This is an excellent course which shows a simple & practical way to outline along with present a speech/talk. It will help me be a better presenter by looking at a speech as a talk with many people instead of a big presentation.

This course has taught me that in public speaking I am to fulfill a need for the audience. To meet that need I must be plain and direct about what I want them to hear. Show them what I am trying to say by giving real life examples. Tell them how to apply what they have heard to their lives or give them the opportunity to choose to use the application.

This course provided me with a lot of new information on public speaking since I have not taken a course on this subject before. I found the lessons well organized and full of depth. I found the overall course to help me to gain knowledge about the topic. I have through this course been able to evaluate myself as a public speaker and learn about my own approach to public speaking. I know I will continue to use the material I learned in this course throughout my career when asked to do public speaking.

This course has helped me to improve on my sermon preparation and delivery. Most of the time, we only focus on the logical outline but in fact, its only now that I have become aware of the “Psychological Outline”. It has been a revelation and I will put it into practice immediately. The illustration of the ‘two islands separated by a gulf’, will be difficult to forget. It was indeed a wonderful time. May God bless you.
