South County Senior Activity Center 27 Stepneys Lane Edgewater, MD 21037
Here is your chance to get on stage and tell us something from your heart. Everyone, including you, has a story to tell. When it is real and personal and from your own experience, these stories can be compelling and universally appealing. This four-part class focuses on the written word, your own story, and how to then confidently and effectively Present with Power and Poise in Public. Please join us whether you are looking to build confidence and tune your skills or are a polished public speaker. Participants should bring a draft story of up to three pages to the first class, attend the three classes, edit and fine-tune their speech to share with the class and then present their four-to -seven minute Edgewater Talk “EDTalk” at the senior center on a future date in March. Your facilitator, Paul Foer, has presented to audiences in over 20 states and is a Bronze level Toastmaster. He holds an MA in journalism, was a radio show host, wrote over 150 columns for The Capital newspaper and hundreds of articles and stories in other publications. He thinks that public speaking is fun, and hopes you will agree.
