The Art of Public Speaking & Presentation Skills

It's the night before a presentation at work or a job interview. You're feeling anxious; you have butterflies in your stomach and you're worried your performance will suffer because of it.

What would you do if you had techniques in your back pocket that could help calm your nerves, engage your audience and communiate a clear message? If you were a little less on edge before having to speak in public, what could you accomplish?

The Art of Public Speaking & Presentation Skills will equip you with tools to:

  • reign in stage fright
  • gain the attention of an audience
  • keep your audience focused on what you are saying
  • make your words memorable

Anyone who speaks in front of an audience in any situation and wants to learn how to do so with confidence while leaving a lasting impression needs to be a part of this workshop.

Our instructor, Greg Justice, is both a professor and a professional actor. He has been offering workshops in the industry for over 25 years and is excited to help you overcome your fears. But - while you can expect to be participatory, there's no need to worry about being put on the spot in this workshop!

This workshop is $269 per person and will be held in-person at the Virginia Tech Roanoke Center on Feb. 10, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (with an hour for lunch).

Greg Justice is a professional speaker, executive speaker trainer, actor, director and associate professor in the School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech. He has been offering workshops in the industry for over 25 years. His diverse list of clients includes several Fortune 500 companies, scores of CEOs and hundreds of businesses and organizations.
