How is this different from
other communications courses?

This course introduces practical communication tips from a Buddhist lens.

  1. How can we leverage effective communication skills to achieve both material success but also spiritual success?
  2. How can we communicate not just for our personal gains but also for the benefit of others?

 

In the world of charismatic leaders who manipulates and deceives, we need more individuals who are both skilled in communications and conduct to rise above.

You can be that individual. 

 

In this course, we will also learn from one of the most influential speakers in history: the Buddha. 

  1. How were people regardless of age, social status, gender, able to resonate with the teachings?
  2. How did his teachings become so contagious and widespread in an era with no powerpoint and internet?
  3. How did he explain complex concepts to different people and have them understand.

Questions

Will there be materials provided?

Yes. You will receive a digital worksheet that contain notes and exercise pages. 

Why are we charging for this course?

In short: to attention financial sustainability in order to scale our operations and benefit more people.

Currently, our team is running the entire operations on top of our demanding day job. We’re also forking out money from our own pockets to keep the site running. While we have some kind sponsors who fund our efforts on a monthly basis, it’s not enough for us to hire any full-timers yet. 

In 2023, we will be experimenting different ways to generate some revenue through value-creation products/services. This course is one of them (though highly not related to the types of content we publish. Hey, but we start somewhere!).

We hope doing this will allow us to keep our content (articles, podcast, and videos) free so that more people can access the practical Buddhist wisdom for a happier life. 

Who is this course best for?

This course is best suited anyone who would like to learn how to prepare a speech/presentation and effectively deliver a message to an audience. 

You can be a student, a working professional or a teacher.

We will be contextualising our course materials and tailor them according to the profile and needs of the attendees (based on the pre-workshop survey via the booking link).

If you’re unsure if this is for you, you may contact [email protected].

Do I need to bring my laptop?

As digital worksheets will be provided (to save paper), you are encouraged to bring along a tablet or a computer.

If you prepare pen and paper, you are encouraged to print the worksheet and bring it along. We will be sending it out about a week before the course. 

Do I need powerpoint software?

No, you don’t. This course focuses mainly on crafting a clear and compelling message that can be delivered without any tangible visuals. 

You will be using post-it notes and markers to pen/structure your thoughts.
