|Rock your Audience with Power, Passion and Purpose|
|There are legitimate reasons people (including leaders) fear public speaking more than death. We fear we’re exposing ourselves to scrutiny of our knowledge, ideas and private ideals. While it’s important to prepare a speech or presentation by crafting the wording, many professionals don’t realize one of the keys to engaging their audience; that speaking from their passion, framing their speech around their message and who they are as a person, is what moves their audience. If you don’t look and sound confident, others won’t be confident in you. In our session together, we’ll explore and practice the components that empower your voice and infuse your passion:

|An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) analyzes the heart’s electrical rhythm for abnormalities. When needed, and AED administers a shock, called defibrillation, to a person suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. The shock may help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm and can increase the chance of survival.
Every minute counts.Even the fastest ambulance response rates in the U.S. are not sufficient to give most Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims a fighting chance–unless an AED is readily available. Victims’ survival chances drop by 10% for every minute that passes, while an AED can increase survival chances from 5% to as high as 75%.
The University has recently added several AED’s providing for over 30 across the campus. Come to this session and get informed about how to properly use an AED in an emergency situation.
