November 16: Public Speaking to Pack a Punch with Lisa Munger Oakes

Public speaking can strike fear in the hearts of even the most intrepid communications professionals. Lisa Munger Oakes, a faculty member at ISU’s Greenlisa-munger-oakeslee School of Journalism and former political campaign manager/communication director, will offer several ways to work through these anxieties and make sure your public speaking message comes through exactly how you want it to. We’ll address language choice, body language, engaging the audience, vocal tonality and body language.

About Our Speaker Lisa Munger Oakes’ reporting has appeared in local, regional and national newspapers and magazine such as the Huffington Post, as well as on international platforms, including Transitions magazine in the Czech Republic and Al-Jazeera English web coverage in Qatar and Egypt. After returning to the U.S., she worked as a political and business reporter, breaking a story that led to three federal indictments and convictions in a $500 million Ponzi scheme.
