Public Speaking: Speaking Under Pressure

Speaking under pressure, or improvisation, is based on being able to quickly organize your thoughts and ideas, and then convey them expressively to your audience to modify their attitudes or behavior. Speaking under pressure applies to formal speeches along with everyday business situations.

It requires presence of mind, goal orientation, adaptation, and judgment. It also requires differentiating between oral and written communications.  

This two day workshop is designed for those who are in positions where they must speak in front of demanding hostile audiences.
