Public speaking is almost an essential for success nowadays—and definitely a major factor in creating a powerful brand. Those who take their courage into their hands and accept or seek speaking engagements outstrip their competitors in branding, authority and reach.

In this course, you will learn how to deliver a speech that is well planned and organized using our guide. We will show you how to inspire your audience, inform them about your topic the right way, and motivate them to take action so you can build your brand.
We will also show you how to get over your fear of public speaking so that you won’t be prevented from landing the speaking gigs that you need to grow your PR career.
Learning how to combat stage fright and take your rightful place on the speaker circuit is doable—even by the most nervous speaker—if you just break your speech down into their most basic steps and follow our step by step plan.
Our lessons can be used to help you organize speeches of any size – from larger conference stages, to smaller workshop sessions. You will feel more organized, confident and overcome your fear in the process.
