Imagine that every time you speak, your audience not only understands you, but is persuaded by your arguments and ideas. Wouldn't it be great to know that when you speak, people will be convinced of the vision you have?
In this How to Give a Persuasive Speech course you will learn the following:
*How to be more persuasive in every presentation
*How to avoid the most common blunders that destroy a speaker's ability to persuade
*How to connect with your audience at an emotional level and not just an intellectual level
*How to be a great speaker
This 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.
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.
