In school, or in public interactions, we are called upon to speak or make comments. Often, people tasked with such speeches become flummoxed. They might not know what to talk about, or ramble without making a point, or simply be confusing to listen to. This program is designed to help you shine where others struggle.

Join the unique and creative workshops that are designed to prepare High School Students for next level of public speaking. Workshops are offered online by TEDx speakers and Distinguished Toastmaster. In this 10 weeks course, student will craft their speeches and work on their delivery alongside the online sessions with the right tools and techniques. Only 30 Slots are available for the registration. Total cost of the program is $500, which is tax exempt. Fees can be paid in full (preferred) and in two installments - $300 as the first installment and $200 as the second installment.

Who should take this course?
This course is designed for high school students, college students and young professionals. If you’re a beginner, this course will help you quickly and effectively to master the fundamentals of speaking. If you’re a seasoned speaker, this course will help you better understand public speaking and take you to the next level.

What this course will offer?
The students will go through the unique hands on process of both crafting and delivering speech with confidence. The course will be conducted in three phases during an engaging 10-week curriculum. 
Phase 1: Writing an engaging speech
Phase 2: Delivering with confidence
Phase 3: Student’s Speech practice
