Conquering your fear of public speaking
If you have a fear of public speaking, you are not alone. Fear of public speaking is the most common of all phobias. Come and learn public speaking tips and tricks that will help you develop your speaking skills at the April 21 Cuero Chamber of Commerce, Agriculture and Visitors Bureau Lunch and Learn program presented by Donald Jirkovsky, business adviser for the University of Houston-Victoria Small Business Development Center. The class will be held at the Cuero Chamber of Commerce, Agriculture and Visitors Bureau, 210 E. Main St. from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We ask that guests call ahead and reserve a space for this no-fee workshop. Class participants are asked to bring their own sack lunch, and beverages will be provided.
