Guidance from an Expert Speech Teacher

My interview with Dr. Kevin Mace–Assistant Professor of Speech and Film at Brenau University–stirred memories of my years of teaching Speech Communication at the University of Georgia. Kevin brought excellent information and advice to “The Communication Corner,” the program I host on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.”

You will benefit from hearing Dr. Mace comment on these and other topics:
–The origins of speech teaching in ancient Greece and Rome
–The most outstanding American speaker
–The single most influential speech in recorded history
–Colorful speaking events connected with the Chautauqua circuit
–Why everyone should take a speech course or enlist a Speech Coach
–Controlling stage fright
–The pluses and minuses of Power Point
–Speech preparation and delivery

Speak with Greater Poise, Power, and Persuasion

Daniel Webster, one of America’s greatest statesmen and orators, said: “If I were to lose all of my possessions except one, I would keep the power of communication–for by it I would soon regain all of the rest.

You can agree to that statement easily. In your business, professional, and civic life, you have noticed that those who can speak with “poise, power, and persuasion” will be more likely to:
–Get hired from among many applicants
–Earn promotions to upper level management
–Become CEOs
–Provide dynamic team leadership
–Assume leadership roles in prominent community organizations
–Enjoy a level of self-confidence that even improves their social life
