Course overview

As the Jerry Seinfeld joke goes “More people fear public speaking than death. That means at a funeral more people would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy”

Delivering a presentation is an anxiety producing experience for almost everyone. However, as public speakers we all bring aspects of ourselves that will be engaging to an audience. Improving your presentation delivery takes practice and self awareness. In this course, we will discuss key challenges to public speaking and provide practical exercises to overcome these obstacles.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understanding who you are as a public speaker and how you engage an audience
  2. Identifying challenges to public speaking including eye contact, voice and movement
  3. Applying action steps to overcoming common challenges to public speaking

0.5 hrs of verifiable CPD (Certificate will be provided upon course completion)
