If you are like most people, you fear public speaking more than you fear death. However, the person with strong communication skills has a clear advantage over tongue-tied colleagues â especially in todayâs spookily competitive job market.
This fall, District 14 Georgia Toastmasters is teaming up with Death (a.k.a. The Grim Reaper) in a joint effort to help people conquer their pre-speech jitters.
