Communicating with Confidence is about you and how you behave and produce the spoken word. It really is important that you do practice, practice and do some more practice. Each time you practice you will only get better. Learning this skill is like learning to ride a horse. You may struggle initially and it may just seem too hard but the more you practice, get your coordination right, get your posture sorted, know how to use your voice and increase your confidence, slowly but surely it will feel natural.
There will be a number of exercises to do. Some will be about you and your life journey, another maybe a topic you like or a topic you do not like, so be prepared. There is no fixed time for how long this course will take. Work at a pace that suits you. The longest and hardest parts are preparing your content, getting ready to video yourself, doing the video, watching back, writing down what went well and what could have been done better and then doing it again.
