Course Description

You are not alone if your palms get a little sweaty when you have to speak in front of others. Whether delivering a speech in front of a large audience or having a direct conversation with one or two friends or coworkers, public speaking is one of the most common anxiety-inducing experiences. Our stress and nerves can impede our ability to deliver a clear message. "Speak with Confidence" will teach you to define and understand speaking anxiety. By understanding the typical causes of speaking anxiety and learning real-world relaxation and confidence-boosting techniques, you will learn practical ways to tackle and overcome your public speaking fears.
