About This Class

Imagine that every time you speak, people can understand your message, remember your key points and have a good feeling about you. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can present authoritatively on any subject that is important to you or has been assigned to you?

When you have completed this project, you will be able to:

  • Make sure your audience is actually understanding and remembering your key messages
  • Avoid the most common blunders in other informational speeches
  • Get your audience to care about your information
  • Deliver information in an engaging an interesting manner

This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.

The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
