Public Speaking Training 2021 is an event initiated by Tarakanita Higher Education Foundation (Yayasan Pendidikan Tinggi Tarakanita-YPTT). YPTT is the foundation managing ESC Puspanita. This activity was facilitated by the Tarakanita School of Communication and Secretarial Studies (Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Komunikasi dan Sekretari Tarakanita, well-known as STARKI). The aim of training is for sisters and employees at ESC Puspanita Ciawi to be more confident to speak well in public. Moreover, this training is to prepare animators who can assist in delivering information and education to guests. The training was divided into 10 sessions; 9 the session was held in a meeting room in the Carlo Building (STARKI), East Jakarta, and the last session was held on June 10, 2021 at the ESC Puspanita Hall, Ciawi.
There were 4 participants for this public speaking training. They are Sister Edelberte CB (Head of ESC Puspanita Unit), Sister Merry Sitanggang CB (Head of General Affairs Division), Sister Ristina CB (Head of Service Division) and Dadang Sugendra (Head of Housekeeping Division).
The trainer was by F.A. Wisnu Wirawan, S.Pd., M.Si. He is currently the Head of Communication Studies for Sarjana Program at STARKI. All participants were enthusiastic and actively-involved into the training. The training is really effective because the participants can practice directly by applying the techniques in public speaking, such as on how to deliver an information for different audiences. Besides, at the end of each session, the trainer gave an appreciation and evaluation of the performance for each participant.
This training applies 3M’s health protocols; mask-wearing, hand-washing and social-distancing.
