Flexible delivery options to meet your needs

Come learn on Brown’s campus in our new, state-of-the-art building located in the heart of Providence’s innovation district, at your corporate office, online or in a hybrid format.

The School of Professional Studies is integrated into Brown’s multi-nodal campus which, along with the surrounding city, is easy to navigate and accessible. The Providence airport is conveniently located — a quick 15-minute drive with easy in-and-out access and multiple flying options — and nearby hotel and accommodation for travelers are affordably priced. 

I have been making presentations for years, and I have taken several classes on presentation improvements. I found this class to be very effective with providing me real skills and techniques that I was able to employ right away to improve my presentations. While my objective was to improve my ability to make a persuasive presentation at work, I actually found it was very helpful when I needed to deliver a toast at my daughter's wedding. I received many compliments, not only on the words of the toast but on my delivery of that toast. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to improve their communication skills and become a more effective speaker.
