Public Speaking at Skillz

According to a survey by the Sunday Times of London, 41% of people list public speaking as their biggest fear. Forget small spaces, darkness, and spiders – standing up in front of a crowd and talking is far more terrifying for most people.

Mastering this fear and getting comfortable speaking in public can be a great ego booster - not to mention a huge benefit to your career. The Public Speaking Workshop at Skillz will teach you some valuable skills to help you deliver presentations with impact. Bottom line: good public speaking skills are a necessity in the workplace.

The Public Speaking Workshop at Skillz is a mixture of seminar learning and hands-on practice with direct trainer feedback, all in a casual and highly interactive group format.

By the end of the workshop you will:

Understand the different elements of public speaking
Master being audience-centric in your speaking
Learn about the different types of speeches
Practice how to generate and organize content for presentations
Deconstruct the secrets of impactful body language
Join our monthly Public Speaking Workshop and become a more confident speaker!

Certificates of participation are given out.
