The Projects Pitch & Present Public Speaking Course is a 6-week programme designed to help you become a better public speaker. Whether you’re a newbie or experienced orator, there’ll be something enlightening for you here.
Jez Kay will take you on a public speaking odyssey, from overcoming the initial fear of speaking in public, through structuring a speech, embracing the power of language, using your body to full effect and trying out different pitch and storytelling techniques, such as Pecha Kucha and The Pixar Pitch, all leading to you delivering an inspiring a 7-minute speech on the topic of your choice confidently, coherently and with engagingly emotional clout.
The 6 week course will cover:
25th September: Intro: Getting over the fear
2nd October: Structure: Beginning, Middle, End
9th October: 3 minute speeches
16th October: Introduction to Pecha Kucha and The Pixar Pitch
23rd October: Pecha Kucha – Your presentations
30th October: A speech to knock ’em dead
Presented by Jez Kay, a digital professional based in Brighton who has been delivering solutions and service for over 2 decades – to the world of tech (Cisco), food (Unilever), FMCG (Philips) and science publishing (Springer Nature) as well as numerous small businesses inside and outside of the UK.
Recently he has focused his attentions on empowering others to master the world of modern communication, improving their communications skills online and off. That includes vlogs, podcasts, speaker reels, promotional montages, even their own sonic branding – signature tunes and idents. He and his team can produce it for you or he’ll teach you how to do it yourself. And of course, central to all this is performance – the core of communication.
Jez managed to make everyone on the course more confident about their abilities whilst teaching us key skills and concepts which helped to improve everyone’s delivery and courage regarding public speaking.
I’m really happy I took this course and will be booking future sessions with him and recommending him to others.
