 Simple thinking to many can make you sleepy. Speaking in public is not exclusive to politicians and celebrities at press conferences. Do not confuse with reading, that many will get good grades there. It's about being able to present a project, say a few words at an event, make a proposal at the company to your colleagues or succeed in a job interview. Different situations in which you have to stay calm and move with dexterity. You can resort to an oratory course, but you have to practice a lot and it is not worth putting yourself to practice in front of parents, you have to do it in more risky situations. And above all realistic in which the recipient of the message does not stop looking at the smartphone, you get a fit of coughing, you are bored by what you are being told or you whisper with the person next to you.

This is possible thanks to the mix of virtual reality and artificial intelligence offered by Chiara, the Spanish startup that teaches to speak in public to executives of the Ibex, journalists and anyone who needs it for their day to day.

  "Existen dos brechas importantes a la hora de ayudar a los profesionales a comunicar, influir y convencer. La primera es que, en la formación tradicional, no pueden practicar tanto como les gustaría. La segunda, la imposibilidad de obtener un feedback totalmente objetivo", le dice a BBC Mundo Soraya del Portillo, fundadora de Chiara.

 “Esta psicóloga española especializada en recursos humanos ha creado una aplicación de realidad virtual llamada Chiara que funciona con inteligencia artificial. La idea es recrear aquello que nos da miedo”, reseña la web.

 "Superamos el miedo exponiéndonos a la situación que nos genera temor", dice la especialista. "Está demostrado que cuanto más te enfrentas a una situación, mayor es el control de las respuestas fisiológicas y cognitivas".

"Speaking in public is never easy, neither for a senior executive nor even for an information professional, since it requires a lot of training and preparation. In the world of acting, there is a saying that ensures that the best improvisation is the most prepared. To facilitate this learning was born in February of last year «Chiara», an online tool that allows us to polish the way we express ourselves publicly. All this, through virtual reality and specific glasses, that allow simulating real situations. In return the student will receive «objective and measurable feedback», in the words of the founder and CEO of «Chiara», Soraya del Portillo.

The CEO of «Chiara» has warned that she is already «preparing new features that will revolutionize the world of skills training» and, for this, they have submitted their candidacy for the European aid «Horizontes 2020». For now, Portillo is preparing to export its improved platform to five Latin American countries such as Peru, Colombia, Mexico and Ecuador.

With the passage of time, he realized the difficulty of measuring the improvement of his students beyond subjective assessments. "No coach or trainer has the objective capacity to measure how a student has made a presentation, my perception is always different from that of another trainer," he explains. Therefore, in 2015, he began working on a project to alleviate this problem, "the portal describes.

 

"His idea was to create a series of scenarios so that, through virtual reality, students could rehearse their presentations and understand their progress based on the visual and auditory information collected by their technology. After a year and a half of work, he managed to form a team of professionals that helped him build the platform he had in mind, 'CHIARA', a virtual reality platform ... ".
