Quote of the Month
"Speech is an arrangement of notes that will never be played again." – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Tip of the Month
When delivering your speech, stick with simple and short language. By doing so, your idea becomes more clear to your audience. If shorthand would remove repetitiveness from your speech, clearly define the term used and state that from that point on, the term will be used rather than the longhand version.
Speech of the Month
Oscar Winner, Lupita Nyong’o, addresses Black Women of Hollywood on the meaning of beauty. She uses a number of strong personal narratives and audience centered language to relate to her audience, both in person and to a wider internet viewing.
