What you'll learn in this public speaking class:

Figure out how to be your best when the pressure’s on. The ability to connect with others in an authentic way is the key to being a great speaker – and it carries over into the success of your business and personal life.

This hands-on workshop gives each student the chance to articulate their specific public speaking goals and give a 1 – 2 minute pitch/speech. You’ll receive expert feedback in a supportive environment and leave this workshop with the physical experience of being in front of a group.


  • What it means to be an effective story-teller and how to do it
  • Develop inflection and understand tone + rate, and its impact on an audience
  • Understand your specific quirks, strengths, and areas of opportunity
  • Build confidence through experiential learning and actual practice in front of a group
  • Less stress, less anxiety, more presence, and more fun while speaking!

It was a nice balance between information and practical use of the skills discussed. Being able to not only get up there yourself and utilize the skills but also watching and learning from your peers was really beneficial.
