What is "Speed Practice" most useful for?

- overcoming the fear of public speaking (in a highly-encouraging atmosphere)
- learning to speak in your authentic voice by not relying on a script
- boosting your adaptation skills (eg quick thinking on your feet) for high-pressure environments


Goal: To practice quick-thinking on our feet in front of an audience as well as getting comfortable and giving our best effort even if there's little time to prepare.

Useful for: General confidence when speaking and those times when we didn't expect to present.  Whether it's a group meeting at work and the CEO has us a say a few words about our project or we are surprised with an award, it demonstrates poise and confidence to be able to rise to the occasion.

Speech Length: 3 minutes

Preparation: None required.  You'll have 1 minute to prepare just prior to speaking.  Feel free to practice before the party on your own with random topics, giving yourself 1 min prep and 3 minutes of talk time.
