Hume Johnson, PhD
Our culture values oral communication skills. Employers see employees with great speaking skills as an asset to their organisations. In addition, public speaking can develop critical thinking skills – engaging in reasoned discourse where you can display your analytical skills. You can also develop professional, civic and personal skills.
I would like you to reflect on your own public speaking goals. Below I have provided a series of questions, I would like you to provide answers to them.
- Why are you taking public speaking?
- What knowledge and skills do you bring to the subject?
- What new skills and competencies do you wish to develop during this course?
- What role does public speaking play in your life now?
- What role can public speaking play in your future?
