Do you lack confidence as a speaker? Have you struggled through presentations in your classes?  This workshop is for you.

We will meet for 3 two-hour sessions to explore the features of a great oral presentation, as well as the physiology and kinetics of confidence.  Throughout the workshop, we’ll examine ways to make public speaking, on any topic, easier and more natural. The workshop will include instruction, group exercises, homework (just a little!) practice, and individual coaching, culminating in one or more brief presentations. The emphasis will be on crafting a talk, developing strategies for both remembering what to say and making the ideas memorable for the audience, and delivering the talk with confidence.  Note: This workshop will not include designing or using slides.

We will meet in E39-335, 10:00 a.m.-noon each day
