Public Speaking by Activate to Captivate
Based on acting fundamentals, participants will practice the techniques that top speakers utilize to craft dynamic and compelling presentations. In eight sessions participants will learn:

-    How to overcome self-consciousness

-    Turn passive presentations into active ones

-    Use vocal variety to breathe life into a performance

Proven effective, these techniques are a valuable asset in meetings, job interviews, and research presentations. The communication certificate program, designed specifically for non-actors, is open to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
