Speaking Confidently and Effectively

I recommend this course as it has allowed me to develop myself not only career-wise but also in everyday life. I feel more confident with public speaking and better able to articulate my ideas. I have found it useful to keep returning back to and look forward to exploring more courses to help me grow personally, academically and professionally.

How to Speak So People Want to Listen 

This course is great for anyone with upcoming presentations or even for developing skills for future employment. It allows you to increase your confidence and delves deeper into how to keep your target audience entertained and interested throughout your conversation or presentation. The great thing about LinkedIn Learning is that you can complete the courses at your own pace from the comfort of your own home.

Critical Thinking

I’m here today to talk about a course on LinkedIn Learning I think you will find beneficial for completing your assessments. It’s called ‘Critical Thinking’, and while it’s from a business perspective, when the tutor talks about the problem you can replace that with the word assessment. It gives really good tips on how to structure an argument, so I highly recommend it to support your academic journey – good luck!

Nano Tips for Presenting with Confidence

During your time at university there’s a good chance you’ll be asked to present your ideas rather than write an essay about them. For most people, including myself, this can be really daunting, but there are resources available to help you present with confidence. With LinkedIn Learning, you can access a range of courses to help boost your presentation skills. Personally, I like this one because it delivers bite-sized tips for improving every aspect of your delivery in a clear, direct way.

We hope these recommendations have inspired you to take the courses or even browse the LinkedIn Learning catalogue yourself! The new year is the perfect time to broaden your horizons by reflecting on your existing skills and those you might like to develop.

Plus, once you’ve completed a course, you can even add a badge to your LinkedIn profile. This is a fantastic way to stand out to future potential employers and keep track of your progress.
