Has public speaking become a dinosaur? In the age of blogs, texting, Twitter and Facebook, has the traditional art of communication via spoken words, eye contact, vocal inflections and nonverbal gestures become less popular? Are gifted speakers those rare creatures born with charisma and unique style? The answer is definitely no. Accomplished speakers all have skills that can be learned, practiced and mastered by anyone with the desire to motivate and move others. Simply Speaking is a tool for teachers, students, and adult learners who wish to become proficient in their communication skills.

The ability to express one’s thoughts verbally to produce a clear message in spoken language is a vital skill. From highstakes situations, such as interviews or presentations, to social interactions, the ability to interact and communicate through speech and language is necessary for success in life. This DVD and guide set present examples of individuals who demonstrate the road to successful public speaking. They show how motivation and dedicated practice can help someone advance and become a polished presenter.
