Why this course?

You've probably sat through some awful speeches in your time. Can you remember why you tuned out? Most speeches end up boring the audience for the same three reasons. The speaker didn't plan; didn't focus on the message; and didn't gel with the audience. This course teaches you how to leave a lasting impression.
