You Know What I'm Sayin'?

You Know What I’m Sayin’? A Handbook on How to Deliver Effective Presentations

10:30 AM  Dec 9th, 2013
by Audrey Starr

A book by Heather Johnson Parsons ’95

At 10 years old, Parsons spent two weeks preparing for a class speech. Armed with plenty of research and hours of practice, she stood in front of her classmates — and was too paralyzed with fear to deliver a single word. In her book, You Know What I’m Sayin’?, the communications lecturer advises readers on how to avoid this and other common public speaking horrors. “I wrote the book for the average person who has never taken a public speaking course; but it was also on my bucket list,” Parsons says. “I wanted to challenge myself and prove that I could do it. Most of my friends don’t even know I wrote it.”
