Course Title: The Forgotten “A” in Presentation and Public Speaking Duration: 12 hours (25 July-4 Aug 2020)
Overview: Irrespective of any professional capacity you might hold, you are often required to present your ideas, solutions or services to colleagues or clients. You might be delivering sales pitches, making presentations to senior managers, contributing to formal meetings, presenting your ideas to a class, or even talk publicly in a semi-formal gathering; they can all be daunting experiences even when you are confident in your material. A look at some of the successful presentations and speeches can show us how “acting” plays an important part in making those presentations effective.
The “A” in the course title stands for acting, which is further and deeper than the mere body language. This course attempts to integrate some of the acting skills needed to deliver more effective presentations and, ideally, speeches. The course is a highly practical one that will enable you to develop core presentation skills and give you the opportunity to practice these skills in a safe and friendly environment.
