VIDEO ENCORE - Strictly Speaking: Public Speaking Skills for Lawyers

CLE - VIDEO ENCORE_Strictly Speaking: Public Speaking Skills

If you missed the live presentation of this compelling CLE, you can attend this video presentation and learn the practical tips and techniques to prepare lawyers for any public speaking event.

Here's what your colleagues considered the "most valuable aspect" of this entertaining and informative CLE program.
-- "Vital topic."
-- "Learning important points that are not addressed enough."
-- "You want me to pick one? Its very clear structure/breakdown of the components of public speaking."
-- "The way in which the subject matter was presented; including the video clips really made this a great seminar."
-- "This is one of the best seminars I have attended. Please have Mr. Savoth give seminars on other topics. This was great!"

One of the most important skills for lawyers is the ability to speak in public, whether it be before a forum of hundreds or a conference room with only a handful of people in attendance. It is expected that all attorneys, not only trial lawyers, have the gift of rising from your seat and providing concise and relevant remarks. That occasion may arise in your professional or personal life.

This CLE course will provide attorneys with the tools to conquer any public speaking engagement in any environment, including courtroom arguments and orations, firm presentations, large audience addresses, toasts and eulogies.

Through the use of video examples, featured speaker and former Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor, John E. Savoth, will offer guidance on effective methods of delivery. Attorneys will learn practical tips and techniques to prepare them for any public speaking event.

Mr. Savoth received rave reviews. See what the attendees said:
-- "Excellent and well-prepared."
-- "He made me laugh. He made me cry. CLE instructors aren't supposed to have this capability. Do more with Mr. Savoth!"
-- "Great presentation."
-- "Great seminar presenter. Pace and flow of the seminar was great and considerate of how hard it is to attend a CLE."

A unique, fun and informative CLE program just in time for August compliance!
