Did you know that a majority of Americans have glossophobia, or a fear of public speaking, in some form or another? The ability to speak effectively to groups of people is a hallmark of successful leaders. Whether addressing students in a class, members of a team, colleagues at work, prospective clients, or voting constituents, the ability to speak persuasively will set you apart from others for the rest of your life. This course is designed to help students gain confidence speaking in public, learn and understand the persuasive process, and learn the art of connecting with others when speaking in public. Students who take this class will leave with the confidence to excel whenever they have to inform, persuade, or entertain others with a speech or presentation.
