Public Speaking: How to Feel Good in Front of a Crowd with Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer

Public speaking. Ten percent of the population thrives on it. 10 percent would rather die. And 80 percent of us get butterflies and jitters, but make it through. No matter where you fall in this spectrum, this class is designed to help you feel more comfortable, confident and calm when speaking to a crowd. Sure, we’ll talk about body language, volume and pacing. And sure, we’ll talk about how to mitigate anxiety. We’ll talk about the writing itself and how to organize your thoughts in compelling and effective ways. But most of all, we will focus on authenticity, presence and relevance. Whether you want to run for public office or just hope to speak with more poise amongst your peers, this class offers opportunities to gain skills and self-assurance. Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer taught Public Speaking for Colorado Mesa University through University Centers of the San Juans and has been a public speaker for over twenty years. She’s spoken and keynoted for over a thousand audiences, including conventions, professional organizations, universities, school assemblies, graduation ceremonies, festivals, churches, clubs and more. Clients include USDA, Camp Coca Cola, Craig Hospital, Business & Professional Women, Western Colorado Hospice, and more. She was a member of the National Speakers Association and has won awards for performance poetry. Visit her at
