Capture Your Audience in Writing and Public Speaking



If you fail to grab your audiences' attention in the lead paragraph or first 10-20 seconds of your speech, you may have lost your opportunity to be heard.  Whether you're giving a presentation, writing a press release, or drafting an op-ed, effective speaking and writing is the difference between success and failure.  So what does it take to be a strong public speaker? What does good writing look like?  
Local freelance writer and editor Brian Berusch and public speaking coach and author Pam Chambers give you insight on how to fine-tune your skills so your messages stand out and rise above the clutter.
