“Speakology: the Art and Science of Speaking — for Kids” is a new course geared to those aged 7-17, to be held at Tigerlabs, 252 Nassau Street, March 15-April 19. Speakology founder Dana Lichstrahl will run the classes from 4-6 p.m. for six consecutive Saturdays.
Speakology founder and Princeton resident Dana Lichtstrahl has since 2011 been striving to ensure that young people can verbally express themselves with grace and ease, anywhere, anytime, with anyone. In an age of “technological expression” comfortable, face-to-face communication is “essential, and critical for advancement”, she says. Deals are most often sealed, and agreements made, in person.
“Educating kids on the fundamentals of communication when they are young benefits everyone and everything.” adds Ms. Lichtstrahl, a communications professional for more than 20 years whose credits include leading the public relations and publicity campaigns for the launch of the Bank of Princeton in 2006. Tigerlabs, where the SPEAK
OLOGY classes are held, is also the home of 8ANDUP (8andup.com), another kids’ curriculum focused on entrepreneurship.
