Everyone is talking. But how do you get people to listen? And what is a good communicator?

This course is based on 10 years of presentation training, from students and entrepreneurs to engineers, media people and top managers. A good presentation can give you the job or the contract of your dreams, or money to put your plans into action. SpeakLabs goal is for you to be at your best in front of an audience.

This course is for you who want to be safer and better when you speak, whether you are leading meetings, teaching, public defence or giving presentations at your job. To ensure you a lot of practice and personal guidance, we have a maximum of 6 participants per instructor. We are filming along the way and give you constructive feedback.
