Public Speaking Workshop
About this Event
Meets: Monday and Wednesday
Dates: January 13 and January 15
Format: Zoom Classroom
Instructor: Dayle Ohlau
“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” – Comedian Jerry Seinfeld
Professional public speaking is not a death wish! We’re going to keep you out of the box and brighten the skills you didn’t even know you already have in this two-day introductory course to Professional Public Speaking.
Research indicates that oral communication skills are the number one factor in employment success, beyond self-motivation, problem-solving, decision-making, and leadership skills. This class will help you strengthen your ability to communicate effectively in a professional environment. The instructor, Dayle Ohlau, has taught various college-level communication classes and formerly hosted and produced radio programs in southern California, as well as a CBS-TV news program in Northern Michigan. For this course she will focus on verbal, non-verbal, and listening communication skills with an emphasis on interpersonal and small-group dynamics.
Required: Computer with a microphone and the ability to download the zoom add-on to a PC, tablet, or phone.
[A full class will be offered in February.]
