« back to classes page
Speaking effectively in business, educational, organizational or social settings involves communicating with clarity, purpose and confidence. This interactive course will help you become confident and engage your audience and, if you’re like many people and dread public speaking, you’ll learn techniques to help reduce anxiety or fear. We’ll review communication elements, examine speech formats including short talks, "elevator" and impromptu speeches, long and short form presentations and discover how to handle various audiences, locations, audio/visual aids and props, limitations and surprises. The class includes exercises, writing/formatting,  practice presentations and opportunities for you to learn what methods work for you. Techniques to build confidence in planning, preparing and preparing speeches will be studied and you will learn the process of how to take a speech concept from start to finish. The class is designed to be experiential and supportive. Materials and resources will be provided in class.
