Speaking Essentials [electronic resource]

Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)

Does giving a typical business presentation put a person in mortal danger? Of course not, but statistics suggest that many people dread public speaking more than they fear death. This program shows students ways to overcome that kind of paralysis and transform it into positive energy. These include thorough preparation (from learning the wants and needs of the audience to scoping out the location at which the speech will take place) as well as starting with a strong opener, finding the right pace, using nonverbal communication, and more.
