Power Up Your Professional Public Speaking

In today’s visual world delivering presentations effectively and professionally is essential to success. This is especially so for entrepreneurs whose funding depends on the persuasiveness of their pitch. In this workshop students will learn how to align three key aspects of communication to project a polished professional image. The three “V’s” include the Visual (how you look), Vocal (how you sound), and Verbal (what you say). This will be an interactive workshop; participants will engage in activities for each of the “V’s” of communication to practice their newly learned skills. Each student will be video-recorded at the beginning and end of the workshop and will receive access to the videos and a scoring rubric to self-evaluate their delivery skills.
