These notes are taken from Chapter 16, Media Interviews, News Conferences, and Speeches, in the text Public Relations Writing and Media Techniques.

The topics in this chapter included: Media Interviews, News Conferences, Media Tours and Press Parties, The Art of Speechwriting, Giving a Speech or Presentation, and Speaker Training.

The most interesting part of this chapter, in my opinion, was the section on giving a speech or presentation. Since I have been involved in speech groups in the past, it was a refreshing reminder to learn about the proper technique on giving a speech.
