Being a competent public speaker allows you to showcase your work and communicate effectively. You won't convey your message properly—even after hours perfecting it—if you are unable to engage your audience, handle audience challenges as they arise, and tackle your nerves and anxiety. This course explores methods of delivering an effective speech, such as making a good first impression and building rapport with your audience. It discusses techniques for handling challenges during a speech, for example, reviving an audience's focus and handling difficult questions or hecklers. Finally, the course introduces strategies to help you overcome public speaking anxiety.
