Announcing: Speaking Center Fall Workshops!

Each workshop below consists of a brief presentation on the topic, with opportunities for individual follow-up discussions in a relaxed atmosphere:

Speech Basics: Tuesday September 23 at 5 p.m.

Stumped on how to spice up your speeches? Let the Speaking Center help you think of fresh introductions, interesting transitions, and innovative PowerPoint to start your first speech of the semester smoothly.

Speech Anxiety and Confidence: Wednesday October 22 at 5 p.m.

Does the thought of presenting a speech make you want to drop the class? Welcome to the club. This workshop offers some helpful ways to reduce anxiety and display confidence in public speaking.

Group Discussion: Thursday November 20 at 5 p.m.

This workshop will be an engaging opportunity to improve your group discussion skills. As professors focus on class participation and dialogue, you have the choice to become an active leader and participant in your classes. Attending this workshop will help you acquire the skills to effectively communicate here at UMW and in the future.

Pizza and light refreshments will be served at all workshops.

Contact the Speaking Center at x. 1347 or spkc@umw.edu today to reserve a spot!
