What you will learn

It has been said that at a funeral most of us would prefer to be in the coffin rather than making the speech. If we are addressing a large public meeting or simply presenting to colleagues, why do we find it so daunting?

This course will provide a safe and supportive atmosphere where we can try to dispel some of our fears around presenting in public and learn how to be a confident speaker. Whether it’s a sales pitch or an internal reporting session, we will be looking at some useful tools to manage your talk and ways to overcome nervousness so you present your facts and message with clarity and confidence.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Overcome your nervousness when presenting in public
  • Present your facts and message with clarity and persuasion

Class format and activities

Topics covered in the class will include:
* Making an impact
* Constructing your presentation
* Powerpoint – friend or foe?

Constructive and supportive feedback from your tutor will help you succeed during the class.
