Friedman School Public Speaking Workshop for Students and Postdocs

Today’s leaders must have the ability not only to analyze thoughtfully but also to communicate clearly and persuasively. This workshop is intended to give participants tools to become a more persuasive and effective public speaker—someone who speaks with the ease, confidence, clarity, and modes of persuasion that are critical in today’s corporate, nonprofit, and policy worlds.

In this 3-session course, two sessions will introduce students to strategies of spoken communication and to models of public presentation (these sessions are open to all Friedman students and postdocs).  In the final session participants will deliver speeches and receive feedback (enrollment for the final session is limited to 15 participants).

This workshop is led by Mihir Mankad, Lecturer in Communications at the Fletcher School.  His course, The Arts of Communication, has become one of the highest enrolled courses at Fletcher. There is no cost to students for the workshop.  Workshop leader: Mihir Mankad, Lecturer in Communications, Fletcher School.
