Presentations About Speaking

For the Western Museum Association

I was asked to be a part of a panel on public speaking. My section of that workshop was how to organize a speech.







For the Assistance League

I had the opportunity to speak for this youth group about public speaking. I gave the same basic presentation to two groups throughout the day.
