About this Course

Communication Skills are the most important personal skills you can ever develop for your success in life. Life is a series of communications. Those who develop strong communication skills do well in school, secure jobs and promotions and often ascend to the highest levels of leadership in corporations, governments and civic life. People who fail to develop communication skills often have their careers stagnate or plateau in the mid-range. Sadly, presentation skills are either not taught in primary or secondary education or are taught poorly.

The Complete Communication Skills Masterclass for Life course is your way to get a Master's level education on how to communicate effectively.

This course is designed to be a one-stop shop for all your communication skills training needs. This course covers a vast array of communication needs and scenarios, from how to communicate during a job interview, pitching investors, asking for a raise, speaking one on one or to large groups. And it covers how to speak to big corporations when you have a problem with service, plus public speaking for kids, how to deliver a wedding speech and even a eulogy. You will also become a master of persuasion, assertiveness and all aspects of business communication. Your leadership abilities will expand dramatically as your social skills grow to allow you to communicate effectively in every situation.

This course has the following:

  • More lectures on communication skills than any other course on Simpliv, by far.
  • More hours of communication skills training than any other course (27 hours long. Sometimes More is More!)
  • More in-depth training techniques than any other course.

"I've devoted the last 30 years of my life conducting live, in-person communication skills to Presidents, Prime Ministers, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Senators, Nobel Peace Prize Winners and Professional Athletes. Now, I'm excited to bring to you these same insider secrets that will transform you into an excellent presenter. If you take this course and do a few simple homework assignments, I am absolutely convinced I can make your communication skills world class. You WILL be able to do the following in EVERY Presentation:

  • Look comfortable, confident and relaxed, regardless of whether you are sitting or standing, regardless of audience size.
  • Communicate so your audience understands you.
  • Communicate so your audience remembers your messages (this is the hardest part).
  • Influence people to take the actions you want." TJ Walker, President of Media Training Worldwide and best-selling Simpliv Instructor.

“TJ Walker's single-minded devotion to presentation has made him the #1 expert for executives seeking guidance on speaking to the public and media." Bob Bowdon, Anchor/Reporter, Bloomberg Television

“TJ Walker is the leading media trainer in the world." Stu Miller, Viacom News Producer

His book, "Secret to Foolproof Presentations" was a USA Today # 1 Bestseller, as well as a Wall Street Journal, and Business Week Bestseller.
