Course Description

How do they do it?

Do YOU come out on stage trembling inside? Does your audience fall asleep during your presentation? Do you get lost in your own words while speaking?

At some point, all of us have wondered: How do some people grab the attention of millions with such ease? What’s the secret?

Well, the biggest secret is that…there are no secrets. These are all skills that are developed over time.

This course is an accumulation of my notes from over 30 years of experience presenting across the world.

When you boil down every memorable speech and every great public speaker in history, you will arrive at the foundation of what makes a great public speaking performance.

The 5 Pillars of Public Speaking:

  • Strong argument
  • Clear benefit
  • Powerful delivery
  • Attractive presentation
  • Energetic ending

The good news is that you don’t have to be born as a Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins or Oprah Winfrey to do it. It’s not a gift – it’s a skill. In this course you will not only discover what these 5 pillars mean, but you will also learn how to apply them in YOUR life and presentations.

These 5 pillars are the foundation of a professional’s confidence in front of an audience. After you complete this course, YOU will be able to present with confidence next time you’re in the spotlight.

You will learn:

  • How to make a strong argument that will convince your audience.
  • How to provide a clear benefit that will grab their attention from the start.
  • How to give a powerful delivery that will inspire your audience.
  • How to make an attractive presentation – it doesn't have to be complicated!
  • How to conclude a presentation with an energetic ending. Never end with “Thank you!”

Whether you are planning to become the next TED speaker, get promoted to a CEO position or simply present your ideas to your colleagues at work or school, this course will elevate your skills to a new level.

Unlike other courses, this one was recorded with a live audience – people just like YOU. As I work through the presentation, you will see me demonstrate all of my strategies. This course will take you through the methodology that continues to allow me to stay on top of my game.

Professor Andrew Stotz is a financial analyst with a number of awards to his name, and a public speaker with 30 years of presenting experience on all continents.
