About the Course

Few kinds of communication can have the effect of a powerful presentation. Even a short speech can motivate people to change long-held beliefs or to take action, and a wonderfully delivered speech can transform a normal person into a leader. In this course, Prof. William Kuskin provides a series of pragmatic videos and exercises for successful public speaking and presentations. The course develops through four themes—mastering fear, developing a creative formula, using verbal and body language, and anticipating the room—so that you can discover your personal power as a speaker and give excellent presentations. Successful presentations do not rely on perfect teeth, a deep voice, or an army of scriptwriters. They depend largely on the same skills as successful Business Writing and Graphic Design: clarity, structure, and revision. The goal of the course, therefore, is to enable you to discover your own internal power as a speaker and express it to the world. After this course, with some practice, you will be able to go into any situation and command the room for as long as you like. ...

It was amazing! Professor Kuskin has so much passion and is so good at delivering his message, that I couldn't stop listening to him. (and he also speaks very slow, so x 1.75 seems like a good speed.)

Really this course is one of my favorite courses ever the way of professor Cuskin's presentation really mindblowing. It's a highly recommended course for all students or anyone with any background.

This course was interesting, and after attending Toastmasters International sessions during 10 years+, I did find a lot of good material, and learnt new techniques.

I regret what I felt was a one-sided approach to Public Speaking/Successful presentation. The one-point idea, the overall grid are excellent tools, but I'm not sure that they work for all types of speech... Inspire, Inform, Convince, Entertain, for example... There was no mention of motivation for the speech, why do we do a particular presentation. If we use the one-point method, it becomes obvious, but I think the motivation should come first.

Also no mention was made of the importance of the presentation length, but I may have missed it!?...

Yet with these reservations, I'm very glad to have taken this class.

The course provides some interesting practices and a lot of self-reflections. However, it is rather abstract, difficult for me to follow.
