    "I have been working on my public speaking skills for some time and have found that Marjorie Lee North's suggestion about using an outline when delivering my speech really helps me come across as more spontaneous and less scripted. During my last presentation, I practiced my speech with an outline and used the outline when I actually delivered the speech. Several colleagues told me afterward that I seemed like I knew the facts and processes extremely well and that my presentation skills were very effective."
