Public Speaking Workshops

Public speaking is nowadays unavoidable and an imperative in most professions.
We believe that the quality of performing skill does not depend on the individual’s talent or luck, but it can be learnt, trained and improved.
We can all recognize common problems such as “stage fright”, poor audibility of the voice or lack of animation in presentations. Perhaps you are unhappy about the press conference where you did not communicate exactly what you planned to?
In the workshop the instructors encourage the participants to study and experience the principles of public speaking. Together, we will asses what is distracting your public communication and point out the quality parts in it. We will work on developing presence and charisma. We will introduce exercises which help to prepare and maintain self-control during your performance. Identifying emotions on stage is also the domain of the workshop. Recent findings in the field of emotional intelligence are applied in practice.
The training technique is based on the American acting technique “Method acting”, which is used by actors such as Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman and Merlyn Streep.
In Ljubljana there is a method acting school, Studio bratov Vajevec (, which was established more than thirty years ago. Its founder, actor and director Janez Vajevec, studied in the class of Lee Strasberg, founder of legendary Actor-s Studio, in New York and Los Angeles (
