*This workshop is not primarily about tips and techniques (though they are offered). It’s about you giving a speech and getting individualized feedback and ways to improve.
We’ve been doing a public speaking workshop for Praxis participants for a few years, and now for the first time I’m opening it up to the public. It’s a process I learned from an amazing public speaking coach years ago when I was running a summer fellowship program at IHS.
I’ll only be accepting 10 people in this course since it demands individual time and attention for each participant to watch your speeches and provide feedback.
The course is $149, as cheap as I could get it considering the time required.
The layout is pretty straightforward. There are a series of ten short videos with tips and best practices for your preparation, props, eyes, mouth, hands, feet, and a few final odds and ends.
After watching the videos you’ll record yourself giving a 3-minute speech in front of at least one other person, submit it between May 1-3, I’ll respond with feedback within 24 hours, and you’ll do a second take and submit between May 4-6, and again I’ll deliver final feedback within 24 hours.
The course videos can be watched anytime, as many times as you like, but submissions will only be taken and feedback provided between May 1-7.
This is a pretty awesome workshop I’ve been through myself, and I think you’ll find it valuable. This open online version is new, and I’m excited to see how it goes!
