This Presentation Skills Learning Path will help first-time speakers feel confident and secure giving talks in public and at work to peers. Seasoned speakers will learn new tips, tricks, and how to be more effective presenting a persuading talk. But public speaking is often more than just presenting topics, it’s detailing an opinion (buy my product or fund my idea), so creating a persuasive pitch is critical. This Learning Path is for anyone who presents ideas and content often, both internally and externally to your company, who wants to become a better and more influential speaker.
Forget everything you've heard about eye-contact, body language, and voice - it's likely either old-school, or just plain wrong. Now, in these very entertaining, knowledge-packed 90 minutes, you will see and hear for yourself what has been imprisoning the excellent presenter inside you. You will learn how to finally break free of the common chains that have ensnarled speakers and presenters for generations.

There are three components in an ice dance competition: the compulsory dances ("CD"), original dance ("OD"), and the free dance ("FD"). The free dance is the most heavily weighted in the scoring and is used as a tiebreaker. In the free dance, teams are free to choose their own rhythms, program themes, and therefore music. Creativity is also strongly encouraged. The hand holds and positions are much more open and free than in the compulsory and original dance categories. Often teams strive to skate in difficult or unusual positions to gain difficulty points.Wikipedia
