Two – Session Public Speaking Workshop
Date(s) - 03/27/2013 - 04/01/2013
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Leadership Institute
If you’re like most people, speaking in public — whether to five or 500 people — can be an overwhelming and even frightening task. But it doesn’t need to be. Don’t let Americans’ most common fear — the fear of public speaking — keep you from advancing in your career.
America’s Future Foundation is partnering with the Leadership Institute for a Public Speaking Workshop on March 27 and April 1 where you can learn how to become a confident public speaker — and discover why speaking in public really isn’t that bad. The workshop includes instruction, course materials, and dinner. It’s going to be held at the Leadership Institute, less than one block from the Clarendon metro.
You’ll receive practical lessons, in-class exercises, and personalized feedback to make you a better, more confident public speaker. Specifically, you will learn how to:
Deliver speeches professionally
Overcome common fears about speaking in public
Organize and prepare effective speeches
Think on your feet in impromptu speeches
Your instructor will be Dr. John Shosky, a professional speechwriter, coach, and trainer for more than 28 years. He has written at least 2800 speeches, roughly seven million words, on the public record, and served in the Reagan, Bush (41), and Bush (43) presidential administrations.
