This is a required course in the Strategic Communication Management Specialized Studies.
The ability to communicate effectively in a professional or personal setting is a valuable asset. To convey ideas and persuade a person or audience that a product, service, or idea is best suited for their needs, it is essential to speak articulately. In addition, for a client-based audience, it is imperative to be organized and skilled at expressing ideas and opinions to co-workers, employers and professional peers. Throughout the course, participants will be required to give presentations, actively participate in virtual class discussions, engage in interactive exercises, and critique peers on their journey to create compelling presentations.
The course provides opportunities to build confidence in front of an audience, tackle impromptu speaking, and learn how to use your voice as a powerful tool. Students will also learn to organize content to connect with the audience and deliver a powerful message by using visual aids and becoming cognizant of the impression made through body language, posture, and eye contact.
