Welcome to Public Speaking for Today’s Audiences! This book was written for CMNS 1125: Public Speaking at Douglas College, but could also be a valuable textbook for many other undergraduate professional writing courses (and CMNS 1125 transfers as equivalent to many other post-secondary institutions, especially in British Columbia).
