To gain the skills I need to speak coherently in public before I die. I'm over 50 and educated but when I have to speak I get so nervous that I am about as articulate as a five year old. Not the impression I want to leave people with and thus the reason I am interested in joining your group. The logisitics of making the meetings is a concern since I work long week-day hours and by Sat. morning I'm exhausted. But I'm taking a step forward to stop dreading it (public speaking) and start doing something about it.
Hi. Just like all of you, I want to improve my public speaking skills.
