    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The greatest fear most people have is public speaking. By learning the fundamentals of speaking in public, you will not only learn how to overcome this fear but will also develop leadership skills, presentation techniques, and build up self-confidence. This will help you advance both personally and professionally.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was the final assignment where each student had to create a Powerpoint presentation, sharing some business idea they would develop. It gave me a chance to think deeply about some business ideas I had and taught me how to do the research to put together a business plan for one of these ideas. A great experience for anyone wanting to learn how to present a business plan before investors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thoroughly prepared with your speeches, make note cards with bullet points only, and practice your speeches before class. When you get up to present, speak naturally and from your heart. Believe me, the audience can tell when you're being real or faking it.
