Workshop will focus on improving public speaking skills

The Rev. M'ellen Kennedy will hold a workshop on speaking in public, for large or small groups. The small group workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, June 9 at the Springfield Unitarian Universalist Church, 21 Fairground Road, Springfield.

Anyone interested in learning about or improving their skills and comfort in speaking without script is invited to attend. Participants will receive resources, support and techniques for public speaking.

The workshop participants will work in safe, respectful small groups where they can practice for presenting, such as at work, volunteer settings, social engagements or church.

Registration is $35, and generous scholarships are available, supported by the New York State Convention of Universalists.
