Course Summary

 

Presentation Skills: Give a Great Acceptance Speech

 

 

 

Imagine giving an acceptance speech in front of the people you respect the most (or perhaps the whole world) and you are brief, funny, thoughtful and insightful. Wouldn't it be great if you could leave a fantastic impression on people during your brief acceptance speech?

 

In this course you will learn the following:

 

 How to say thanks in a genuine and memorable way

 How to avoid the most common blunders made by award winners

 How to appear poised and relaxed

 How to rehearse on video

 

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 watch 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.

 

How long this course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life.
