Public speaking is feared more than death. We spend so much time preparing WHAT we are going to say that we fail to focus on the HOW. What does it take to make wooing a crowd look easy?
Public speaking used to be accepted as a difficult skill possessed by and necessary for only a select few professions. All that has quickly changed over the past decade. TED Talks, once an exclusive closed room conference has become mainstream and watched by millions. Today, whatever your profession, the ability to stand in front of an audience and express your ideas and accomplishments, publicly and effectively, is not just admired but is expected.
In this class, you’ll learn presentation skills essential to being a more interesting and present speaker. We’ll practice activities and learn warm-ups that will not only build confidence but also address that fear of public speaking. Students also have the option (not required!) to bring a 2 minute presentation they are working on to workshop in class. We all need to be better communicators – on and off the stage – why not start now?
