Public speaking survival kit

This course enables participants to effectively deliver their messages in public appearances and interviews. The focus is on situations participants are likely to encounter in their professional lives, in particular in a panel discussion or a radio or newspaper interview. Participants will learn to develop accessible language and to stay on message.

The course is primarily about the right messaging – boiling down what you have to say in a way that people can understand and relate to.

It is a highly interactive setting that requires students to contribute throughout by presenting themselves and giving constructive feedback to peers.
