The best way to improve your communication skills is to practice consistently, rigorously, and frequently under the guidance of experienced instructors.

This is a LIVE course. You will attend each class session with your instructors and fellow students over Zoom, in addition to completing weekly and daily assignments.

This course will take you through a series of structured drills, practice assignments, and group sessions that build and reinforce key presentation skills including:

  • Self-introductions and elevator pitches
  • Presentation structures, outlining and developing your key message
  • Building confidence and reducing stage fright
  • Body language and nonverbal communication
  • Storytelling and making an impact
  • Virtual vs in-person presentations

Through a combination of verbal exercises, group practice drills, and analyzing the presentation strategies of high-profile speakers, you will develop confident and impactful presentation skills over the course of two weeks.

You will dedicate 30 minutes every day of the program for solo practice and assignments.

And during the 2-hour Zoom classes, you will practice with fellow students and receive personalized feedback from your instructors.
