Description

Working Through It: Strategies for Public Speaking

Maggie Gildersleeve '23, Saro (Naomi) Gakusi '24, Chin Wai (Rosie) Wong '22 (Faculty Sponsor: Heather Derrick)

Three students who recently completed a public speaking course at Hollins University will be showcasing tips for developing student success skills during the pandemic, as well as discussing best practices for communicating to a virtual audience. Regardless of one's career path, creating a well-crafted presentation and then being able to publicly and effectively present in a way that engages with the audience is an important skill to develop. Unfortunately, very few classes give students the opportunity to craft and design creative presentations for an audience, much less a virtual audience. Every day audience members are consuming countless presentations, and speakers need to learn how to cut through the noise and form a direct connection between the audience and the message. Through modeling and discussing, members of the panel plan on sharing strategies for effective engagement in the Zoom environment, how to creatively relate scholarly research to an audience, and how to overcome the anxiety of public speaking for effective delivery.
