Course Description

Public speaking consistently ranks high on top ten lists of our most common fears, yet it is something many of us have to do in both our professional and personal lives. This seminar will provide you with a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for facing and conquering your fears, or growing the skills you already have. Learn the who, what, why, when, and how of public speaking as well as the importance of language, delivery and visual aids. Take advantage of this opportunity to practise your public speaking skills by doing two in-class presentations and mindfulness and awareness techniques that will allow you to quell any lingering panic you might feel. You will take the first steps in moving past paralysis and into the pleasure that public speaking offers. Some homework between classes will be required.
