Learn tips and tactics for giving successful presentations. Enjoy a humorous approach to overcoming an activity many people approach with dread--public speaking. This discussion will help you give presentations with more confidence and impact by planning for success, structuring your content, creating useful visual aids, and learning ways to increase your confidence in delivering talks and workshops. Dr. McCoy has over 30 years experience giving talks, lectures and workshops to audiences large and small and to a wide range of audiences on a variety of subjects, including genealogy.

Carol's presentation to our chapter was excellent! She facilitated a discussion on the often-intimidating subject of public speaking, entitled "Keys to Successful Presentations." Not only was it interesting and helpful; it was fun! She has a real talent for drawing people into a discussion.
