Public Speaking Seminar to be held at HCC.

A FREE seminar on eliminating the fear of public speaking will be held on January 21 and 28 at Haywood Community College. The seminar will meet between noon and 1 p.m. in the room adjacent to HCC’s cafeteria.

The theories presented in this seminar are part of a research project by Dr C.E. "Buzz" Johnson, Toastmaster Governor for this area. According to Johnson researchers over the years have pinpointed the number one fear in this country as the fear of public speaking. It ranks higher than the fear of dying according to these experts. Johnson will present techniques that are designed to help you overcome this fear. A person should be able to attend one session and learn how to control the fear of public speaking significantly. The class is open to HCC students, faculty, staff and the general public.
