Organizing, Supporting, and Time Limits: The Bottom Line of Effective Public Speaking



 

Most employers believe that public speaking is the most important skill for students and employees. This workshop will cover how organizing your thoughts, supporting your contentions, and sticking to time limits will help your audience perceive you as a competent speaker. That will help them understand your proposals and be more likely to accept your contentions. These techniques are most important for students in the sciences and engineering whose projects are highly technical and often presented to non science and engineering audiences.
