With Hard To Be Human, you will learn to organize presentations and talks clearly, write them down memorably, and deliver them confidently. By the end of a course or workshop, or after a series of individual consultations, you will be able to significantly reduce your fear of public speaking, use rehearsal techniques to develop a strong, vibrant speaking voice, and to perform dynamic speeches with joy.

The speech model that is practiced is useful for briefings, elevator talks, interviews, and even as a structure for hour-long presentations.

If you’re a beginner or a non-native English speaker, this course will help you learn to master the fundamentals of speaking. If you’re a seasoned speaker, this course will help you better understand public speaking and push you to the next level.
