Public Speaking with Susan Rogers, MA Speech Communication

Presented by Nevada County Democrats

138 New Mohawk Rd., Nevada City, CA 95959

First workshop in our series of Candidate Campaign Workshops on special topics.  Cost is $35, snack provided.

Susan Rogers has a master’s degree in Speech Communications from UC Santa Barbara, and has taught speaking skills through UCSB, Santa Barbara City College, and Brooks Institute of Photography, and as a private workshop leader.

We will discuss the three key types of content that should be included in any persuasive presentation-- organizing your material, feeling more comfortable, and being perceived as credible will also be covered. This is valuable information for candidates and others who might act as a surrogate for a candidate, give public testimony, or just want to be more comfortable in front of a group. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to present a 3-minute speech.  Materials on how to prepare it will be sent out ahead of time. Contact: Margie Joehnck, Chair, Candidate Recruitment and Support Committee Phone: 530 748-5146, Email:
