A few months ago I taught a Skillshare class. For those of you that don’t know what Skillshare is, it’s basically a community of teachers and students. You can learn anything from anyone anywhere. It’s an amazing community marketplace. From the moment I found out about Skillshare I was hooked.
Each summer they have a “semester” concentration. This summer was advertising. With many nudges from the good folks at Skillshare, I agreed to teach a Presentation Skills & Pitch Strategy class. This was my first Skillshare class I’d ever taught and I had so much fun. My students were amazing, the atmosphere was very laid back.
The class was fully booked and I had a lot of “watchers”. After much consideration, I’ve decided to re-open the class. Public Speaking is the #1 fear in Americans, even greater than death. That statistic always gets me, because it really isn’t so bad. I do understand why one may be afraid to speak in public, but when you give any fear a lot of energy it tends to grow into an uncontrollable monster. This was one of the reasons why I decided to re-open the class. I love learning new things and I love sharing things.
Now-a days tons of people have greats ideas and they need help expressing these ideas. I’m a big believer in project base learning, this class is very hands on. (Check out my blurb for Skillshare.) In an hour and a half you can learn the basic skills necessary to be a better presenter, as well as how to deliver a pitch.
