Public speaking scares me, why should I take this class?

Success in any profession demands that you know how to communicate your good ideas to other people. Everyone needs to learn to prepare their thoughts, then put them into words.

I'm shy! I don't like to talk in front of people.

This class is a journey we take together. You are here to gain experience, corral your thoughts, and learn how to improve your skills.
