Crum’s Workshops/Seminars on Writing and Public Speaking
Dana Crum is an experienced teacher and trainer who leads writing and public-speaking workshops and seminars in corporate settings and in academic or literary settings. It is Crum’s experience of working in both the corporate world and in schools and universities that enables him to teach and train in both environments. And he can tailor these classes to all age groups, having taught and trained adults, teenagers and children over the last eleven years.
Crum offers workshops and seminars on the following types of writing: fiction, poetry, reviews, academic essays and business writing. His public-speaking workshops and seminars cover the mechanics of effective public speaking (pronunciation, enunciation, projection, inflection and eye contact) and the skills of effective speech writing (introductions, conclusions, use of research, humor and wit, anecdotes and structure); these classes also help participants conquer their fear of public speaking, giving them practical strategies for coping with anxiety.
