Public Speaking is not something most engineers are naturally good at, but it can be a learned skill. Imagine delivering a speech to a group of engineers and non-engineers alike, and everyone is following you closely and understanding your message. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can deliver a presentation on an engineering topic and come across as confident, authoritative and understandable to everyone in the audience, even people outside the engineering profession? 

  In this Public Speaking for Engineering course, you will learn the following: 

  * How to make complex engineering subjects understandable and memorable 

  * How to avoid the most common public speaking blunders made by engineers 

  * How to use PowerPoint effectively 

  * How to speak to non-engineering audiences 

*How to be confident and commanding at all aspects of Public Speaking

This Public Speaking course is delivered primarily through spoken lectures. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking. 

The Public Speaking skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right. 

This Public Speaking course contains numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library. 

TJ Walker has been coaching and training people on their Public Speaking skills for 30 years. Now, through the power of Udemy's online platform, he is able to give you the same high quality training that he gives in person to CEOs, Fortune 500 executives, and Presidents of countries. Only you can now receive the training at a tiny fraction of the normal fee for in-person training. 

How long this Public Speaking course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life. 

 You can begin improving your Public Speaking skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your presentation skills are not up to high standards. Please enroll today.

I took the course because I just can't get public speaking right no matter what I do! I hope to learn the right way of doing it. Hopefully at the end of the session I'll be more confident about public speaking.

Overall the course was quite good. I do think it would be helpful to provide some examples of good presentations versus "boring data dumps."

As an engineer, who has a shy personality and has some problems while talking in public, this course has widened my world. Most of the tricks are seem like obvious but, it is important to know how to use and combine them and this course helped me to learn that. I will try to focus on and try to do what I learned here in my next first public speaking. Thank you for creating such a course, it was one of the most effective course I have ever taken and I will try to share it with my engineer friends like me!

The course transformed my personality to become interesting and engaging person. Without it wouldn't be able to have any memorable conversations in personal life. The course title need paraphrasing to become more visible.

Enrolling in this course, I hopped to get some knowledge about preparing technical presentations - presentations that contain a lot of data. Maybe some ways or techniques of organizing the data; better strategies for communicating engineering ideas... Nope! Nothing for engineers! Just common words.

Yes.For an engineer,too shy not to speak in public place.Roles converted can bring more chances to them if go out of silence.

So far in Section 1, everything went fine and the materials are all understandable. The short duration of the videos made it easier and more enjoyable to understand the contents while watching and hearing them.

TJ is an incredibly polished speaker who presents his content, as far as I can tell, in perfect accordance with the lessons he's teaching. He has a very matter-of-fact form of confidence, the kind that can only come from long experience with a topic, and that true confidence is refreshing to hear in a world full of loudmouths. Lastly, I am amazed with the amount of content he has made available to us in this class. Taken together, I get the sense that TJ is someone who loves helping people overcome their communication challenges with his finely honed skill. I once worked for a physical therapist who treated anyone who needed help for just 30$ per hour, no questions asked. She just wanted to make injured people well again. That generosity is what this class reminds me of. Unfortunately, I really don't agree with the hard-line nature of TJ's premises. Taken at face value, I'm afraid much of this content is incompatible with my job. I take particular exception to the idea that there are no purely technical presentations, and that everything must be presented in a persuasive lecture format. My main speaking engagements, for example, are design reviews. During these, I have to show my design to a panel of customers and, critically, I have to show detailed images and data proving that we (the engineering firm) fulfilled every specification and action item. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss the design, voice any new concerns, and make a decision to "go" or "no-go" with the project. Whether the presentation covered every topic in the time slot (usually 1 hour) and resulted in a pass is more important than whether it was a memorable or persuasive call to action. The most efficient way to handle these proceedings is to have a clearly visible agenda and show the data to be discussed. The town-hall format means that if you don't show your facts, the customer is going to stop you and ask for them. Remember that the goal is to make a decision in the meeting. They won't be content to hear that a companion text will be available afterwards, and that they're being asked to make a decision now without data. To bring this all back to why TJ's lessons are sadly difficult to apply here, the above circumstances mean that I owe my audience slides with text, and it often means discussing more than five points in one sitting. I can't imagine being able to address these items in the form of a story. I feel that the example above is a legitimate presentation format, and in my own engineering career, it has been the norm. If nothing else, its the standard in my industry to review specifications with the customer in this manner, and a requirement of my job. I am disappointed to see this kind of presentation dismissed as wrong and to only receive instruction in lecturing, a task rarely given to junior engineers like myself. It just would have been nice to see meetings and other gatherings understood as speaking engagements in their own right, and to have lessons that acknowledge those more ad-hoc circumstances. These design reviews are often challenging experiences, and I can only imagine that I'm not the first engineer to look for help with speech training, like this very class, because I want to navigate them better. To improve the tone a little bit, I want to reiterate that what TJ teaches, he teaches incredibly well, and I can't deny that this course will help me in other settings such as job interviews. I also believe that there are some oblique ways I can still apply his teachings about speaking effectively to improve how my handling of these data-intensive design reviews. In closing, I would like to thank and commend TJ for his work.

The course points out clearly and in a great way what are the most important things to deliver a great presentation. It's also rich of stories, and TJ surely knows how to keep your attention high, but I just feel like it misses examples. In particular if you think about PowerPoint, where examples of "good" and "bad" slides would have been helpful. I would also have liked some more insights about the voice tone, how to modulate it to not sound boring, when to raise it, when to keep it low, what to do if you start stuttering, and maybe some other suggestions for people that have to deliver presentations in a language that is not your mother-tongue.

This training has important information, but also there is a lot of bias about what is a "regular engineer". I did not feel enough empathy from the Trainer.
May 18, 2022
I like it was specifically done for engineers, as it clearly focus on the weaknesses of this group of professionals and help to improve to be better at public speaking.
February 20, 2022
I am an engineer and was just promoted to a supervisory role. This position will require lots of communication skills. I am therefore hoping to enhance my skills in communications with regards to my job
January 28, 2022
Great content. Strong reinforcement of central messages...not more than 5 major points, images over text, stories and video practice.
December 30, 2021
Left some feedback in the Q&A. Examples would be great to watch and analyze. All of us need examples to follow to get better at stuff. Great course.
