“Often those who are at the top of their fields by way of education are slightly more uncomfortable in social situations. Networking events find many with sweaty palms and tied tongues.” Speaking in front of small or large groups creates voice trembling and paused speech for some. Does any of this sound familiar to you? If you’d like to learn more about speaking and presenting, don’t miss this new presentation Ms. Catlin will be offering on Thursday, April 4 at Noon-1:15 p.m. in Room 505! In this presentation, Ms. Catlin will teach students how to bring out their confident and relaxed persona while remaining highly professional and leaving a positive lasting impression upon others. She teaches the rules in a comfortable and easy to remember way so that the interpersonal skills you need will become easily embraced and practiced.
