Description

You may have vast knowledge and experience in your field but if you lack good communication skills, you will most likely fail to spread your message and influence people. During a presentation, there are a few approaches you can employ to help you get through a speech with ease and confidence. You will learn how to effectively use a ‘cheat sheet’ in a speech to appear confident and authoritative and why avoiding too much data and message points in order to not lose the attention of your audience. Fewer message points allows an audience to more easily understand, remember and act upon your presentation and there are many techniques that you will learn in this course that will help narrow down and focus your message. PowerPoint is a widely used medium to help deliver speeches and presentations and you will also be taught how to avoid common mistakes in PowerPoint and put only the relevant data on your slides.

Since fear is a natural emotion, many people suffer from anxiety when facing an audience. Good communicators know how to keep their fears in check during a speech or presentation and these methods and tips are discussed; one in particular is by focusing exclusively on your audience. Some other myths around overcoming the fear of public speaking are addressed and debunked and there is a specific focus on the role confidence plays in speech delivery and eliminating anxiety. Practice is the next important theme (specifically practicing on video for the purposes of feedback), and this is critical to not only a successful presentation but it goes a long way in removing errors and refining your presentation. Often, the biggest difference between great communicators and bad ones, is the use of stories and storytelling for the purposes of emphasis. The course discusses the process of adding real, relevant stories to complement your main message to make it more understandable and memorable.
