Oral Communication

We believe public speaking is a skill anyone can develop, and we work with both undergraduate and graduate students to identify and achieve their goals.

Whether you are pulling together a presentation for the first time, putting the final touches on something you’ve been working on, or struggling with anxiety about speaking in public, we can help. Our Public Speaking Consultants provide individualized, confidential, supportive coaching.

Public speaking consultants can help you

  • Create, practice or polish an oral presentation
  • Learn techniques to strengthen your personal speaking style
  • Learn how to use visual tools effectively
  • Prepare for an oral exam, thesis defense or qualifying exam
  • Organize research into a conference presentation, guest lecture, or speaking engagement
  • Manage your fears or anxiety so you can speak in public with confidence

Note: We offer a special program and courses on Oral Communication for international and multilingual graduate students.
