Dr. Cole delivers 2012 Red Hawk Day speech

Public Speaking Resource Center

The Public Speaking Resource Center is open to all university students, faculty, and staff that are preparing to speak publicly. Experienced speech consultants assist with all aspects of the speech preparation process including topic selection, research, outlining, and delivery. Working with a speech consultant provides individuals and groups invaluable feedback and also diminishes speech anxiety. Whether you are giving an individual or group presentation in class, presenting at an academic conference, conducting a training session, giving a toast, developing an elevator pitch, interviewing, or speaking to your group/organization we can help you feel prepared and confident.
