Public speaking has always ranked high on a list of the things people fear most. It is so common it even has its own name, glossophobia or the fear of public speaking, and some experts estimate that as much as 75% of the population has some level of anxiety regarding public speaking. Of course, many people are able to manage and control the fear. If your fear is significant enough to cause problems in work, school, or social settings, then it is possible that you suffer from this full blown phobia.
It's only natural to fear the unknown, so how do you overcome that fear...by making the unknown, known. This class is designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to deliver exceptional presentations. With this class and some practice, fear of speaking in public will become a thing of the past.
Even if you don't need to make regular presentations in front of a group, there are plenty of situations where good public speaking/presentation skills can help you advance your career and create opportunities. The objective of this course is to help students design and deliver presentations that are concise, clear, and convincing. Please note: if your reason for taking a class is to improve your training skills, our Train the Trainer class would be more suitable.
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.
