H463: The Art of Public Speaking: how to persuade, motivate, and inspire. in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 25, 2015)
We've all been there. Stuck in a room listening to the guest speaker who doesn't know when to stop, the teacher who doesn't realize he isn't interesting, the principle who thinks she's hilarious but isn't. Few things in life are more excruciating than having to sit through a speech by a bad public speaker. So it's little wonder that Americans are more scared of public speaking than anything else (including flying, spiders, and flying spiders). But it doesn't have to be that way for you. Few things are more enjoyable or more thrilling than truly capturing a crowd's attention, not a single daydreamer or casual cellphone checker to be seen. Nothing beats listening to the silence so complete you could hear a pin drop as they hang on your every word. Or the roar of a standing ovation. This scenario is not just the stuff of idle fantasy. Public speaking is a skill that anyone can learn and refine, not an unattainable talent that other people are born with. So come! Join us for a magical hour during which the surprisingly simple secrets of public speaking will be revealed. No previous experience required.
