About This Class
Imagine yourself speaking confidently and authoritatively to hundred or even thousands of people in the audience. Wouldn't t be great to know you can speak to 1000 people just as easily and as confidently as when you speak to one person?
In this course, you will learn the be able to:
- Appear relaxed and confident, even if you shaking on the inside
- Avoid the common mistakes most people make when they are speaking to a large audience
- Move around the stage effectively
- Be clearly understood and remembered
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 group 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.
