About This Class

50f6bcd7

Imagine that you can speak with confidence and authority, no matter what disasters might be happening as you speak. Wouldn't it be nice to know that if you forget what to say or if a slide doesn't

work properly, you can still speak in a confident and relaxed manner, and your audience will never know there was a problem?

In this course, you will learn the following:

  • Recover if you forget what to say
  • Project calm on the outside even if you are panicking on the inside
  • What not to say when mistakes or disasters occur
  • Avoid the most common mistakes that derail speakers

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.
