Importance of public speaking

I received this nice memo from Tia Bent, MSBA class of 2013.

I wanted to thank you for accepting me into the program and helping work through my public speaking issues last year. It still bothers me, but I spoke on a panel last week with over 100 people in the audience on mental health and veterans issues with Frank Sesna from CNN as the moderator.

I know without doing the program last  year I would have never put myself out there for an emotional topic, especially for a large group of people being recorded.
Please send a big thanks to the rest of the professors for me.

  1. This is very encouraging to read. As someone who gets extremely nervous when speaking in front of an audience, it is inspiring to see someone who has gotten over her fear and has done such great things. Just being in the program for a few months has helped me a lot with my public speaking, so by the end of the year I hope to improve even more and who knows, maybe one day I will be able to speak to over a hundred people too.

  2. You'll be there before you know it Melissa.
