LEARN ALL THE SKILLS NECESSARY TO BECOME A MASTER COMMUNICATOR.

The greatest of all human fears is the fear of speaking in front of other people. Wikipedia states, "The fear of public speaking affects between 75% and 95% of the population." However, a study by Stanford University and AT&T states, "The top predictor of professional success and upward mobility is how much you enjoy and how good you are at public speaking." That means the very thing we fear the most is the biggest key to our success!

I'm Gary Rogers and I've been teaching Public Speaking/Presentation Skills to many of the world's largest corporations for over 40 years. I have created a comprehensive, non-intimidating video training course that allows you to "sit in class" with other students just like you. You'll learn as they learn. You'll see actual results as students apply the skills they learn in the course. You'll also see what happens when they don't apply the skills! The course is highly interactive involving many exercises. You can also participate by recording and evaluating the same exercises using your smart phone, webcam or video camera.

The skills you will learn in this course will help you:

  • Gain Self Assurance
  • Get Hired
  • Get Promoted
  • Express Your Ideas
  • Make More Money
  • Be Recognized As A Leader

The course includes over 7 hours of instruction with 85 separate, highly informative and entertaining videos. At the end of the course you will have been taught all of the skills necessary to make you a master communicator.

  • If you're scared to death at speaking in front of other people, this course is for you.
  • If you're a good speaker and want to improve your communication skills, this course is for you.
