I'm Tony Smith, Ph.D. As owner and sole proprietor of Public Speaking 411 Consulting, I provide public speaking coaching, training, motivation, and guidance in a clear and engaging manner. Whether you're speaking at work, in the classroom, or at a public event (wedding, graduation, awards ceremony, etc.), I can help! I also provide help with job interviews, and managing public speaking fear and anxiety. I work with groups, businesses, and individuals, with services tailored to clients' specific needs, and I can meet via Skype or in person.
As a professor, author, and consultant with over 20 years' experience in public speaking, I love helping people succeed. I teach communication and public speaking courses at St. Petersburg College in Florida. I was listed in The Princeton Review's The Best 300 Professors In America, and was recognized as the third-highest-rated professor in the country on the Rate My Professors website in 2012. I'm the author of Finish Your Damn Speech! (available in eBook, Paperback, and
Audio Formats, or as a Video Series -- check out the YouTube Trailer!), and I've worked in the communication and public speaking fields since 1994. I live near Clearwater, Florida, and enjoy teaching, listening to music, and playing basketball.
