Sweating. Dizziness. Nausea. Horror. It is estimated that 75 percent of all people suffer from this anxiety. The official term is Glossophobia. The fear of public speaking. This eight-week course will give you the tools to master the art of oration and set you on the road to leadership and friendship.

Through practical exercises, you will advance and perfect your communication skills and become a self-assured and engaging presenter, persuasive public speaker and powerful debater. You will also create a unique personal brand and find your voice.

You will explore the use of body language and eye contact while eliminating nervous habits. You'll advance your vocal skills including breathing, articulation, tone, pace, stress and more. You will study the structure and the use of power words and you’ll be introduced to the 4C’s of public speaking and the ACE Key. And finally, you will develop an understanding of the different types of speeches and when to use them.

By the end, you will become a dynamic speaker. You’ll have the ability to conquer nerves and to connect with your audience. You will communicate your message effectively by using your research and analytical skills. You’ll understand when to employ escalating speech structure, beginning with a dynamic opening and continuing to a vibrant closing, to appreciate the use of hooks, through-lines, facts and figures, and anecdotes.
