【Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award 2018-19 】Workshop on Presentation and Communication Skills
It was our honour to invite Ms Judy Kwan, Winner of the 6th Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award and the General Manager of the Communications and Public Affairs of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, to be the star mentor of the 12 finalists and share the techniques of focusing on the key message in public speaking and communication. Judy was satisfied with their public speaking skills, within one to two minutes training of self-introduction, they already learnt how to use story to make the speech more influencing, persuasive and convincing, leaving a deep impression to the audience. She was also glad to have a chance to meet and communicate with the finalists this year. Finalists indicated that role playing exercise was the most impressed tasks. During the training, they took turns to be the spokesman of an organiser in a challenging situation, and had to answer challenging questions from students, parents and reporters. After the exercise, they realized the importance of preparation work, such as understanding the views and opinions from different stakeholders, which allowed them to be more confident during enquiry response. We are grateful to Judy for attending the workshop and delivering a wonderful, practical and interactive lesson to our finalists. We look forward to the sharing by the finalists in the coming future.
