Course overview

From time to time most of us get asked to make a speech, either at a social function or at work, and if we’re not sure what to say or how to say it, the experience can be nerve-wracking.  But it doesn't have to be.

This course offers simple-to-understand and simple-to-follow solutions that anyone can use to prepare and deliver an effective speech in any situation.

You will learn how to:

  • research material for a speech
  • arrange your material
  • write your speech
  • practise your speech
  • use your words to touch your audience
  • use your voice and your body language to enhance your words
  • channel your nerves into positive energy
  • deliver your speech with maximum effect
  • answer questions or interjections from your audience.

A speech should be as enjoyable for the speaker as it is for the audience and this course will help you achieve that.

This short course is non-accredited therefore is not registered with the National Training Register.
