There are many occasions in both our professional and personal life when we are called on unexpectedly to deliver an impromptu speech. These situations offer us opportunities to influence others, inform customers or colleagues, and make an unforgettable impression - when done right.
This short course will give you the techniques to speak convincingly in these impromptu situations. Learn why impromptu speaking is so critical to your career, how to structure your words to give a clear and strong message, and what to do when you have no time to prepare and have to think on your feet.
This course is designed to help you quickly become a more effective and confident speaker in any impromptu situation.
For maximum learning, this includes a simulation game in which you can practice your impromptu speaking skills in the safety of the virtual world.
This blended course is made up of three key parts to accelerate your learning:
Learn fundamental techniques and strategies for giving an impromptu speech through expert articles, example videos and analysis.
After completing the classes, practice your impromptu skills and put them to the test in an online simulation game.
Every time you use the simulation, you'll receive instant feedback on your dialogue through AI. You can also playback your performance for self-evaluation.
Practice your impromptu speaking skills in an online simulation. The simulation can be accessed directly through your web browser and shows you a random image every 30 seconds, which you'll need to speak about for the allotted time.
There are 6 randomized images in each simulation session, which you can repeat with new images as often as you like.
At the end of the simulation, you’ll receive feedback on your performance, including your pace of speaking, use of hesitation words, how confident you sounded, and more.
You'll be speaking about a variety of objects or topics to help you practice thinking on the spot, with no preparation beforehand.
You'll only have 30 seconds to talk about each image - make sure you use your time appropriately.
Identify improvements you can make to your dialogue and body language by watching yourself back and with automated feedback.
