Practical tips and practical skills are the thing you need in order to get better and that is why the public speaking course New York has a focus on the practical side of public speaking.

Active public speaking course

The public speaking course New York is where you learn public speaking by just doing it. We keep the group small, so you get a lot of individual attention and opportunities to practice your public speaking skills. Like looking around by twisting your neck instead of just your eyes, so the audience feels more engaged. Or by rolling your eyes up in order to make you ‘see’ your own story, which makes it easier to remember and tell the audience.

The public speaking course New York is a safe space to practice. All the people that join the public speaking course are there for one common goal: learning how to be a better public speaker. This helps to create that safe space. In addition to these practical skills, in the New York public speaking course you will learn how to structure your presentation/speech.

“I took Herman’s class recently, and not only did I learn A LOT, but we had so much fun in the process! I feel more confident speaking in public settings and have a better understanding of what I should or should not do when I’m speaking or giving a presentation.”
