers. Our trainers have received awards in various national and international speech competitions: TOP speakers, World Cup quarter-finalists, German champions in debating, finalists in various competitions.

As experts in professional communication, your employees will benefit from our experience and will enormously increase their communicative and rhetorical skills through our 2-day public speaking course. For questions and further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@argumentorik.com.

How many people can attend an in-house public speaking course?

The fewer people participate in a public speaking course, the more possibilities the individual has to exercise.

We recommend a maximum of 12 active participants, with an unlimited number of employees who can be present as so-called “silent observers”.

Our rhetoric trainers deal with the rhetorical challenges of each individual in 4 detailed feedbacks per employee – after each speech!

Are the practical exercises tailored to our company needs?

Yes! The in-house public speaking course is explicitly geared towards the everyday practical requirements of your employees.

Every employee has the opportunity to complete 4 speech exercises in front of an audience over two days. In these speeches and debates integrated in the seminar plan, the aim is to put the rhetorical tools learned into practice immediately.

What is the relationship between theory and practice?

We have been observing for years that the greatest learning effect among employees lies in practical speech exercises.

And that they regularly regard our exercises as the “highlight” of the public speaking course. However, since it is your training, you can specify exactly the relationship between theory and practice.

That is why we attach great importance to practice. Further information on the content and exercises can be found in the seminar schedule .

Do participants also receive video feedback?

We offer to accompany the public speaking course with a camera. This method has proven to be very useful in the past and has been highly enlightened by employees, as the video allows for a more detailed analysis of the 4 speech exercises.

If you or individual employees do not want video analysis, of course we can do without.

Which seminar variant is the best for my team?

We recommend the “classical training” (BASIC) if you would like to book a basic seminar on rhetoric for your team in which fundamental concepts of the topic are discussed.

The “tailor-made training” (PRO) variant is recommended if you want to practice specific rhetoric topics with your team and the basic knowledge is already available.

And we recommend the third variant, “tailor-made training & online library” (PREMIUM), if you want to give your employees long-term access to valuable knowledge, with each participant having access to the Argumentorik Masterclas (over 30 online courses) so that each participant can develop independently.

You can combine the classic and tailor-made seminar into a 2-day event.

Please select now the variant that suits best for you.

Is it possible to conduct the training online (e.g. using Zoom or Microsoft Teams)?

Yes! We already have a lot of experience – and above all – very good experience when it comes to online trainings. Our preferred online tool is Zoom.

Of course we are flexible and use your preferred online tool successfully as well. Because in “digital rhetoric” it is not only a question of the technology, but also of a professional appearance in front of the camera.

Whether online trainings or face-to-face trainings: Write us your wishes and ideas in your non-binding request. We’ll find the best solution for you.

What is the unique selling point of the Argumentorik Academy?

In addition to our top rhetoric and argumentation trainers , we offer every participant topic-specific online courses for sustainable knowledge transfer, e.g. the online course “Rhetorik: Selbstbewusst kommunizieren und überzeugen” (in German).

The Argumentorik Online Academy portfolio already includes more than 30 online courses on communications, business skills and personality. Please select now the variant that suits best for you.
