Effective Public Speaking

About the Level 2 Effective Public Speaking Certificate

The ability to speak publicly is a skill a lot of employers look for. It is also a useful talent to have in day to day life.

This short course aims to turn you into an effective and powerful public speaker.

The effective public speaking course material covers a range of techniques which will help you improve your spoken abilities. The engaging units include tips on how to reduce embarrassment, nervousness and fear, avoid thought confusion, improve articulation and increase relaxation. This distance learning course will also teach you how to plan and prepare the content.
