Public speaking is feared more than death. We spend so much time preparing WHAT we are going to say that we fail to focus on the HOW. What does it take to make wooing a crowd look easy? And even if you don’t fear public speaking – are you good at it, or have you had an audience look through you?
Public speaking used to be accepted as a difficult skill possessed by and necessary for only a select few professions. All that has quickly changed over the past decade. TED Talks, once an exclusive closed room conference has become mainstream and watched by millions. Today, whatever your profession, the ability to stand in front of an audience and express your ideas and accomplishments, is not just admired but expected.
In this class, you’ll learn basic presentation skills essential to being a more interesting, present and focused speaker. We’ll practice activities and learn warm-ups that will not only build confidence but address that fear of public speaking and begin to teach the skills necessary to become an engaging speaker.
Students also have the option (not required!) to share a 90 second to 2-minute presentation they are working on for feedback.
Participants will need access to a computer and Zoom. You are welcome to be “on camera” as well (come as you are! We’ll be in yoga pants, most likely!). If you’re uncomfortable on camera, you’re welcome to participate via audio connection. This class is led by our Founder, Jen Brown.
(Tuesday) 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
