    This course presents the conceptual and practical dimensions of formal presentations in organizational settings.  We will examine analysis, adaptation, strategic arrangement, development of ideas, and verbal and nonverbal presentation skills.  This course is designed to build a solid understanding of the fundamentals of public presentations, as well as the ability to employ those skills flexibly so that a speaker can adjust selected topics and tactics to specific audiences. This is a college course offered through Syracuse University, and students choosing to pay the (discounted) fee will also earn college credit, and will receive an official Syracuse University transcript.
