About the Course

Becoming a good speaker means developing several qualities that are not given by birth. They are obtained with will and effort, and these qualities are also related to leadership. As you know, the art of communication is the language of leadership. To achieve all these qualities, you will not only want to be good or survive when being on the stage, and mastering the art of public speaking requires something at the bottom of your soul that makes you always strive to give your best and become better. Of course, we all are human, and even when searching for excellence, we have many resistances, especially when it comes to public speaking. Why is this so? Academic studies reveal that people are more afraid of public speaking than dying. And in fact, it can make us shake our legs, tremble our voices and even forget our speech!

When it comes to public speaking, we don’t know what to do with our hands; our body shakes without control, we speak too low, and some ticks may appear. If we keep control, we may be too rigid; if we show too naturally, we may overexpose ourselves. Our body language shows everything about us. This is what happens! Our image is at risk. They will all notice if we feel insecure! Luckily, practice makes perfect, and where there is a will, there is a way. The good thing? Improving your presentation skills, gaining confidence, and overcoming fear is not the only path to success. It can be a lot of fun, self-fulfillment, and relief too.
