Welcome to

Hello and welcome to SPEAC University


I created SPEAC University as a free, online resource for all your public speaking needs. Here you'll find training videos and resources you can use to improve your public speaking and communication skills. I know you're pressed for time in this busy world, so my goal is to provide you with useful information that's easy to understand in 10 minutes or less. 


SPEAC University is in it's initial launch phase, and more resources will be added regularly. In addition to training videos and resources created by myself, I'll also be inviting other public speaking and communication experts to share their knowledge with you. 


As I continue to develop and post content, I want to hear from YOU! What do you want to learn about? Click here to let me know what topics are most important to you and what information you would find most beneficial. I'll collect this information and use it to develop future resources for SPEAC University.


The goal of SPEAC University is to help you unlock your public speaking potential, so feel free to watch the videos as many times as you'd like and share them with others who you feel may benefit from or enjoy them. The same goes for the tips sheets and other resources. Go ahead and download them for future reference and share them with friends.


Happy learning!
