About this course
Do you get nervous before presentations? Do you want to learn how to convince your audience of your ideas and arguments? When communicating ideas to others, you have to be persuasive and confident and it is important that you understand your audience and can adapt to the situation. Speeches and presentations in the business world are no different.
Your career depends on you being able to positively present yourself, whether in a meeting or at a conference. However, public speaking doesn't have to be scary, it can even be fun and you can excel at it by applying the right skills and techniques.
In five weeks, you will:
• Understand how to convince different audiences
• Discover your communication style
• Know how to structure clear and concise presentations
• Deliver those presentations professionally and persuasively with real confidence
We will analyse famous speeches, those of politicians and entrepreneurs, to identify their successful approaches as well as weak spots, incorporating these learnings in our own presentations in an interactive and fun way.
Experienced coach and lecturer, Alexandra Maratchi (Homuork CEO) will lead the course, guiding you through a variety of techniques to help prepare, structure, rehearse and deliver a great speech. Presentation Skills for Business is a course developed by Homuork in collaboration with professor Joan Francesc Cánovas from Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona and other international Public Speaking experts who share their research and insider tips, illustrate effective techniques and ensure you get a well-rounded view of the success factors in public speaking.
