Public Speaking from Power Center

Public Speaking from Power Center invites students to find their unique voice. An exploration of practical exercises and story-telling techniques will support their ability to speak to an audience and deliver engaging presentations with confidence. Practices that allow them to shift from fear and anxiety to a calmer, grounded presence will also be taught. Students will be introduced to the tools that make great public speakers, as well as how to structure a persuasive talk. A final project will provide the opportunity to apply the knowledge, skills, and techniques learned to generate a deeper level of learning.
