Who is the presenter?

Eduard de Kock is an excellent presenter, interpreter, teacher, and facilitator of communication courses. To boot he is an experienced master of ceremonies and a freelance news anchor and reporter for Eyewitness News.

Who should attend and what are the career benefits?

If you would like to present with confidence and convey a clear message – whether it be to a large audience, or during one-on-one interviews – then this course is for you!

To ensure optimal learning, we limit the number of participants. The live sessions are complemented by online learning, and all aspects of the course are assessed.

Any prerequisites?

You will need a computer and a reliable web browser to access learning material on SUNOnline. You should be familiar with creating electronic documents.

Where and when will this short course take place?

Our hybrid courses combine face-to-face sessions, which are facilitated by the course presenter, with self-directed online learning.

Courses open before the face-to-face sessions and close well after the last face-to-face session. This allows enough time for you to activate your SUNOnline presence before the first face-to-face session takes place.

This intimate two-day course will take place in the Seminar Room of the Language Centre, Kleine Bosch, 44 Banhoek Road, Stellenbosch. Contact sessions will be held from 09:00 to 16:00 on the following dates:
