Public Speaking Courses – Beginner Level

1. The Complete Presentation and Public Speaking Speech Course

Review

Chris Haroun’s course is a well-structured guide to understanding the roots of public speaking. It is for anyone and everyone, school and college students, professionals and the one who just want to learn it for themselves.

At almost 16 hours the course is a little exhaustive but that’s where the best element comes.

Haroun in his initial introduction explains how to effectively navigate through it so that one can gain the knowledge that they need and not waste time on things irrelevant to them.

Haroun’s course is one of those very few ones that aims to teach the importance of audience analysis. Understanding who the audience is and what their tastes and preferences are is one of the most important things that any speaker needs to know.

Apart from this, the course promises a measured peak into everything from how to have buoyant beginnings to conclusive conclusions to understanding how to make effective slides for presentations.

Chris Haroun is founder & CEO of Haroun Education Ventures, an award-winning business school professor a frequent guest lecturer at several Bay Area MBA schools including Berkeley & Stanford. He is author of a bestselling book called 101 Crucial Lessons They Don’t Teach You In Business Schools.

2. Chris Anderson on Public Speaking

Review

One of the best things I liked about this course is the fact that the host is giving us lessons and examples from thousands of people who are (in most cases) highly accomplished professionals. This allowed me to draw, not just from the experience of the host but also from so many higher-achieving individuals.

Examples from people like Bill Gates, Brene Brown, Monica Lewinsky helped me get the perspective of all these people. It truly helped me believe that public speaking is not just for people with extraordinary talents. It can be learned by just about all of us.

As a beginner speaker, this course will help you get a great overview to help you know what makes a speech great and (more importantly) what to avoid as a public speaker. This will surely help you skip a lot of mistakes many speakers make in the start of their journey.

I’ve read the book written on TED talks by Chris Anderson as well. But I would prefer a video course. Why? Since the host draws a lot of lessons from examples of various TED speakers, it helps to see the examples being performed in front of you as opposed to reading and imagining them.

Skills you will learn

  • Connecting with the audience
  • How to explain concepts and ideas via speeches
  • The art of persuasion
  • Using visuals in your talk
  • How to practice public speaking

You will also learn about why working on the skill of public speaking matters more now than ever before. I personally resonated with this part the most. It’s partly why this website was started in the first place.

“Presentation literacy isn’t an optional extra for the few. It’s a core skill for the twenty-first century.”

Thinking spontaneously is one of the most important skills and most courses tend to ignore it. This course however has a dedicated module on it.

Review

One of the toughest aspects of public speaking is the incorporation of humor in one’s speeches. It is something that often leaves even the most experienced speakers baffled.

The exercises – The course comes with explanations and exercises that supplement it ensuring that the learning is complete.

It also talks about rehearsed spontaneity which is the single most important thing in humorous speaking and how to control the audience.

If you thought motivating the audience is as simple as telling them the story of your struggle and how you overcame it, you are mistaken.

Review

As someone who has been a student of public speaking for almost two years now, I know the struggle that comes with impromptu speaking. The course was a delight simply because it meticulously brought forth six different techniques of impromptu speaking and explained how to use each one.

The best aspect of the course was the end where the concept of idiomatic and proverbial language and how to incorporate that in impromptu speaking is discussed.

More often than not, in impromptu speaking we are given a quote and then we don’t how to progress from there. Here, he shares techniques that can help one navigate their way out.

8. How to Drastically Reduce Time on Speech Preparation

Review

For everyone who has ever attempted learning public speaking in their lives, they know of two things

1.      Often, there isn’t a lot of time one has to prep before a college/business presentation

2.      Even if there is time, it always seems less because of the sheer amount of work needed to prepare for a speech.

Review

Jason Teteak’s course is one of a kind aimed solely at advanced speakers. It tackles challenges and issues that often plague those who have been doing this for a long time. This is Teteak’s passion project and he calls this Dazzle. Dazzle is a 13-module program wherein he discusses the top 117 public speaking tips and tricks to constitute the best speakers. It is an extremely rigorous course and almost aims to touch upon every concept possible right from how to write right to how to deliver well. Some of the best features of the course are

1. How to create a PowerPoint – We have all been here. We need power points to ensure that we don’t forget our points but are scared that it may distract the audience. Advanced speakers need to master the art of playing nondistractive power points in the background. This is a very important skill but yet somehow always not touched upon.

2. How to build a relationship with the audience- This is also of great importance. As public speakers, it is of extreme importance to build a connection with the audience. It is important to understand how to do this the right way for immediate and effective results.

Thus, this course promises to be a great learning experience for any advanced level speaker wanting to clean out the lesser-seen ripples and become better.

12. Media Training and Public Speaking Training for Candidates

Review

While for most, public speaking is an essential skill that can help them elevate their careers, for those who run for public office, it is the single most thing that can make their career. T.J. Walker presents one of the best courses that aim at solely teaching public office aspirants on how to conduct themselves as good speakers.

The course is an all in all instruction into how one should write, practice, and rehearse a speech. It addresses issues like whether one should memorize, how to address a heckler etc.

The best part about the course is the fact that aims to also look into issues like how should one address should they have made an error while speaking, how to correctly use a teleprompter, and other such specific needs of public office aspirants.

A course like this is a must for anyone who is either an existing public servant looking to improve their skills or someone who is aspiring to be one.

The last section of the course teaches the most important lesson, how to be media-ready. As people who are in the limelight all the time knowing how to tactfully handle the media is a skill that will always come in handy for them.

It seeks to empower them with things like how to dress for an interview, how to smile right, how to sit in an interview, how to frame media messages, and a few things on sound bites.

T.J. Walker has been training Presidents, Members of Parliament, and U.S. Senators for three decades now and this is one of the best people to learn from. This course promises to leave all aspirants and existing officers with a greater command over their speech-making abilities.

Skills you will learn

13. Achieve BIG in Career by Enhancing Public Speaking Skills

Review

Praveen Wadalkar’s course on public speaking doesn’t aim to touch upon anything that is not said or done before, yet it stands out primarily because of the way in which he deals with certain concepts. The course begins with a lesson on unlearning the myths about public speaking and then progresses to talk about public speaking.

Some of the remarkable ideas covered in the course include

1.      Stage as an element – Most courses don’t teach how the stage can be used in a variety of ways.

2.      It’s not about English – Most people often believe that public speaking is always about English whereas it has nothing to do with the language. One can become an accomplished speaker in any language that they desire.

3.      How to end right – there is a lot said and done about how to begin right but very little on how to end right. Your ending also has to be as impactful as your start. 

Apart from this, the course touches upon all other elements of public speaking like body language, pace, etc. Praveen Wadalkar is a nine-time TEDx Speaker and is deeply passionate about making the craft of public speaking more accessible to everyone. In this course, he aims to do just that and ensures that he makes it more palatable for everyone.

Skills you will learn

  1. The correct structure for a speech or presentation

Public Speaking Courses on Udemy for Kids and Students

14. Public Speaking for Kids (&Parents) – Kids can speak

Review

A certified public speaking course designed especially for children in the Elementary section and taught by another student their age was meat enough for me to check it out.

Udemy’s Public Speaking for Kids is indeed a great course not only for elementary school children but also for kids above that age and adults too who are wishing to learn more about public speaking.

It is taught by a young seven-year-old YouTuber called Rossa Walker. The entire course consists of eleven sections and the last few have famed public speaking coach, TJ Walker comes in and do a couple of sections.

Two of the best attributes of the course are

1.      It prescribes assignments – Considering that public speaking is a skill best learned when practiced, this course has a series of assignments that require the students to record themselves and share. 

2.      The specificity of the syllabus – there are sections in the syllabus that deal with situations that will need a young child to speak in. For eg, “How to Speak to the Waitstaff at the Restaurant”, “How to introduce yourself”, “Show and Tell’s can be fun too” etc.

Considering that a lot of young kids are enamored by the world of YouTube and want to have their own channels, the course addressing that, is also a bonus.

The Q&A with TJ at the end is also an excellent way to ensure that if there are adults who are taking this program their queries will also be addressed.

Skills you will learn

  1. How to introduce yourself
  2. How to address a message in a speech
  3. How to channel emotions in a speech
  4. How to practice right to be a comfortable speaker
  5. How to sort basic negative body language issues
  6. How to persuade your audience

What do you want to accomplish when you speak? That’s the first thing you want to figure out every time you speak.

15. Public Speaking for College Students: Become a Great Speaker

Review

As college students, most of us have been in positions where we have been asked to get up in front of the class and present of any given topic. Some of these presentations were impromptu and some well researched, yet most of the times we failed to make an impact.

This is due to a lack of basic understanding of Public Speaking. TJ Walker’s “Public Speaking for College Students” is a great course, to begin with primarily because

1.      Seeks to address student needs – The course is focused on teaching students how to become effective public speakers in basically every situation that they might face.

These include how to present research papers and dissertations, how to summarise review papers and reports, how to ask for a pay rise at their part-time job, how to raise funds for their volunteering work etc.  A course that deals so specifically with all these is a rarity and that’s what makes this course fruitful for the students. 

2.      The Video assignments – Public Speaking unlike a lot of other subjects is not something that one can read on and listen to people talk on and master. It requires practice.  The idea of having the students turn in videos of them speaking on a topic is a good exercise and ensures that students remember what they learnt. 

There is a section where the students are requested to review their own video, strive to understand where they went wrong, and work towards fixing it. This ensures that students learn the importance of video recording themselves and gauge a basic understanding of non-verbal and verbal stylistics. 

Considering that effective public speaking is fast becoming a must-needed skill this course is a great one, to begin with, especially for college students who constantly have to make presentations.

Skills you will learn

  1. How to introduce yourself effectively
  2. The need to have goals before every presentation.
  3. How to accomplish these goals
  4. How to choose relevant examples and stories
  5. How to take constructive criticism

Public Speaking is you talking, trying to get someone else in the audience whether it’s one other person or fifty or five thousand to understand you, remember your message so they can take some kind of action.

16. Public Speaking for Kids and Teens

Review

Udemy’s “Public Speaking for Kids and Teens” is a course that aims to break down the very basics of Public Speaking for kids. The course has sections that specifically cater to eye contact, building confidence, hand gesture, body language, and stage fright. The first section is titled “What is Public Speaking” that aims to start from the start. Two of the most remarkable features of the course are

1.      Use of visuals – Along with the teacher speaking in the video there are quite a few visuals used. The images and graphics make it easy to grab and eventually retain the attention of children which is very fickle.

2.      Exercises – The exercises are not too many and short and there is time given in the video lesson itself for the kids to do it without pausing the video. This ensures that the kids don’t lose their attention while they are learning. 

Helmed by a young girl called Athira, the course promises to be a firm beginning into the world of public speaking primarily because it aims to start with the very basics of the lessons in public speaking.

The fact that the teacher is a young teenager herself, is also a plus point since the students feel a certain connection that will enable the learning to happen faster.

Skills you will learn

  1. How to make better eye contact
  2. How to be more confident
  3. How to use the correct hand gestures

17. Public Speaking for Parents – Teach your kids to present in 1 hour

Review

TJ Walker’s Public Speaking for Parents is a course that aims to get parents to sit with their children and teach them the basics of public speaking. It is an extremely interesting course where TJ Walker walks his students (the parents here) on the tips and tricks to making their children better public speakers.

What makes this course truly remarkable is the fact that the teacher, TJ Walker shares his own personal experience of grooming his very shy daughter to become a public speaker.

His experience of how never critiquing his daughter but always focusing on reiterating her strengths to push her to be better is a very clever tactic and he shares quite a few of them. The resources attached along with the videos like the check sheet defining basic elements of public speaking etc are helpful as well.

Out and out, for a one-hour course, this one seems fun and yet enriching in terms of educating, and eventually it can be a chance to spend some quality time with your kids.

Skills you will learn

  1. Basics of Public Speaking
  2. How to critique the right way
  3. How to prepare your child for presentations

Public Speaking isn’t just taught in most schools and if it is taught it is poorly taught.

It then goes on to explain in detail how certain breathing exercises and techniques can help elevate or depress your voice and how clarity and pitch are also important and need to be worked upon.

Honestly, for a course that promises to be a basic one on vocal variety, this is a pretty comprehensive one that leaves the student with all the information they need to start with.

Marina Deestan – Jones’ experience as a vocal, speech, and drama tutor along with the thoughtfully structured exercises make this a must-do course for everyone struggling with understanding vocal variety and how to implement it.

Skills you will learn

  1. The connection between body posture and breathing and its’ impact on speaking
  2. The need for clear articulation
  3. Understanding pitch and how to bring about variations

Whoever we are, whatever we do, our voice is the most effective way of reaching out to someone.

Review

Udemy’s crash course on public speaking for busy professionals promises to introduce as well as hone the skill that is in demand the most – Public Speaking. It has a meticulously structured syllabus that ensures it covers all aspects of public speaking skills – understanding what it is, how to craft a speech, and the right way to deliver one.

The best part about the course is its dealing with the aspect of delivery. This course talks about not only the correct way of delivering but also what is the correct way to practice.

The only drawback of this course is the fact that it will only cater better to people who have learnt public speaking either in school/college or elsewhere.

21. Teacher Training – Teachers can be Great Speakers

Review

T.J. Walker’s course on making teachers better communicators is a well-conceptualized and executed one. He aims to draw the attention of his students to how they can make certain concepts easy and memorable for students.

His idea of getting the students to focus on the top five principals in a class and how to get the teachers to do it is a great trick and he has a bunch of these in the course

The best part about this course is the fact that just like other T.J. Walker courses this one also comes with video assignments ensuring that the learning is completed.

The last section which is the Q and A has T.J. Walker answer them in a video so that he can better explain the vocal variety and how to pace in a room the right way. This makes it more fruitful.

Skills you will learn

  1. How to present better
  2. How to weave narratives
  3. How to make a boring topic interesting

The human memory is much more of an image processor than it is a word processor or a number processor.

Public Speaking Courses on Udemy for Content Creators

22. Delivery Skills for Online Content Creators

Review

We are all surrounded by content creators and a lot of us also aspire to be like them. This course aims to cater to both these categories.

It covers a variety of aspects, teaching them everything they need to know – using the right tone, how to express to the camera and look genuine, how to use different postures effectively etc.

The most alluring aspect of the course it the fact that it is not over informative in any of its aspects.

For eg, while explaining the different voice variations, the teacher also enlists certain other things to keep in mind like what expressions usually aid that tone. This betters the understanding without making it too heavy for a noob.

Taught by International trainer Fahad Farook, the course has been designed in a way that it can help all – someone who is just starting out, and someone who has been on the scene for a while.

Skills you will learn
