Course Description

Many people find public speaking scary and intimidating.  In fact many sources have named it the second most reported fear after the fear of death.  And yet the truth is that public speaking is a skill that can be learned just like any other skill.  Have you ever wondered how your work or social life could change if you could speak more easily in public? 

Everyone has a unique voice and not using that voice means that you and the people in your world are missing out on your contribution.  Society is best served when you discover your voice and learn how to get your unique message across.  Whether you are speaking to one person or to a crowd; doing a presentation or sales pitch; whether you are in a work or social setting, speaking in public is a necessary part of many people’s lives.  Speak with Ease – how to find your voice and get your message across will show you how to do it well in simple, effective steps.
