Public speaking is a cornerstone of success in business, school, and public life. In this course, you’ll learn how to organize your talks, write them memorably, and deliver them confidently. You’ll also learn to reduce your fear of public speaking, use rehearsal techniques to develop a robust and vibrant voice, and perform speeches with dynamic movement and gestures. The speech model we’ll practice is useful for briefings, elevator talks, interviews, and even as a structure for hour-long presentations. Public speaking skills are essential for beginners, but seasoned speakers can also use them to understand the craft better.
