THINK FASTER, TALK SMARTER: HOW TO SPEAK SUCCESSFULLY WHEN PUT ON THE SPOT

 
Communication is critical to success in business and life. Concerned about an upcoming interview? Anxious about being asked to give your thoughts during a meeting? Fearful about needing to provide critical feedback in the moment? You are not alone! Many of us are uneasy about speaking in public, especially in impromptu, "off the cuff" situations. Learn and practice techniques that will help you speak spontaneously with greater confidence and clarity, regardless of content and context.
