Every year we hear of top performing university graduates who are not able to find jobs.
They score multiples As and are bright students.
Yet they dread going for job interviews because they are afraid to speak with new contacts.
Today’s graduates face this problem
Because they don’t have the confidence to speak out. They can’t address questions that come their way. And if the are hired, many fear meeting new prospects or giving presentations.
They rather hide away at their desk doing back-end support work or research.
This has become a common phenomenon. Young executives and even middle management fear public speaking or giving presentations.
But this is one skill that is crucial for going up the corporate ladder.
Why is public speaking and presentation skills not taught in schools?
While we have language classes, there has not been enough emphasis on reading aloud or on presentation and public speaking.
More often than not, students mumbled through the text and hurried along so they can quickly get over the reading.
What if they can do public speaking and recite fluently?
At Scholar Base, we have little children as young as 5 or 6, reciting in public.
They are not only able to memorize the verses, they look forward to speaking in front of a public audience. In fact, most of them get to act on stage and memorize prose and poems that they enjoy
A building of practical skills
Needless to say, this builds their self confidence and they grow up to be eloquent and confident speakers ready to face the challenges of the world.
