Is two weeks long enough to improve my presentation skills?
Yes. We have structured the program so that we cover all of the essential presentation concepts that professionals need to master. You will have lots of opportunities to practice and improve your skills through the exercises, assignments and feedback during the course.
I have stage fright around public speaking. Will this course help with that?
Yes. This course will address stage fright, why you experience it, and practical steps to overcome it.
What is the age limit for this course?
This course is open to everyone 18 years old or older.
Will this help me if I am not a native English speaker?
Yes. About one-third of our students are non-native English speakers. While this is not a language course, it will help anyone to present themselves, and their ideas, better. However, if you want to become more fluent in the English language, we would recommend classes for advanced English or business English.
Have you worked with students in my industry?
Probably yes. Our students come from every industry and sector, from healthcare and finance, to tech and manufacturing. We have served CEOs, data scientists, fashion designers, product developers, college students, sales reps, and many more.
Have you worked with students like me? With my challenges?
Almost definitely. We’ve worked with men and women of all ages and backgrounds, including many non-native English speakers, from several dozen countries. We’ve helped our students with concise speaking, impromptu presentations, manage challenges and pushbacks during presentations, develop persuasive messages, break down technical information for nontechnical audiences, and many other professional communication challenges.
Can I get reimbursed by my company?
Possibly, depending on your company’s learning and development policies. We are happy to provide invoices to help you request reimbursement from your organization.
