Summary

Presenting to the class or delivering a speech to a large crowd can create anxiety, fear, and stress. Adapted from the best-selling text, The Art of Public Speaking, First Canadian Edition, will equip readers with tools and strategies to allay their fears while captivating audiences in various contexts, from the classroom to the workplace. Stressing the importance of public speaking in both the academic career and in the workplace is a challenge as students often don't realize that writing for the ear is different than writing for the eye. The scope of the text includes different public speaking situations (e.g., business meetings, web casting, teleconferencing, meetings, trade shows, etc.).The Art of Public Speaking walks readers through the steps and skills involved in crafting and delivering effective oral presentations. Bringing the theory to life, the authors include numerous engaging Canadian examples relevant to a variety of disciplines and careers. Examples and speeches draw on current topical issues (free trade, corporate spying, genetically modified food, etc.) that are important to Canadians and to post-secondary students. Whether a novice or a professional, every student will learn how to be a better public speaker through Lucas' clear explanations and thorough coverage. Ultimately, this text helps students learn practical oral communication skills that enable them to navigate through life with greater confidence to achieve personal and professional success.
