Public Speaking: Effective Skills for Libraries
9:30 AM - 3:30 PM Eastern
Event Description
Public Speaking can be an intimidating experience for most people. However, when we choose to see Public Speaking with an “overcomer mindset,” visualizing what we can do, we emerge as empowered and confident communicators. This workshop will focus on creating dynamic presentations from start to finish with an organized plan. Special topics such as dealing with nervousness, presenting with a confident vocal quality and learning how to capture the audience’s attention will be addressed.  
Learning Objectives:
  • Adopt effective strategies for dealing with nervousness
  • Engage the audience’s attention with your voice
  • Choose words to capture the audience’s attention
  • Create speaking notes to effectively communicate your message confidently

Marilee Fini, M.A. CCC/SLP is certified and licensed Speech Pathologist in Cleveland, OH running her own private practice, MLF Speech Therapy where she sees children and adults. She is also a professional speaker and been presenting for over 24 years. In addition, she is an adjunct professor at Lakeland Community College where she teaches Public Speaking. Currently, she speaks for corporations, in healthcare and for other organizations on effective communication, Public Speaking and motivational topics.  As a kid who stuttered, she couldn’t imagine being a speaker or a Speech Pathologist! In her presentations, she shares a message of discovering an “overcomer mindset” and being able to do things you never thought were possible!
