PUBLIC SPEAKING – AN INTRODUCTION

Breathing, articulation, enunciation, projection, relaxation, posture, content, presence, audience…so much to remember! Many things can go wrong while speaking, not to mention the feeling of ‘I’m scared stiff.’ Bring along a presentation you have been working on or let the instructor encourage you to use some material he will have available. Who knew public speaking was FUN! For information about the instructor, please visit www.jwalkguelph.blogspot.com.
