Public Speaking is not something most engineers are naturally good at, but it can be a learned skill. Imagine delivering a speech to a group of engineers and non-engineers alike, and everyone is following you closely and understanding your message. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can deliver a presentation on an engineering topic and come across as confident, authoritative and understandable to everyone in the audience, even people outside the engineering profession? 

  In this Public Speaking for Engineering course, you will learn the following: 

  *How to make complex engineering subjects understandable and memorable 

  *How to avoid the most common public speaking blunders make by engineers 

  *How to use PowerPoint effectively 

  *How to speak to non-engineering audiences 

*How to be confident and commanding at all aspects of Public Speaking

  This Public Speaking course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking. 

  The Public Speaking skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right. 

  This Public Speaking course contains numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library. 

  TJ Walker has been coaching and training people on their Public Speaking skills for 30 years. Now, through the power of Udemy's online platform, he is able to give you the same high quality training that he gives in person to CEOs, Fortune 500 executives, and Presidents of countries. Only you can now receive the training at a tiny fraction of the normal fee for in-person training. 

  How long this Public Speaking course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life. 

  You can begin improving your Public Speaking skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your presentation skills are not up to high standards. Please enroll today.

Keep reading to meet her!

WHY OUR LEVEL 2 GRADUATES EXCEL

Students: 6831, Price:  Paid

What is the aim of this course?   

Retail has become very competitive. We have the rise of e-commerce and multichannel, buyers behavior change drastically. This leads to lower margins. As a Business Analyst or Management Consultant you have to be able to analyze the Retailer you work for fast and find possible improvements. This course will help you drastically improve your knowledge and skills in optimizing Retail business through a series of practical cases. It is designed for people who want to become consultants, business analysts or have to run and optimize Retail business on a daily bases. In the course you will learn 6 things:   

  1. How to analyze Retailer and find low hanging fruits   

  2. How to build business model of the Retailer in Excel in order to see the big picture and see how specific KPIs impact the profit   

  3. How to optimize Retailers operations   

  4. How to behave in a multichannel surrounding (when you have also e-commerce operations)   

  5. How to expand your business into new categories and markets   

  6. How to analyze in-store engagements   

There will be also many growth hacks that Retailers use.   

The course is based on my 14 years of experience in Retail as well as a consultant in top consulting companies and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, improvement and turn-arounds in biggest companies from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B sector that I worked for. I worked for retailers in home improvements, pharmaceuticals, vending, kids-products, convenience stores, electronics, wood products and many more so what you will see in this course are observation drawn from many industries.  On the basis of what you will find in this course I have trained over 100 consultants, business analysts and managers who now are CEO, Operational  Directors, COO, Investment Directors, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members, Customer Insight Managers, Data Science Managers etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy have already been taken by more than 45 000 students. The course you will take has been taken also by people from EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Dell, Walgreens and many more as a part of Udemy for Business.

I teach through cases so most of the lectures are case studies showing some business problems solved in Excel. There will be also overview of main techniques used in optimizing and running retail. To every lecture you will find attached  (in additional resources) the Excels shown in the lecture so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modification, be applied by you in your work.

 

Why I decided to create this course?   

Retail has become quite complex and there is a shortage of business analysts and consultants that have a good understanding about how to approach retail. There is a lack of knowledge how to get a broader view of the retail business and at the same time to be able to go deep into details. Even people working for years in retail have problems with seeing the whole picture and being able to find potential savings. Therefore, I have decided to create a course that will bridge this gap. This course will transform you into retail expert in a relatively short time and help you see all the elements of the business. The approach you will see in this course was tested on humans and I have seen tremendous positive results. Thanks to this course youu will become a priceless member of any team that is doing strategic and operational improvements projects in retail. It will help you land a job not only with retailers but also consulting firms, private equities investing in retail.   

To sum it up, I believe that if you want to build or to find improvements in retail you should master techniques shown in this course. That is why I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analyst that have to advice their customer but also to retail managers, analysts already working in retail or in PE.   

In what way will you benefit from this course?   

The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of analyses, tricks, hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you find and analyze production. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will know:   

  1. How to analyze Retailer and find low hanging fruits   

  2. How to build business model of the Retailer in Excel in order to see the big picture and see how specific KPIs impact the profit   

  3. How to optimize Retailers operations   

  4. How to behave in a multichannel surrounding (when you have also e-commerce operations)   

  5. How to expand your business into new categories and markets   

  6. How to analyze in-store engagements   

You can also ask me any question either through the discussion mode or by messaging me directly.

  • Introduction. We begin with little intro into the course as well as some general info on retail

Retail buying and merchandising is a very exciting field that looks at how retail enterprises go about planning the buying and selling of the right products, at the right place, right time, in the correct quantities, to the correct customer and at the correct price.

However, it isn't an easy topic to get your head around and that's largely due to the fact that the subject matter is littered with specialised terminology, concepts, jargon, acronyms, etc. For individuals who are new to the field it can be quite daunting to understand what these concepts mean, let alone getting a full picture of how everything ties in together to realise the complex clockwork of the buying and merchandising cycle.

This beginner course in retail buying and merchandising is quite special - special in the sense that it isn't your regular textbook or mishmash of explanations and it doesn't make assumptions on prior knowledge. This means that you'll be able to connect with the concepts regardless of your educational or professional background.

Furthermore, the course decomposes the topic into a number of fundamental but interrelated perspectives that describe the subject matter in a logical way. These perspectives define the course structure and also allow the discussion of useful examples taking into account the real-life industry aspects.

The course comprises of a range of audio-visual lectures with exercises towards the end of each relevant section to test your understanding of the topic.

So, are you ready to go from newcomer to all-rounder in retail buying and merchandising? You've stopped at the right course that's going to fast track your learning in record time!

Life Coach Training Specializing in Personal Development for the New Normal

In 2021, Pew Research Center conducted a post-pandemic survey bringing together top experts. They asked them to describe the new normal and outline the skills required to succeed. Responding, they used terms such as “massive disruption”. They see a "world of technology" and fear that human’s “paleolithic emotions” will create further inequality between the haves and have-nots in our society.

Change disrupts the status quo! Some change happens slowly while other change creates chaos and confusion. The more personally developed a person is, the better they can adapt and use change as the building-blocks toward new found success in every area of their life.

Yes, technological change is inevitable but people can develop an empowered personal approach to embracing advancement. In this course, I personally train you to use my proprietary Empowerment Coaching Models so that you can guide yourself and/or clients to discover untapped personal potential.

“After completing the course successfully. I began applying Louise methods with my coaching methods and it delivered tremendous results. In the past, I had only coached adults but with Louise methods I was able to coach kids and youths likewise. Her mode of teaching & technique is easy to follow and apply. She has a way of igniting new or hidden ideas and skills you never knew existed. I would recommend this coaching course and other teaching materials from the empowerment academy to people who desire to develop themselves in various coaching field”


“I am learning how to piece together the "puzzle" of life that most people live through. I'm also learning to understand myself more. I'm glad I took a chance on me to get out of my box and my need to be "perfect" and to just start”

“After taking all 10 courses from Louise and working with 10+ clients and 150-200 hours of coaching during a period of 1 year, I find this master life coaching course amazing! The feedback from my clients was 100% satisfaction. The tools from the guidelines (extended with my own) are working very well and fit most scenarios. The quotes are spot on! If this review sounds too good to be true, well...it's still a real review, based on the feedback from my clients. Of course, your experience will depend on your previous knowledge, your clients, and how you apply the tools and learnings. You'll have to do a lot of learning and experiencing yourself, however, it is completely worth your effort. I grew and learned a lot about myself as well as many new things from my clients: self-limiting beliefs, social dynamics in romantic or work relationships, mindset, patterns that we learn in our childhood and follow later. I'm grateful to be learning with Louise! Thank you a million times”

“I've been practicing coaching for a couple of years based on my education and experience. I realize to take it to the next level. I needed a life coaching certification to legitimize my practice. This course is providing everything I need, and I now realize there is a structure name for some activities that I have practiced with my group coaching clients and just did not know it!

This course is an introduction to electrical controls with an emphasis on motor controls in the real world.

In this course, we focus on industrial and commercial installations, we will start with the absolute basics of electrical circuits. We look at the fundamentals of resistive circuits, and introduce Ohms Law, a mathematical formula that all electricians learn. The course looks at the different types of voltages and where they come from in the real world, focussing on transformer formations from the power supply authority, and AC and DC Voltages. As this is a course on the fundamentals of electrical controls, we will go through the basics of control circuits such as, normally open and normally closed, and look at how controls are made up of series and parallel circuits.

Taking a more practical approach to the subject, we dive inside control panels and look at each electrical component that we will be using later in the course, in our own motor control installation. We look inside the parts in detail and see how they work, discuss ratings, and learn how to size them up, with a particular focus on contactors and overloads. We also simplify an explanation of how an asynchronous motor works.

Before we get to wiring up our own control circuit, we look at the different types of control voltages in the real world and follow them  from end device at the customers installation all the way back to the supply transformer at the power company, so we can see how a full installation might look, and get an insight into different systems that we might find in industry.

After learning the basics, we look at how we would install a motor control installation from scratch, including the motor itself. We get to see all the parts that we have learned about, working together in a mock real world installation, we learn how to size up the components and then go through the wiring of the circuit step by step. Part of installing a control board is commissioning it, so we go through the operation of the circuit after we have installed it to make sure it works. 

Installations are often amended and modified in the real world, so we'll look at a few ways in which we could modify our mock installation, change our wiring around and re-commission the installation. 

At the end of the course, we're going to challenge ourselves, and learn how to fault find a circuit as we would if we were called to a breakdown as an electrical controls technician. We'll go through a few faults that we might come up against in the industry and look at how we might repair them. We also briefly touch on preventative maintenance techniques and discuss why they are important, for safety reasons and also financial reasons too.

Controls can be quite daunting and complicated, we will go through slowly and steadily, learning each part of the installation in detail before putting it all together, the course is weighted towards learning from practical examples, perfect for those of us that are visual learners. And, instead of enforcing hard and fast rules of how things must be done, We focus more on learning how to break down circuits and understand them for ourselves.  I will show you wiring techniques used by Controls Electricians in the real world.

What is covered in the course:

  • Learn the fundamentals: AC and DC voltages, 3 phase voltages, resistive circuits, ohms law, normally open and normally closed, series and parallel circuits, supply transformers (star & delta), faults to earth.
  • Electrical components: Control panels, isolating switches, circuit breakers, fuses, contactors, overloads, asynchronous motors, push buttons, indicator lights, power supplies.
  • Types of installations: Single phase, dual phase, power supply, mixed voltage control.
  • Installation of a motor control circuit: Install electrical components, wiring of a mock installation, commission installation.
  • Modifying an installation: Add and remove components, wire a hold in circuit, commission.
  • Fault finding and maintenance: Fault find and repair, use a multimeter, preventative maintenance.
