100576 - The Art of Public Speaking and Presentation Skills
It's the night before a presentation at work or a job interview. You are feeling anxious, you have butterflies in your stomach an you're worried your performance will suffer because of it. What would you do if you had techniques in your back pocket that could help calm your nerves, engage your audience and communicate a clear message? If you were a little less on edge before having to speak in public, what could you accomplish?
Professional actors are some of the best individuals in the world at grabbing and holding an audience. Our instructor, Greg Justice, is both a professor and an actor. In this Public Speaking & Presentation Skills workshop, he will equip you with the tools used by actors to:
-Reign in stage fright
-Gain the attention of an audience
-Keep their audience focused on what is said
-Make their words memorable
There's no need to worry about being put on the spot in this public speaking course, either; you can expect to be participatory, but you will never be put on the spot.
Who should attend?
Anyone who speaks in front of an audience in any situation and wants to learn how to do it with confidence and leave a lasting impression.
