What have been your experiences with public speaking? Have you been required (or volunteered) to speak in a work environment? Describe one personal public speaking event. Discuss how you felt before, during, and after and how you presented your information (organization, visual aids, etc.). How did your audience respond? Keep in mind public speaking does not have to be before a large group, and can occur in informal environments as well as formal ones. Use terminology from your textbooks, and use information from the week’s assigned material to support your answer, citing and referencing as appropriate.
