Effective communication allows a person to influence decisions, motivate changes and form relationships. Public speaking can be a gateway to success, but also one of the most feared activities. With guidance and practice, anyone can overcome this fear and join the ranks of leaders – those who can harness the power of words.
This class will give students the opportunity to practice and master the art of public speaking. We will write and deliver various types of speeches as well as practice voice control, body language and use of visual aids.
