Event description

Description

Public speaking is feared more than death. Why? We spend so much time preparing WHAT we are going to say that we fail to focus on the HOW.

While some people make wooing a crowd look easy, for a long time, public speaking was accepted to be hard, a skill possessed by and neccesary for only a select few professions. All that has quickly changed over the past dedace. 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, publically 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. We all need to be better communicators – on and off the stage why not start now?
