St. John's University (History)
Baruch College (Master's)
I have taught Public Speaking to hundreds of Business Students at Baruch College for the past ten years. I have a Master's degree in corporate communications, and I have researched, prepared, and delivered scores of presentations to senior management at major global corporations including Coca-Cola,FedEx,and IBM.
I teach my students that the way to avoid stage fright is to do your homework, and to be prepared. If you are prepared, then even if you happen to be nervous when you present, no one else will know it.
I teach students to speak extemporaneously because we choose different words when we speak than when we write and extemporaneous delivery sounds more natural.
I teach students to use PowerPoint slides because PowerPoint is the medium of choice for most business presentations. I have personally prepared hundreds of PowerPoint presentations. I teach students that you have to own your presentation. You have to be prepared to answer any question.
I teach students that in business, almost every speech you give is designed to be persuasive because you must have an objective for any business presentation.
I tell students not to worry about hand gestures because your hands are in sync with your voice, and your heart. I teach students not to worry about making eye contact with everyone in the audience. If you find the friendliest face in the audience and keep coming back to him or her you will think you are doing a good job, and so will everyone else.
Especially with business presentations I try to encourage students to "tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them."
Start with your conclusions.
I tell my students that if someone asks you to give a speech about something you are not interested in, don't do it!
I teach my students that public speaking is probably the most important skill that you need to acquire in order to succeed in business, because no matter how good a scientist, or a mathematician, or a computer technician you may be, nobody will know how good you are unless you can present your ideas clearly and cogently. If you don't, somebody else will,and they will get the credit. I have taught Public Speaking to hundreds of Business Students at Baruch College for the past ten years.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
As an advertising agency researcher for the last forty years, I have worked for some of the finest advertising agencies in the world on some of the world's most famous brands, including Coca-Cola, FedEx, and IBM. I have learned that advertising is as much a science as it is an art. Advertising is hard work, but it is also a lot of fun, and every day is different. I have taught advertising to college students as well. I try to teach my students to appreciate the lessons I have learned and to enjoy the business as much as I have.
I have taught Public Speaking to hundreds of Business Students at Baruch College for the past ten years. "Good class, well taught; had fun; keep it up." is the way one student evaluated the class.
I have an MA in Corporate Communications, and have personally researched, prepared, and delivered scores of presentations to senior management at major global corporations including Coca-Cola,FedEx,and IBM.
