【学LEARN】Business Culture Class (BCC) 03 "Public speaking"

 

On April 11th, 2015, we had our "Business Culture Class (BCC)" with the topic “Public speaking”.
17 participants got together and enjoyed playing a coin game for breaking a little ice and did a heated discussion for 2 hours! The difference of public speaking between English and Japanese after watching videos President Obama and Prime Minister Abe speech on the economy as follows;

 

*** Japanese vs. English ***

・ Professional vs. Friendly

・ Scripted vs. Using own words

・ Gestures vs. Stoic

・ Conceptual vs. Contextual and so on

 



S
ome attendees pointed out that those differences above are mostly influenced by c
ulture, audience and purpose of public speaking and so on. In group exercise, we practiced public speech to promote odd/funny objects (e.g. baby mop, wine glass holder necklace, bear sleeping bag etc) in groups. One person from each group gave public speech in front of us! All groups prepared a great story of object and performed very well. Great jobs!

 

We would appreciate to all participants who attended our class and to Kevin with great facilitation and all preparations for us! We hope all of you had a fruitful afternoon!

 

We are looking forward to seeing you at next BCC class on Saturday May 16th!
