Are you planning to present public comments at a government hearing, speak on behalf of an organization, speak at a rally, or provide training to others? This workshop will cover the essentials of an effective presentation as well as best practices for designing slides for PowerPoint. (You do not need to know how to use PowerPoint before attending the training.) League leaders who think they may eventually speak on an issue on behalf of the League are especially encouraged to attend.
LWV-Wake President Dianna Wynn will conduct the training. Dianna was a consultant and college professor with over 25 years of experience delivering communication skills training to businesses, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and adult learners. She has almost a decade of experience working with attorney-clients developing courtroom communication strategies in preparation for high-stakes complex civil litigation in various jurisdictions throughout the country. Dianna is the co-author of several college-level communication textbooks and is the former Director of Forensics for a nationally award winning college speech and debate team. She has an M.S. in Communication and Public Address and a B.A. in Speech Communication. She is a lifetime member of the National Communication Association.
