In this deep-dive extension of one of our most popular public speaking classes, participants will be challenged to advance their established public speaking skillset.
Through the use of in-depth case studies, lecture and group work, you will learn to grow beyond abilities of a novice speaker and develop tools of a seasoned professional.
