What will you learn?

Maybe you're delivering a corporate presentation or interviewing for a new job. Maybe you're a teacher lecturing students or a citizen addressing a neighbourhood association.

Whatever the situation, being able to speak in public is essential to success. Many of us have a deep fear of public speaking. Or we think it's just an intuitive talent that can't be learned… this couldn’t be further than the truth!

Explorations of public speaking are often bogged down in complex rhetorical terms. This course has been designed to make the 'The Art of Public Speaking' accessible to everyone. In order to do this, the course takes you through each of the three key components of successful public speaking.

• How to prepare for public speaking

• How to craft a great speech

• How to handle your audience

Practical Advice to Help You in Any Situation

The Art of Public Speaking, though rooted in rich history, is packed with practical advice. Here are just three of the tips you'll find:

• Speak from personal knowledge: Use personal experiences to allow your audience to better connect with you. In polite conversation, talking about yourself is frowned upon; in public speaking, it's essential.

• Organise your facts into a story: When drafting a speech, find the underlying stories in your topic and organise your information around these stories. You'll find it easier to remember your speech, and your audience will engage more with your message.

• Weave familiar references into your speech: Using familiar quotations when addressing your audience can establish a common ground. They may not be your words but, when used sparingly, they can infuse your speech with added power.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
