Confidence in Public Speaking

Emily Adkins is an instructor at WKU. She has earned a B.A. and M.A. in Communication from WKU. She currently teaches public speaking and has presented at several national and international conferences on a variety of topics. She has a passion for education and helping students reach their fullest potention. This is what she has to say about her session at the High School Leadership Conference (HSLC).

"As an instructor of Fundamentals of Public Speaking, one of the biggest concerns I hear from my students is how nervous they get when they present in class. I get it, public speaking can be daunting, but it can also be the skill that propels you through life and sets you above the rest! You have plenty of things in life to stress about, and public speaking shouldn't be one of them. In this session, we'll briefly cover the fundamentals of public speaking and increase your confidence in your ability as a presenter. I look forward to meeting you and helping you increase your confidence in public speaking!"
