PUBLIC SPEAKING 101: HOME

INTRODUCTION

Study after study has indicated that Public Speaking is the number one fear in America- over death!  Fear of public speaking is so prevalent in fact that Jerry Seinfield famously joked that Americans would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy! No matter how you look at it, Public Speaking has proven definitively that if you are proficient- it will lead to many more open doors in ANY career than if you are not.  And in fact, with 86% of executives stating that "good public speaking and communication have a direct impact on a person's career", I would assert that it is THE MOST IMPORTANT CLASS YOU WILL TAKE outside of your major IN YOUR ENTIRE ACADEMIC CAREER.  These guides will help you sort through the weeds of public speaking and give you valuable resources that will embolden you in your presentation skills.  Enjoy!
