I wanted to take a few moments to discuss a class I recently finished taking in grad school at UF. As a graduate business student, all are required to take “Professional Communication”. I’ll be honest I was a bit skeptical at first, but what I got out of these few weeks of class will benefit me for the rest of my professional career.
What we learned is how to speak to a business audience, consisting primarily of high-level executives. This is a situation that I will find myself in countless times for the duration of my career. We were taught how to interpret our unintentional movements during speeches (swaying, meaningless arm motions, etc.). I learned a whole lot in this class, and I intend to continue to practice as a public speaker.
Dr. Webster is a standout professor. She does an outstanding job of engaging each student in her class regardless of their background. I highly recommend her as a professor at the University of Florida.
