Course Summary


Public Speaking: How to Give a Great Retirement Speech



Imagine giving your retirement speech and every one of your colleagues feels as though you are personally speaking to them and thanking them in a meaningful way. Wouldn't it be nice to end your career on a high note by giving a retirement speech where you hit all the right notes?


In this How to Give a Retirement Speech you will learn the following:


How to give a great retirement speech

How to plan stories for your speech

How to practice your speech on video

How to use the right amount of emotion and retain composure


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.


This course contains numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library.

Students will need to record themselves speaking using a cellphone, camera, or webcam
