    Matt Garner will present to us:

    Public Speaking for the HR Professional

    Great communication is the opportunity to influence other people. But public speaking is the #1 fear in the United States, death is #2. Most people would prefer to be in the casket rather than delivering the eulogy at a funeral. The biggest reason people fear public speaking is because they haven’t be taught how to do it. Three things help people to improve as public speakers: a good process, preparation and practice, and personal feedback.


    Matt spent 24 years in the Army. The first half of his career he was a helicopter pilot and the second half he was a Public Affairs Officer, a PR guy, for the Army. He published newspapers on two continents, taught Soldiers how to speak with the media and worked with local, regional, national and international press throughout the world. Longboard PR specializes in helping individuals and companies understand what to say to whom and how. Matt graduated in Communication and English from Weber State College in 1990. He enjoys building custom furniture, running, biking and good chocolate.

    This presentation has been pre-approved for 1 HRCI and 1 SHRM credit.
