When you think of the tools that make a successful public speaker or presentation, what comes to mind? Perhaps hand gestures, body language, eye contact, and confidence come to mind. But what about breath? Or vocalization? Or stance? This class will guide you to become a better, more confident speaker. We will learn how to: manage our known and unknown nerves and tensions; craft and deliver a compelling presentation; improve known and unknown posture and body language; use breathing and relaxation techniques, and master the power of stance.
If you want to learn more about the class format, if you have questions about basic skills you might need to use, if you want to learn more about the specifics of the course, please contact Derrick Foust at firstname.lastname@example.org.
