James McGovern, recently retired secondary school teacher, will present a lecture on the art of public speaking and debating. Over 32 years of his 37 years as a teacher, James trained the St. Mary’s CBS teams to win the national MHAI Project, the Knights of Columbanus Public speaking competition and the prestigious university competition the Phil Speaks. His book titled ‘Stand Up, Speak Out’ and sub-titled Memoir of a Public Speaking and Debating Tutor was published last month. James will give a 40 minute talk on how to research, prepare, rehearse, open and close a speech or a debate and he will also answer any questions you have.
