Passion is contagious. Learn how to harness your own or others’ creative vision into a compelling oral presentation. Develop strategies to gain poise and confidence and deepen your ability to connect empathically with your audience. Using a set of core public speaking techniques, physical exercises, and theater games, learn to break through insecurities; enhance your ability to hone your fundamental creative narrative; listen, present, pitch, propose, connect and network with stakeholders, and spark curiosity and buy-in from prospective audiences–whether buyers, dealers, clients, funders and investors. Class will be experiential with a significant amount of hands-on practice. Students can expect a rich mix of lecture, partner practice, critique, reading, and class discussion.
Note: Class meets Oct 1, 8 and 22 (no class Oct 15)
