About This Class

Utilize skills and tactics by entertainers such as improvisers and actors to elevate your public speaking performance, forget the fear, and learn to love the spotlight!

Public speaking is the most common #1 phobia in today's society, and at the same time, our abilities to strongly represent ourselves are becoming more and more of a priority. Whether we are job interviewing, pitching a startup, actively networking, or needing to lead a presentation in a boardroom or on a massive stage, confidence, clarity, and communication skills need to hit the mark.

In this fun and interactive supersized version of our “Stand and Deliver” class, you will learn how to bring out the best of yourself by proven methods which performers utilize to engage an audience, relax your nerves, leave an impression, and thrive off of positive attention.

The best place to park is in the structure off of Colorado and 2nd St. The first 90 minutes are free (269 Colorado Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401).

The end of the Expo Line is the Downtown Santa Monica station, which is a 5-minute walk to campus.

The 733 bus also ends in Santa Monica directly in front of our building.

Takeaways

  • In depth lecture which will provide enhancement to your communication skills and abilities to connect with people
  • Learn new ways of handling stress and nerves associated to public speaking and presenting yourself in high pressure situations
