In this conversation, TJ talks about his new Udemy course, Complete Presentation Skills Masterclass for Every Occasion.
Geetesh: TJ, you just introduced your new course on Udemy called Complete Presentation Skills Masterclass for Every Occasion. Who can benefit from this course?
TJ: This is a monster 27.5-hour video-based course designed to cover all aspects of public speaking and delivering presentations. Students can pick and choose what is most relevant to them, so there are sections for beginners, those who have fear of presenting as well as aspiring professional speakers and those wanting to prepare a TED Talk. The course is also designed for serious professionals in the communication space who are interested in how a high-level presentation training business is run and about my experiences training world leaders from six continents over the last 30 years. If someone wants personalized feedback and critiques on their presentation skills, all they have to do is post video of themselves speaking into the course. I personally critique every presentation posted. So this is a hands-on training experience, not just a passive sit-back-and casually-watch-videos-while-checking-Facebook-experience.
Geetesh: Tell us about the special offer you are providing to Indezine readers, and is this really free? Do you want something from them?
TJ: Lifteime access to the course is normally a one-time fee of $199.00. There is NO charge for Indezine readers if they use the link provided here, and use the coupon code GEETESH
Indezine readers are an influential group of presentation professionals. I am offering the course free of charge to any of your readers. This is a lifetime offer, and there will never be a charge and they do not have to give a credit card to receive access to the entire course.
I do want something from the Indezine readers. I want their mind space. I want their thoughts and perspectives on what they like about the course and also want they would like to see changed or improved. And I would like solid, thoughtful reviews of my course. The course has just soft-launched this week, so thoughtful, series reviews from Indezine readers are worth their weight in gold from a long=term perspective for this course.
