Course Description

This 2 hour program shows you three dozen practical strategies that you can use tomorrow to give a more compelling lecture, and how to generate excitement, enthusiasm, and passion for your lectures even if your topics are dry or boring.

We know how it feels when you have to give a lecture to a room full of students that wouldn't listen to you if they weren't required to. Our experienced educators can show you how to make dry topics come to life and generate the kind of excitement that will make your lectures entertaining and useful for your listeners.

Don't take our word for it. Here's what others have to say:

"The key to success is shared here in a way that can be personalized to match your own style...Jason does for public speaking what style guides do for effective writing."

Peggy Burns

Assistant Dean for Advancement, University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts

"I figured Jason Teteak's programs might have a few new tricks—but not much that I hadn't heard before. I was wrong. Jason integrates the latest research on presenting, learning, and audience dynamics with a captivating style that plays with the ironic fact that he is doing presentations… about presentation skills. And therein lies the secret to these marvelous programs."

Philip Deloria

Professor and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies University of Michigan - LSA
