On-Site Speech Classes

As a full time college professor, I have had the privilege of regularly teaching speech courses for nearly two decades, while at the same time serving as director of forensics (speech team) for one of the most successful programs in the nation.   The Los Angeles Valley College speech team has won the team gold medal from the national championship tournament in 2008, 2009, and again for 2011.

My experience has helped me to realize –  there is absolutely no substitute for practical application…for practice!   The students learn and grow the most – when they are at the front of the room speaking!   I have also come to realize that 8 hours, divided by 4 weeks is not only ideal for the duration of the class content and speaking time, but it also ideal for allowing the class participants to properly prepare and deliver two different presentations each.

On-site speech classes combine the foundational elements offered in the Empowering Speech 2 Hour Public Speaking Workshop with practical application.   All of the participants speak!   Each participant will stand up and demonstrate what they are learning – as they learn it!

The experience not only empowers each individual with public speaking skills, but also the group as a whole will become transformed to a level of cohesiveness that otherwise would not be possible! The group together confronts the fear of public speaking! Public speaking is the number one fear in life! There is no more productive and dynamic way to break down the walls, unify your staff, and enhance productivity than with a public speaking class.

The 4 week public speaking course is designed for 15-20 people and meets once a week for two hours on-sight at your location.   All participants will be individually coached through the delivery of two different speeches, as well as given personal evaluations. Each student will also receive a very user friendly workbook. The Empowering Speech workbook serves as a both a tool for the class, as well as an invaluable resource for preparing any and all future presentations and speeches.
