Imagine that you are captivating an audience of your peers while speaking on a panel at a leading industry conference. Wouldn't it be great to know that you can be compelling and memorable, regardless of whether you are giving a keynote speech or speaking for just five minutes on a panel discussion?
In this How to Present on a Panel course, you will learn the following:
*How to avoid the common pitfalls most executives fall into when speaking on a panel
*How to be understandable and memorable when speaking on a panel
*How to prepare and rehearse for a panel discussion
*How to stand out from the other panelists (in a positive way)
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.
