Event description
Transform your public speaking and presentation skills in this intensive, long-term, activity-based course

About this Event

Take this course to enhance your public speaking and presentation skills through sustained, focused practice in a structured setting.

Training for all Skill Levels

Whether you are a total beginner trying to get a handle on stage fright, or an experienced presenter who is looking to reach the next level in your charisma and impact, this course is for you!

Long-Term Transformation

Most presentation trainings last a few hours or two days. That's not enough time to move the needle and produce real results.

This course will last 6 weeks, enabling participants to get repeated practice, feedback and support over time.

As new challenges come up and your skills evolve, you will receive expert guidance and support from a trainer who has coached hundreds of professionals and business owners on their speaking and presentation skills.

Sustained Growth

The goal of the program is to facilitate a transformation in each participant's speaking and presentation skillset.

We will achieve that transformation through numerous structured activities and exercises, including solo presentation practice, timed mini-speeches, message creation, voice exercises, body language exercises and more.

The course content will be adjusted for the needs and goals of each participant.

Course Elements

  • Live sessions in person for instruction, practice and feedback
  • Video recordings of your speaking
  • Assignments for continuous growth and improvement
  • Weekly remote office hours over Google Hangouts/ Zoom

Sessions will feature only minimal lecturing and reading material. The emphasis will be on practice, feedback and action.

In addition to the sessions, you will receive assignments and tips to practice in between sessions.

Assignments may include voice exercises to be completed at home, body language tips that can be practiced in the workplace day-to-day, storytelling techniques that can be used in social or work settings, mindset exercises to overcome stage fright, or slide deck design assignments.

Some of your practice exercises and presentations will be recorded on video for your review after the session.

Once per week during the program we will also host a remote office hours session over Google Hangouts or Zoom, so you can get answers to all of your questions and receive support as you work on your weekly assignments.

  • How to structure a speech or presentation
