Working life skills



Roughly speaking, presenting (speaking/performing) can be divided into two parts: the content and expressing it. For this course specifically, the content has been divided into seven sections for ease of access and practice. 

Each section includes theory session in a video format as well as tools, tips and various exercises, which can be completed independently. You will find a reading list for deepening your subject knowledge at the end of every section. 

Webinars, video conferencing and remote courses are now a part of our daily lives and here to stay. You can find tips and ideas for gaining confidence and inspiring you to present remotely at the end of each section.

Different sections of the course

  1. STRUCTURE How to structure an interesting and compelling presentation?
  2. STORYTELLING: How to consciously use the power of stories in a presentation?
  3. INTERACTION: How to create and maintain a true connection to your audience?
  4. BODY LANGUAGE: How to support your speech with your body language? What is status expression?
  5. VOICE: How to be vivid in the way you speak? How to train your voice?
  6. STAGE FRIGHT: How to use stage fright as your superpower? How to prepare to a presentation?
  7. IMPROVISATION: How to use improvisation as a tool when training your public speaking skills?

How do I complete this course?

We recommend completing the coaching in a chronological order so that you can create your presentation systematically; from topics like streamlining your content to expression and preparation. Choose a topic that you are possibly presenting about in the near future. Perhaps it’s linked to your work or studies, or just something you have an interest in.

If you are just looking for some inspiration, new information or practical tips, but don't want to create a presentation just now, feel free to start from any section. They all work as separate entities as well.

Optimum schedule for completing the coaching takes 4-8 weeks (1-2 parts per week).
