Today’s youth are growing up in an increasingly fast-paced and ever-changing world. In order for future business leaders and entrepreneurs to effectively lead in the global business environment, the ability to confidently speak in public and communicate professionally are essential business skills. Capitol Debate’s Virtual Business Communication camp provides students with effective business presentation techniques such as convincing different audiences (business partners, board members, investors, prospective clients), developing business plans, and structuring clear and concise presentations. The week will wrap up with Shark Tank style presentations where students will present their unique business ideas and persuade their peers and instructors of the real-world viability of their business or product.
You video chat people so you can see your instructor. You can see how they are interacting with you. It's like a face to face interaction just over the web.
Like most parents, I was skeptical about how interactive this medium would be. But I do see that it has brought a tremendous amount of positive change to my son's life.
My son loves it; he enjoys it; he gets a lot out of it. I've seen him grow in his character and his confidence.
They have excellent teachers, and they have an excellent staff who are really are invested in the growth of these kids.
It's taught me to be so much of a better debater. You can do practice debates online; you can do speeches online; you can do anything you would normally do at a debate practice online.
These online classes have met and exceeded my expectations. I was a bit hesitant because I come from a generation where we meet in the classroom, and we drive and get together. But the kids are so collaborative online, I don't think they are missing a beat.
