“The art of communication is the language of leadership.”

Communication skills have never been more important. Especially in the workplace (with everyday interactions between coworkers, bosses, and clients), public speaking is a vital skill to have and hone. SPCH 100 – Public Communication focuses on the content, organization, and the delivery of ideas to sharpen your performance and convey your message in a more effective and confident manner.
“Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.”
– Paul J. Meyer
