Persuasive Speech

Public Speaking

“Live an active life among people who are doing worthwhile things, keep eyes and ears and mind and heart open to absorb truth, and then tell of the things you know, as if you know them. The world will listen, for the world loves nothing so much as real life."- Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
