William Taft and Public Speaking

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
William Howard Taft succeeded Theodore Roosevelt as the 27th President of the United States in the early 1900s. In June of 1921, Taft was named chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and remains to this day the only person to have ever served both as president and chief justice. That's quite an accomplishment! Taft had popularity and great family ties on his side, but his ability to communicate effectively was also a key to his success. This ability included an expertise in public speaking. Public speaking can be one of the most nerve-wracking classes we take in college. If it's taught well, this course can help us understand how to effectively communicate and succeed in our chosen career path. Thinkwell's Public Speaking course is a great way to help you grow comfortable with the idea and the reality of speaking in front of large and small groups of people, and it's an excellent tool to help you sharpen your communication skills.

Here's a lecture by Professor Dan West of Rice University called "The Legacy of Public Speaking." Travel back in time with us as we explore public speaking and communication--one decade at a time.
