Sharpening Your Presentation and Speech Skills

Learn how to hold an audience’s attention by developing an individual public speaking style. Whether you’re an executive, teacher, community leader, or sales professional, develop the ability to deliver formal and informal speeches with conviction, confidence, and clarity. Discover ways to organize material for maximum impact and to make subtle use of body language and eye contact for effect. Cultivate your skill set through in-class exercises, videotaping, and constructive feedback. You are encouraged to incorporate specific career-related projects into your class presentations.
Registering at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
This course is part of the Certificate in Professional Writing and Communications. It may be taken to pursue the certificate, or as a standalone course. Questions? Contact us at The Center for Publishing and Applied Liberal Arts (PALA). Email sps.pala.ce@nyu.edu or call 212-998-7289.
