COMM 2100: Public Speaking: Home


This guide will identify a variety of library resources that you can use to identify research to support your informative, persuasive and invitational speeches. If you need personal assistance do not hesitate to contact me.



“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” (Jerry Seinfeld)
