Johan Kids Public Speaking Workshop

I had always wanted to send my Little Angels for Kids Public Speaking Workshop but I'm not sure which workshop is the best for my Little Angels. As mentioned in my previous post HERE, trained your little ones to be confidence so that they'll always be confidence in everything that they do.

Here I am with my 3 Little Angels at Johan Speaking Academy to explore how public speaking can help my Little Angels to be confidence in their life. This workshop was for 1.5 days and each session had a maximum of 12 students only to ensure quality, focus attention and the deliverable of the results.  

On the first day, all the children had a warm up session and each of them have to introduce themselves. Then they did a breathing exercise to release all the tensions since majority are first time been at the workshop. Their first lesson was on the body language.
My 3 Little Angels registered themselves before joining other kids to start of their 1.5 days workshop
There were activities and contest for the kids too. My Little Angels really enjoyed it even though very reluctant to attend it at first. At the end of the first day. they let me know what they had done there, the activities that they had joined and the contest. Talked non-stop on their experience and exposure. I can see that they had enjoyed it so much on their first day of training and were very eager to attend the workshop on the next day.

The workshop was lead by Teacher Johan Ooi who is a charismatic speaker and facilitator with a unique blend of style and experience. He loves to speak on stage and had won numerous International Speech Contest as a speaker Toastmasters. He teaches teens, kids and even adults on public speaking to help build their confidence and communication skills to propel their career at a faster pace. He is indeed a friendly guy who would like to pass on his skill to train the kids when they are small to help them out in their growing up period.

We woke up quite early on the next day as my Little Angels said it is an important day for them as now they'll speak in public. I was quite surprise. The first day workshop was only for 5.5 hours which include lunch time and 2 hours on the second day, how could they speak in public ? I doubt on their confidence level till I experienced it myself as all parents were invited to attend and to see ourselves on how our kids had performed after the workshop.

Kids and parents were the audience on that day

CW were no. 10 speaker on that day, She was a bit nervous waiting for her turn to comes and Mommy can see it. Mommy was more nervous than her as this is her first time speaking in public.
No eyes to see. Ha ha ha...
Trying hard to memorise the speech
But when she was at the stage, without seeing the script, she able to stand out to speak confidently in public. I was so proud of her hearing her speech. No more feeling of nervous. She could look at everyone without fear to introduce herself and what she love most. Her ambition and things that she like to do. She could talk confidently. Yeah to Pretty Wen for her courage to speak out.
CW express herself well in front of the audience

WH and WT also performed very well. Even though my 2 boys had to read from the script but at least they able to speak it out in front of the public audiences. Bravo to my little boys.
WH talk confidently 
He is just 6 years old and he can speak in public without fear
After each and every kids introduce themselves, the next session will be story telling. Some children have to read from the script and some really can memorised the whole story and tell it out to all the audiences.
This boy might be 6 years old but he can really told the story out with some emotions without the script
Superboy was the funniest boy amongst all
The confident that this boy shows really amaze me
The whole session was handle by 4 speakers especially trained by teacher Johan as he wanted the children to learned on how to handle the whole session. This training will gave the children a sense of empowerment.

The event finished at 1pm and all parents which include me were very satisfied with the results as Teacher Johan and Teacher Cherry had successfully build self confidence and self esteem at each child that mades them dare to stand out to speak out publicly without any fear. Their communication skills had improve tremendously and they're more confident in whatever things that they do now without any fear.
