This Presentation Skills course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.
Presentation Skills are essential when presenting to the board of directors. Imagine speaking in front of your board and every director is listening to you intently and nodding their heads in agreement. Wouldn't it be nice to know that every time you speak to your board of directors that you can come across as confident, understandable and memorable?
The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
Executives who have to give presentations to boards of directors.
