Open Dawes Training is a public speaking, presentation and communication skills coaching company, with the key motivation of the company being to help people open doors that they may not even know exist yet, with increased confidence, willingness, and skills to present and speak in front of/with others. The podcast is taken from the live weekly "Opened Dawes" Live video show, where founder Chris Dawes dives into the key areas that make the difference with "public speaking", whether that is for those who are too nervous to do it or those who want to "up their game", whether that is for presentations, presence and participation in meetings, delivery of training, sales pitches, demonstrations, or even just communication with others in the best possible way. Chris Dawes: "My key ethos when I formed the business is that we are not, and should not be trying to create the mythical blueprint of the "perfect presenter", but unlocking each person's own personality, growing their confidence, helping them to be in control, organised, and of a quality that will make them become asked to do it more often, and no hesitation in their acceptance to do so. Apparently, public speaking is a soft skill, but it is a soft skill that gives your core skills a voice! Everyone owes it to themselves, and it is priceless to all of us that get to listen to them share their knowledge, experiences, passions, enthusiasm, and opinions. It gets them, their organisation, and their product/service recognised and appreciated, and helps us to grow and become more empowered from what they have to share."

    "Opened Dawes" Podcast Ep 12: Be a Messenger NOT a Messiah!

    "Opened Dawes" Podcast Ep 12: Be a Messenger NOT a Messiah!

    This is the podcast of  “Opened Dawes” Live, which runs weekly as a live video show on YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn at 11 am on Tuesday mornings so that we can throw open the doors and welcome you in for a relaxed sharing of information, tips, thoughts, and answering any questions about public speaking and presentation/communication skills you may have.

    So, make sure you set the reminders for the shows on Facebook or YouTube (links below) as they are scheduled online and get involved.  The stream is designed to be interactive, with comments/questions able to be shown and attributed on screen.

    This week’s show delves into the effect of changing our mentality from dictating our information/message to others, to sharing our knowledge, experiences, and skills for people to choose whether to absorb and grow from.
    We all grew from hearing others at some point in our lives (and still do), and we have probably all switched off when someone dictated their information and spoke AT us.  But not only does it influence how your audience receives your information, but also on how you feel about presenting it.  Relieve the pressure on yourself by just sharing your knowledge and information as an option for them and feel the difference when you realise that they are there to hear this, not to judge you! 
    Whilst the discussion will of course include listening and speaking (in a ratio many forget), the title two “sides” in this show are actually EMOTION and LOGIC.  Tune in to see why they are so important, what each of them achieves, and how you can make sure of their presence in your sales communications.
    This show can be watched live (and previous shows recorded) from the following locations:

    This week’s show looks at something that is not just a realisation and mindset for the start, but ongoing and something to remind ourselves constantly.  We look at how the feelings from adrenaline can either stop you in your tracks or be embraced and enable you to kick yourself on to heights you never thought possible!  That explosion inside that can make you punch the air and roar out loud!
    Whilst the discussion will of course include listening and speaking (in a ratio many forget), the title two “sides” in this show are actually EMOTION and LOGIC.  Tune in to see why they are so important, what each of them achieves, and how you can make sure of their presence in your sales communications.

    “Opened Dawes” Podcast – Ep 10: Public Speaking – A Skill Not Just for Presentations!

    “Opened Dawes” Podcast – Ep 10: Public Speaking – A Skill Not Just for Presentations!

    So, make sure you set the reminders for the shows on Facebook or YouTube (links below) as they are scheduled online and get involved.  The stream is designed to be interactive, with comments/questions able to be shown and attributed on screen.

    This week’s show looks at the myth that “public speaking” is only a skill for those that stand up and give presentations.  Much to our marketing experts’ disgust, we have found that not only is it a skill and developmental benefit that is industry, company size, and job role agnostic, but it applies to people for plenty of reasons others than presenting, and we will delve into those areas and how it has benefited people even more than they may have realised.

    This week’s show looks at what, from my experience in B2B sales, are two vital sides that need to come together in sales communications, whether that is presentations, demonstrations, pitches, or the initial or ongoing general communication.
    Whilst the discussion will of course include listening and speaking (in a ratio many forget), the title two “sides” in this show are actually EMOTION and LOGIC.  Tune in to see why they are so important, what each of them achieves, and how you can make sure of their presence in your sales communications.

    This week’s show looks at the fact the HOW you say something is at least as important as what you say. The tone we use can determine the feelings and integrity of what we have to share in presentations, training or media delivery and meetings.
