What's the best choice for you? Each of these approaches has its advantages, so let's take a look.
This class covers a wide range of communication skills, including impromptu speaking, thinking on your feet, writing and rehearsing a formal presentation, and speaking with the media.
Class members come from around the world and from every type of company and profession. The course takes place over three days at our school in Camden, South Carolina.
