About This Class
In some ways, presenting to a single person is much more difficult than to a group. Theoretically, you have this person's undivided attention.
Imagine that every time you give a one on one presentation, the other person comes away with a strong and positive sense of what you are about, what your message is, and why they should help you. Wouldn't it be great to know that every time you meet someone for a one on one presentation, you are coming across your very best?
In this course, you will learn the following:
- How to avoid the common blunders that hurt most people in one on one presentations
- How to focus on your key messages for the presentation
- How to make the other person feel comfortable with you
- How to rehearse your presentation on video
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.
How long this course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life.
You can begin improving your presentation skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your presentation skills are not up to high standards. Enroll in this course today.
