Odyssey: Speak Up

Everyone can learn to speak clearly, confidently, and comfortably in public. Do you find the prospect of delivering a speech in front of a group scary? You're not alone! Everyone from Sigmund Freud and Mark Twain to Warren Buffett and Julia Roberts suffered from "glossophobia." But public speaking can be fun—and a great asset, whether applying for a job, career advancement, or just making a toast. We will study famous speeches, learn how to do introductions, conduct question-and-answer sessions, and speak for broadcast. Guest speakers include a speech coach and a voice-over artist. A trip to a radio station will give participants a chance to experience working in a studio. The course will culminate with the preparation and presentation of a short speech.
