Xelerate Learning / Products / Elearning Courses / Public Speaking

Many people experience fear at the idea of having to stand in front of large audiences and talk. Some speakers can become debilitated by thoughts of what to say, how to keep the audience’s interest, and how to calm their nerves. Much of the anxiety associated with public speaking can be minimized through techniques to manage nerves and repetitive practice.

This ‘Become Better at Public Speaking’ Programme combines an online course and VR Conference Speaking Simulator.

Featuring a back-stage preparation area, conference stage and virtual audience, the VR simulator helps reduce anxiety and manage the stress of presenting in front of large groups of people by recreating the conditions of delivering a conference presentation. Throughout the simulation the presenter is scored on 4 key metrics volume, tone of voice, audience engagement (looking at the audience) and time taken, enabling them to reflect and improve upon their performance.

Techniques and practical exercises to minimise nerves, foster stage presence, use vocal dynamics to influence others and review and improve your performance are covered in the companion online learning course.
