Presenting yourself, materials, and ideas is a daily activity of a communications practitioner. This course will improve your ability to speak effectively in various situations, including speaking impromptu, presenting an idea, explaining extremely difficult subject matter, and persuading people on a volatile issue. More specifically, you will build on and improve the subtleties of delivery, structure, and visual aids.
Class exercises focus on audience analysis, strategic presenting, theme development, argument construction, techniques for creating “stickiness,” and effective openings and closings.
