Online Public Speaking program - Batch 2 - April 2020
Nothing in life is more important than the ability to communicate effectively - Gerald R. Ford
As the entire nation went into Lockdown frenzy, students of Nirmiti Academy devoted their time and intent to carve out a niche for themselves. To speak on stage or in Public confidently has always been a challenge to many school students. As the entire school curriculum majorly focuses on academic scores, they have little scope to provide opportunities to each child and give an edge over others to cultivate confidence and speaking skills. Public Speaking is an art that gets cultivated and honed with detailing, practice and usage of certain tools and techniques. With Lockdown 2.0 being in continuance, students can not only kill boredom but also utilise their time in acquiring Public Speaking skills. After successfully rolling out 1st batch of Online Public Speaking course and receiving tremendous and positive response from parents and students, Nirmiti Academy kickstarted its 2nd Online Public Speaking program for school students from grade 06 to grade 11 in mid April 2020.
This course largely focusses on equipping oneself with essential tips and techniques on how to become a better speaker on stage and in any public setting. We aim to help students to reach to a level where they can be self-confident and better advance their self-esteem.
