Will this course help me overcome my fear of speaking?
There are no guarantees when it comes to fear, but by learning the skills and then practising outside in your day-to-day life, it is expected that your fear should reduce. Just like any skill, confidence comes from practice and when it comes to presenting, improvements come from practice, practice, practice! Because there are no scheduled live sessions with this option, you are encouraged to find as many opportunities as you can to try out the skills
Is there homework?
Yes, after you’ve watched the videos from each chapter, you’ll find a Home Practices document that gives you all manner of activities to do, think and try, either immediately or in the following days. Those activities will help improve your skills and reduce your fears. Unfortunately there is no substitute to practising, therefore change will occur in proportion to the effort you put in
Will I need to deliver a presentation during the course?
Not necessarily, but you will be invited to find opportunities to speak in your life. If you can work with a buddy, then of course you can practice techniques in a safe way
But if I'm doing this course virtually, how do I develop the skills to deliver in-person?
Much of the home-practice involves simple little activities that you can undertake during the course of a normal day, without anyone really noticing. These are designed to boost your skills and confidence
This course obviously can't replace practicing in front of a live audience, but when speaking opportunities do present themselves, you should feel better equipped with more skills, knowledge, techniques and confidence. And the course may boost your confidence enough, so that a follow up classroom training course or a local speaking group such as Toastmasters.org is possible
Is the extra free webinar a proper lesson?
No. It’s an informal session offered to anyone who is doing this self-study course or the short Taster course. It’s a chance to meet some other students, talk through some experiences and ask questions. In your contents library you’ll find a document with the invite links to the next 3 upcoming chats. They usually run monthly (typically on Fridays around 15:00ish GMT). They are not recorded
