Public Speaking | Clark College Economic & Community Development

There is a lot to consider when presenting information—and your public speaking reach and influence heavily depends on your ability to communicate critical messages with confidence and clarity within various contexts. Let’s debunk the myth that some people are “natural born speakers,” born with some innate quality that others are not. 

So what’s the secret sauce? Come find out.


Own Your Audience with Confidence

Learn how seemingly fearless speakers think on their feet with energy and confidence. Practice improv activities that help with reducing anxiety and accelerating creative thinking. Apply strategies for logical and concise communication that keep the audience focused, on message and remembering you after you leave. Engage with your listeners by leading with genuine curiosity such as asking meaningful questions.
