Hi. I'm Laura Bergells, and this is Effective Public Speaking. At some point in your life, it's likely that you're going to be asked to deliver a speech or a presentation. Too many courses begin by focusing on the fear of public speaking; however, I'd rather focus on how terrific you're going to be when you develop more confidence by using powerful techniques. If you're a savvy presenter, you can use the insights from this course as a helpful reminder.
And if you're a novice speaker, you'll find techniques that can help you polish any presentation. We'll discuss how to prepare. Both technically and emotionally. We'll explore how to warm up, and open your presentation. I'll show you delivery techniques. Including how to use visual aids and props. We'll also talk about how to handle Q and A and deliver a strong closing to your presentation. Join me to discover how to develop the confidence and techniques you need to become an effective public speaker.
