Media Advisory and Photo Opportunity: Seneca College Students Talk About What’s Important to Them

What’s Important to You? Corporate Communications Students Speak at Queen’s Park

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) - Students of Seneca College's Corporate Communications program will be celebrating the culmination of their studies by speaking about what is important to them, outside of Queen's Park this Friday, April 9. The latest public speaking event will have students address fellow classmates and onlookers about what is important to them.

WHO: Seneca College Corporate Communications Students
WHAT: Eager and aspiring corporate communicators training for the "real-world"
WHERE: Ontario Legislature - Queen's Park (hash-marks)
WHEN: Friday April 9, 2010 at 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Taking his students outside of the classroom to deliver speeches isn't new for David Turnbull, professor at Seneca College's Corporate Communications program. Students have previously spoken at the St. Lawrence Market, Kensington Market and Allan Gardens with topics as varied as, "who is the most influential person in history," to "how to make jam."

"It's fun to try and do these speeches in someplace where you're less comfortable," says Daniel Ongaro, a current Seneca student and Master of Ceremonies for this week's class. "Speaking in public isn't the easiest thing to do, and when you throw in loads of distractions and glares from passersby, it's easy to let your nerves get the best of you. But with all this practice, I think most of us are better able to handle it now."

A media relations team will be on site both during and after the event to answer any questions.
