What you'll learn in this public speaking class:

Conquer your fear of public speaking with gradual exposure in manageable steps 

Become more confident and effective in formal presentations, group discussions, and business meetings. We have been helping professionals, with moderate to severe public speaking issues, become dynamic, confident communicators in virtually any speaking environment.

Our 100% success rate over 20 years for wedding speeches is just one indication of our effectiveness. But, whatever the challenge, (formal presentation, group discussion, business meeting, sales, confrontation, employment interview) the program is customized to fit your needs.

Housed in a non-threatening environment, the ongoing schedule allows you to start at any time. Average class size is 10 - 20, with each individual allotted sufficient time to work on exercises from the course workbook. The emphasis is on incremental practice, not performance.

Video available to chart progress and anxiety monitored to insure each step is challenging yet manageable.

Gradual Exposure Program Outline for Public Speaking Anxiety:

Session One - Get comfortable hearing your voice in public by responding to very simple questions while seated. The questions (i.e., name, occupation, where you live, etc.) require little thought or content.

Session Two
- Learning to stand confidently before a group. You will stand, with several others and respond to simple questions. As your confidence increases, one by one, each person standing will sit, until you are standing alone. You will continue until this begins to feel comfortable.

Session Three
- This exercise is the same as the previous one except you start by standing alone.

Session Four
- Gestures and Movement. Enhance your message, decrease tension and project a confident demeanor incorporating non-verbal skills.

Session Five - Implement the skills learned in the session four by relating a personal experience using gestures and movement to enhance your narrative.

Session Six - Respond to Questions. Open the floor to questions on a topic of choice.

Session Seven
- Impromptu Speaking. Learn to organize and deliver an unprepared (no notes) talk.

Session Eight -
Prepared Speech (Instructor Guided). Learn the secret of outlining and presenting a prepared speech with minimal effort or stress.

Session Nine
- Prepared Speech. Outline and deliver a speech unassisted. Once you have mastered the above you can begin simulating all manner of interpersonal and public communication including:
  • Persuasive Speaking
  • Panel Discussion
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Defending your Position
  • Debating
  • Initiating and Sustaining Conversation
  • As well as many others
Materials:

It is highly recommended that you purchase the $25 companion e-book that comes with this class. A link to purchase the e-book will be provided upon signup.

NOTE:

The course is ongoing, so each session has participants at all levels. We use a workbook which each student works through at their own pace. The program can be tailored to your particular needs. For example: work related exercise can be simulated for those facing presentations in the workplace.

Question from Anonymous
"Once the 10 session package is purchased, the student may use their sessions however they choose and can coordinate this directly with the school after booking." How are the classes coordinated? I imagine a given class would have mixed attendees at varying levels of the material covered in the "Gradual Exposure Program".
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff

Whatever level of public speaking you are at, this class helps you continue to improve. For people with anxiety, the class provides gradual exposure to public speaking through a variety of exercises. For the more experienced, it's a platform to improve various delivery techniques. It is low pressure, self-paced, in a supportive environment with lots of feedback to help you address the specific skills you want to improve.
