Information about Rhetoric

Rhetoric is an antique term and means oratory. It refers to the ability to speak informatively, understandably and convincingly in front of a crowd and / or give a lecture. One's own points of view in discussions or in a speech should be presented through distinctive rhetorical skills and create a connection with the audience.

Rhetoric plays an important role in numerous professions. Especially where many speeches are given, it is important to know certain rhetorical skills. However, these do not always have to be official speeches in front of an audience. Knowledge that you learn in our rhetoric seminars will also help you to ensure that your presentations, meetings and discussions go well and that you can use your voice confidently and pleasantly for the listener. However, they also help to improve personal relationships and contacts.

Good rhetoric is reflected in the appropriate gestures and posture as well as articulation of the speaker. An adequate speech pace as well as sound of the voice and the effective use of pauses is also an important part of well conducted presentations. In our rhetoric training courses you will learn how to argue convincingly as a speaker and how not to be irritated by questions from your audience.

Rhetoric is especially successful when you appear credible and confident in conversations and presentations. In our courses for rhetoric, the participants therefore learn to represent their own point of view and to react appropriately in different situations according to their own values.
