Course Overview

This training course introduces students to the fundamentals of creating a presentation. Students will discuss the components of a good speech or presentation, and then they will learn how to develop their own.

As students work through the activities, they will write and deliver three short presentations in class. They will be introduced to a variety of delivery techniques that include building rapport with the audience, using body language and humor, and facilitating a question and answer session.
