Terrified of speaking in front or groups of people? Of course you are. Everybody is! In this course you will get acquainted with yourself as a speaker. We will focus on practical presentation strategies and how to get over yourself so that you can sell whatever it is you want to sell or talk about. All in front of a group of people. We will discuss general speech-giving but also address speech-specifics of training, presentations, sales, persuasion, and homiletics. Topics to be covered: Putting your speech together, knowing your audience, how to prove what you're saying with more than just your own flapping gums, visual aides that help, and shaking off that wicked case of heebie jeebies! Instructor: Andrew Douglas, MA Speech Communication, Instructor at Washtenaw and Wayne County Community Colleges
