In the professional realm, we need to be able to argue without being argumentative. Whether you are fundraising for a nonprofit, pitching a business proposal, or suggesting a change to company policy, you are making arguments. In making the case for your topic, you often want to raise awareness, identify a pressing problem, discuss appropriate solutions, and outline specific steps for the audience.

TOP REVIEWS FROM SPEAKING TO PERSUADE: MOTIVATING AUDIENCES WITH SOLID ARGUMENTS AND MOVING LANGUAGE
A really exceptional course. I have done eulogies and ceremonial speeches before, but I always felt that I wasn't quite connecting with the theme. This course helped to complete the jigsaw. Thank you.
Great course! I highly recommend this if you're looking into improving your communication skills, especially communicating ideas.
i love the professor. He is great! I took all of his classes on coursera. I hope to meet him in person one day.
Great course with good structure, material and practices. Take good notes you will need them for your future speeches!
