What they do...
Open Dawes Training, founded by Chris Dawes, has been setup to help anyone who may have to communicate with others; in professional, educational, group, sports or social situations.
Chris is a businessman turned sports commentator, and is regularly heard commentating at motor racing circuits around Europe. He has also gone on to present on the television and radio, and hosts awards nights and events. He is passionate about helping others become confident public speakers and has designed a series of public speaking & presentation training courses to help people portray the best image of themselves.
Chris said: “This is a project of passion, having gone through the nerves of giving presentations at university and then in business, and training our Resellers’ sales forces to give business presentations. I found a way to do it, that enabled me to focus on the content of my delivery, the quality and bringing my personality out.
I really believe that anybody has the ability to do this and I want to empower others to not only master it, but enjoy the opportunity. By letting your voice be heard, it’s unbelievable what doors it can open; as I have shown. Speaking up with/in front of people enables you to Inform, Motivate, and win over/persuade people, which means it is relevant in every walk of life or professional position.
I now get paid to commentate on my favourite sport, present on TV and radio, and host awards nights etc. It’s just a fabulous experience and all because I learnt to speak in public and not let those nerves get the better of me.”
If you have the ability to speak confidently in front of others, with conviction and passion, can master storytelling authoritatively and engagingly, and get your message over in a compelling way, the benefits both personally and professionally are significant! It can give you an advantage that others may lack, even if their message may have been better had it been presented as well as you will be able to.
How we're working together...
Student Motorsport and Open Dawes Training have come together to bring public speaking, presenting, communications, and media training to our affiliates, guests and students, graduates and aspiring automotive and motorsport engineers of the future. We like Chris believe strongly that mastering or fine tuning public speaking or presenting can give you an advantage that others may lack, even if their knowledge or message may have been better had it been presented as well as you will be able to. With that in mind we're focused on improving the well being and mindset of people studying and working in this exciting and fast paced industry.
"I am thrilled to be personally supported by such a professional organisation and motorsport enthusiast. It was fantastic to finally meet Chris Dawes at Autosport International in January 2017 and I look forward to supporting our members through his professional services and advice." JP the Founder of Student Motorsport
Training courses and workshops are being developed and will be available to groups or individuals in education and in the wider motorsport, automotive and engineering industries. We're reaching out to schools, colleges, UTC's, universities, individuals and organisations to further enhance communication and presenting skills, and managing the nerves typically associated with standing up in front of, or speaking with others; whether that is 1 or 1,000 people.
