Public Speaking Course for Teens

An interactive and enjoyable introduction to the basics of Speech Presentation. Emphasis will be placed on each student delivering several short speeches, with feedback provided as to where strengths lie and where improvements can be made. Through practice students gain confidence and an understanding of what connects, engages and maintains an audience‘s attention.

Coaching for Results
