Class Description


What you'll learn in this public speaking class:

Conquer your fear of public speaking and become a master communicator with this public speaking workshop. Learn the skills you'll need to communicate better and start practicing them in the classroom.

Overcome your fear of public speaking and enhance your communication skills through our comprehensive workshop. In this interactive class, you'll learn practical techniques to communicate more effectively, starting with hands-on exercises in a workshop setting.

Public speaking extends beyond formal presentations; it includes leading meetings, impromptu speaking to a group, and convincing clients through persuasive negotiation. Additionally, there are presentations to superiors and various other scenarios to navigate.

This workshop guides you in tailoring your presentations to diverse audiences and individuals within those audiences and teaches you the art of creating a compelling outline and seamlessly translating it into a PowerPoint presentation within seconds.

The class will explore maximizing the use of the physical space, setup, and your personal attributes such as voice and gestures. A significant amount of class time is dedicated to live presentation practice, where you'll be encouraged to deliver a concise presentation (under 5 minutes). If you choose to bring a PowerPoint presentation or handouts, the instructor will provide valuable coaching on their effective use. Expect personalized guidance from an experienced presenter, aimed at boosting your comfort and effectiveness in public speaking.
