Month 9 – Communication and Public Speaking

Objective: It doesn’t matter how brilliant your idea is. If you can’t communicate it effectively, it won’t be successful. There’s more to communicating than just saying words. Successful communication requires thought and preparation as well as clear, straightforward delivery.

This month we’ll learn the importance of “who, what, and why” in successful communication. We’ll also discover the many aspects involved in delivery. The more consideration you give to all of these, the more successful your communication and public speaking will be.
