Description

Have you ever had the experience that people won't listen to you? Would you like to be one of those people for whom people instinctively fall quiet and really listen, whose words carry real weight and impact? With this course, you can and will be like that! 

Making ourselves heard is a challenge simply because most of us have never been trained to speak effectively. 

Powerful Speaking covers an important set of skills. Whether you're teaching your child, closing a prospective client, asking for a raise from your boss or proposing marriage to your partner, what you say and the way you say it will determine the outcome. 

Many factors contribute to how effectively you speak. We'll reveal all the secrets of content and delivery in this course – everything from vocabulary to intonation – in order to transform your power so that you will speak confidently, naturally and with conviction. My TED talk on powerful speaking has over 35 million views on TED's website alone, putting it in the top 10 TED talks of all time. 

So join me on this Powerful Speaking course, which will give weight and authority to your words and leave you speaking so that people listen.
