Learn to speak well in public, persuade and protect from manipulations.
I appreciate the realistic and relatable examples which accompanied the theory. This course struck the perfect balance of theory/practice application for me. I appreciate the individual feedback and Fatos was a fantastic teacher. Very knowledgeable. I will keep my eyes open for other AIR courses and will highly recommend!
I have attended many courses in public speaking & presenting. However, I found this course unique & well prepared. As a result, I started to help my friends with such skills. I would like to thank you for this effective course.

Virtual Classroom Course Information - VAT-free: Live tutoring brings all the benefits of face to face training and, in addition, improves skills for ‘digital’ participation.

Meetings, interviews, presentations and conferences are increasingly opting for participation and contribution via digital platforms. Courts have introduced video-advocacy and judging. Consulting, counselling, advertising, sales, and client support of all kinds are all moving to digital formats. Large events and conferences are conducted via videoconferencing. Therefore, ‘digital’ participation, and therefore skills for online delivery of Public Speaking, are becoming an essential skill of the 21st century.
