The XCEL Center's Public Speaking Lab
Does the very idea of speaking in front of a few people, a class or a meeting not only give your stomach butterflies, but also put you into a complete panic? Well, fear not ... you're not alone...and the XCEL Center can help!
The XCEL Center staff coordinates a Public Speaking Lab, where you can access resources to help develop or fine-tune your public speaking/presentation skills. In addition to the more than 100 printed and video/audio taped resources available, you can also schedule a time to have your public speaking presentation videotaped by XCEL peer Leadership Consultants (XLCs). You will be able to view your presentation on video, and instantly receive a critique of your public speaking skills with suggestions offered by the XLCs.
Contact us if you'd like to set up a time in the public speaking lab for your presentation to be videotaped and critiqued. Allow two business days to schedule your videotape appointment.
