TEWKSBURY JOB SEEKERS NETWORK: Learn How To Be A Better Public Speaker (from a Stand-Up Comedian)

Monday, December 162:00—3:30 PMMeeting RoomTewksbury Public Library300 Chandler Street, Tewksbury, MA, 01876

Want to learn how to be a better presenter? Dave Rattigan, professional stand-up comedian and adjunct faculty member at Northern Essex Community College, will give a presentation titled “Facing Your Fear: Public Speaking."

Rattigan, a former Boston Globe and People Magazine correspondent, used to be a fearful public speaker. Motivated by a life-long desire to do stand-up comedy, he conquered that fear and has gone on to perform for crowds as large as 2,300 at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and as small as three people at a Lexington restaurant. For nearly two decades, he’s specialized in making better speakers out of those who are nervous, not nervous enough, fearful or cluelessly courageous. This interactive presentation focuses on facing your fear, seeing yourself as others see you, and simple steps to give a better presentation at work or socially. As an adjunct faculty member at Northern Essex and UMass Lowell, Rattigan teaches public speaking, interpersonal communications, and professional communications.

There will be plenty of time for networking after the presentation. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
