Utilize video presentations in front of live audiences that can be reviewed by presenter for self
criticism and audience criticism. My students varied from automotive executives to product
specialists who needed to professionally present demonstrations promoting the new features
of automotive products to out shine the competition. Second tries at presentation was the
always the standard for improving performance.
After graduating from college I substitute taught for a short time but soon gravitated to the auto industry where my teaching skills found its base. The auto companies needed young college educated product specialists to present product information to the public. I developed a public speaking course which covered all the basic skills of this trade. My courses where done with audio/visual equipment
which prompted students to learn conversational presentations that were fluent and required correct enunciation, attention to
pacing and effective gestures to support the presentations when
necessary. All course instruction was recorded on video and reviewed with students as they developed technique and style.
A guide to creating good habits for public speaking required study
of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.
My approach to developing a staff of presenters began with
approximately 20 presenters. Within three years there
were more than 80 certified presenters hired by Ford Motor Company. I highly recommend this course for high school
students who anticipate careers where public speaking will become
a valued asset in their soon to be careers.
