Good public speaking is more than simply good delivery. If good delivery were all that is required, more people would be better at public speaking. In order to be good at speaking you have to understand how oral communication works and how to design presentations that actually can be delivered well. For this reason, we will start the course by looking at all the opportunities and challenges you face when you speak in front of an audience.
Next, we look at set of speech skills and speech models that can help you organize your thoughts to enable you to present and articulate them clearly and concisely. We move on to various presentation techniques such as PowerPoint, white boards, and flip charts. To finish the class, we will discuss what you need to do before, during, and after the presentation.
