Who is this class for: This course is geared toward practicing engineers who are early in their careers, especially those who are either in or approaching their first leadership role. This is what some of the past students said when asked: "What is the most useful thing you could gain from this course?": "Communication methods for engineering leaders. It's a rare and comprehensive course, I think not absolutely for this specific field, as I found many interesting points concerning presentation without being an engineer." "Powerful concepts on how to build persuasive communication." "Improving interactions through effective communication." "Confidence"

Five weeks ago, I wouldn't think about recording myself presenting. To be honest, I would look for any excuse to get away from it. This course pushed me in the right direction, I learned a lot and ended up with 10+ videos presenting different topics.

Thanks for this class. It effectively delivers the basic and important details about oral communication. Both the slides and the content are well organized. Thanks !
