Course Description

This course is intended to turn you into a more persuasive and effective public speaker – someone who speaks with the ease, confidence, clarity, and modes of persuasion that are critical in today’s health science, nonprofit, policy and business worlds. We will cover a range of speaking scenarios, including presentations, impromptu and prepared podium speeches, as well as simulations of a press conference or media interview on camera. The course helps you develop your own personal style by deepening your understanding of the persuasive tools, recommendations, refutations, modes of analysis, and variations in audiences that motivate listeners to turn business, policy and diplomacy ideas into action. Priority enrollment for NICBC students. Meets the first half of the fall semester.
