What the class includes:

What you say when you don’t have a script is equally as important as when you do. The ability to speak clearly and concisely to casting directors, agents, large groups, and during interviews, makes and leaves a lasting impression about who you are what it would be like to work with you. In this 4-week series, John Watkis will help you build your foundation for public speaking so that what you say and how you say it leave a positive impression and increase your know/like/trust factor.
