All round development of the students is not only limited to academic endeavors, but it also demands the enhancement of communication skills. Effective and impressive skills at Public Speaking, is inevitable in today’s education. Unfortunately most of the students feel nervous and panic at the crucial moment. Hence, do not tend to participate and polish the public speaking skills. It is apparently one of the most feared experiences with many. The best way to alleviate these fears is to start training them at an early stage. So with a vision to enhance and pioneer the public speaking skills in our students, we have organized ‘Public Speaking Competition’.
