"Public Speaking for Introverts"
Mr. Mattson is CEO of Mattson Communication Training
Brief Overview of Presentation Public Speaking for Introverts and Extraverts
The public speaking skill is highly prized in the American culture. Those with this skill earn higher incomes, get more notoriety, receive more opportunities, and are looked up to as role models. However, it has been said that Public Speaking is the number one fear of Americans causing a large percentage of people—even extraverts—to run for cover at the thought of giving a speech. What chance do introverts or shy people have if extraverts are rewarded so well?
Rod’s presentation will answer that questions and give specific takeaways that can help the introvert, the shy, and the extravert become a better and more effective speaker.
Public Speaking isn’t a domain just for Extraverts. Introverts can be equally as effective, or in some cases more effective than extraverts.
