Champion of public speaking Alyson Connolly takes you step by step through the process of conceiving, crafting, and delivering a high-impact presentation. You'll discover how to overcome your nerves, engage your audience, and convey gravitas–all while getting your message across clearly and concisely.

Hi, I’m Alyson Connolly.


I'm a public speaking coach and an expert in helping people overcome the anxiety of public presentations. I work with clients who are good but want to improve and those whose accents impedes their clarity. I have built my career consulting with top executives as well as up and coming businesses trying to build their brand.

I received a Masters in Theatre Voice Pedagogy from the University of Alberta. My thesis was on “Alleviating Performance Anxiety in Public Presenters”.

I designed this course as an accessible method of learning about public speaking, based on my book "Public Speaking Skills for dummies". Each video gets quickly to the heart of the subject and guides you through ways to improve your presentation skills.

I hope you enjoy it!


This course is closed for enrollment.
