|Speech and Script Writing|
Gauteng: PRISA Randburg
Behind every great performance is an even better script. The key ingredient to a successful speech lies in the skilled hand of a good writer as well as in the sweet tongue of the speaker. By providing a safe and negotiable path through the rough terrain of radio and television, a good script is essential to help speakers and communication professionals. Effective scripts and speeches do not happen by accident though. They are planned, meticulously structured and coherent. Developing these skills is the duty of any respectable public relations professional and thanks to this workshop, easier than you think.
This workshop will provide a theoretical grounding on speech and script writing. It will also give tips on how to incorporate different techniques for different target audiences. This vibrant workshop will explain the use of story-telling and anecdotes in creating engaging scripts for various purposes. For example, corporate videos and radio adverts. Join your fellow professionals and become adept at the art of writing good scripts and memorable speeches at this intensive one day workshop.
