At what age should we begin our public speaking training?
This question is one I ask myself a lot. The reason is the number of young graduate students I work with who find it so hard to express themselves. I have worked with so many young people with fantastic CVs, brilliant academic backgrounds but very little self confidence. I was exactly the same as a young man except for the fantastic CV and brilliant academic background. However, everybody can catch up with practice, but it’s a slog with all the activities going on in a young person’s life. So, I repeat the question, at what age should we begin our public speaking training?
