Description

Confidence is the main thing you need in order to be able to stand up onstage and deliver a speech to anyone. Even if you're in a business meeting, or whether it's speaking to strangers at a networking event, confidence will give you that extra edge to be able to deliver your ideas and speak without fear.

In this course I give you simple techniques and activities that you can do yourself in your own time. I would recommend to try the techniques for at least 30 minutes a day. The activities will take longer, but with the willpower and dedication to becoming confident, try to make time. This activities are not quick fixes, these are techniques you use to make that change over time.

All of the activities that have been included, are activities that I have used myself and still do. They are basic, but they work very well. They have changed me. From a quiet and shy person, I have become a person who is full of confidence mentally and the way I present myself physically.

What is in the course?

These are the three sections that we will be looking at.

  1. Tips and Tricks

  2. Ways of Finding Confidence Through Different Techniques and Activities

  3. Motivation and Other Courses Offered

What are you going to take away from this?

  • How to become self confident.

  • How to become confident through different tips and activities.

  • Create the foundations to becoming the public speaker you want to be.

  • Physical activities and writing activities to gain self consciousness.

  • Tips to help with preparing for a speech and how to conquer that fear of looking at the audience.

  • Changing the way you interact with others around you.

I would recommend you try all of the things in the course, but besides the main assignments, you can pick and choose what works for you.

Your certificate will be you actually performing your own speech, and recording it. I don't like to give out pieces of paper that say you have achieved something, I would rather you have done something physically and keep going over things. Each step you take is a personal certificate.

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners who want to start public speaking
  • Speakers who want to improve their public speaking
  • People who want to change the way they view public speaking

Don't worry about the context of the speech so much, all I want you do is deliver a small speech to your family and friends. This exercise is just to get you into the groove of speaking in front of people. If you want to push it, you can set up a speech to deliver to a small group of strangers.

Now to get the ball rolling with this, first you need shout your name out once in public. This is to get rid of any jitters or thoughts that public speaking with confidence is difficult. If you can shout your name out in public, public speaking from then on should be a breeze. If not, keep doing it.
