Second in our Public Speaking series, this workshop looks at how we as people automatically act differently with different people. Keeping that in consideration, we realize that we *need* to act differently with our peers as we do with our professors, advisors, or bosses. Extrapolating from this premise, we realize that we also need to act differently with prospective employers.
With that in mind, this day aims to get people to learn how to shift their characters from who they feel comfortable being, to someone who they've never thought of being. This will exercise their ability to change who they are at any stage, in a snap. This will help them communicate their own personal brand in different ways to different people, in order to make the same point through different perspectives.

The 3 exercises covered here are
- Voice Projection (saying "aah" loudly, letting the voice come from your chest, building the vocal chords)
- Enunciation (Saying "Twenty dwarves took turns doing handstands on the carpet" and emphasizing on every syllable. These are a set of the most common syllables used in a talk.)
- Reading from scripts (famous speeches and monologues given to participants to read in public while acting out. This helps them to step into someone else's shoes).

The first two of these, if carried out on a regular basis can be very effective in warming up the speaker before their talk. The third is very useful, but also great fun with friends!
