Presenting Like a President

Presenting Like a President is a 12-hour short course targeting students who wish to perfect their presentation skills with the use of a teleprompter – an equipment which shows you the words when making a presentation or delivering a speech, just like many presidents do. You can therefore focus not only on the vocal elements like tones of voice and how to speak like a native speaker, but also on the visual elements including postures, for example, where you put your hands. You will learn from great speakers such as former US president Barack Obama, former UK PM Teresa May, Chinese president Xi, Sir David Attenborough and Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma.
