Presentation skills: Speechwriting and Storytelling

\"99% presentations suck!\", - said Apple former evangelist Guy Kawasaki in 2005. Up to now the situation hasn\'t improved yet. Why? Most public speaking courses focus on \"how\" instead of \"what & why\". How to stand, walk and talk during delivery with little attention paid to \"what\" - the quality of storytelling itself. Thereby a usual result is a looking slightly confident speaker with mesmerizing voice delivering an obscure mess of facts, figures and claims. In this course we take a more systematic approach, focusing on the content. How to structure your ideas, facts and data into a logical convincing story using a narrative structure. This course covers fundamentals of scriptwriting, packing, argumentation and language. This course is not about how to fabricate a catching tale, but rather how to structure your ideas, facts and data into an interesting story you are going to tell during your presentation.
