Rapid and intensive training techniques to go further

Do you already feel comfortable and have experience in public speaking but still for a challenge? 

This course is aimed at people that have taken our Public Speaking Fundamentals course, or that have sufficient public speaking experience and feel comfortable speaking and improvising in front of the audience.

This 6-week course will take your skills to the next level: 
we will further explore the art of rhetoric and advanced techniques you can use to craft a memorable speech. 

Browse the Lesson Plan

Week 1: Introduction to rethoric

You'll meet your instructor, classmates, and explore 5 cannons of rhetoric, that will guide us throughout the coming weeks.

Week 2: The Art of Delivery

In this session, we will explore the delivery canon of rhetoric, particularly focusing on non-verbal aspects of rhetoric. We will practice speaking using theatrical masks and do a detailed video analysis of your speech.

Week 3: Invention and arrangement

Creating and structuring your speech is crucial, in designing a memorable speech. In this creative session, we will explore how to come up with arguments, ideas, stories for your speech and then arrange them into adequate sequence and structure.

Week 4: Adding a Style

Once you have your speech idea and structure ready, it’s time to start writing. In this session, we will explore tools of effective speech writing as well as add figures of speech to make your speech stand out and be impactful. 

Week 5:  Memory and Delivery

Once you’ve written a speech it’s time to memorize it, as you don’t want to present it from the paper. In this session, we will explore ancient techniques of speech memorization as well as practice your final speech. 

Week 6: Delivering a speech/Hosting EURx Talks

It will be time to prepare and face one last challenge: time to present a 10min speech at our EURx Talks event. For those that feel like a challenge, there will be also an option to host a EURx Talks.

Who is this course for?

The ability to speak in front of people and deliver a clear message is a crucial skill for a successful career, whether academic or otherwise.

The exercises we were not just well structured and effective, but fun. Wait till you get to do a power-point karaoke or record your speech in front of a teleprompter like a professional TV host and you’ll get what I mean. I used to like public speaking before the course, but now I love it.
