The second annual Leadership Lecture Series, hosted by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Department of Applied Communication, will continue on Thursday, Nov. 9, with a presentation from associate professor Dr. Kristen McIntyre, who will speak on “Connection, Not Perfection: A Communication Orientation to Public Speaking.”
The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Room G of the Donaghey Student Center. The cost to attend will be $20 for guests and $5 for students with identification cards.
As an associate professor in the Applied Communication Department, McIntyre teaches an introductory communication course and directs the Communication Skill Center, a free student resource that helps with the various stages of the speech development process.
Outside of her work at the university, McIntyre has co-authored publications that have appeared in several academic journals, including “Communication Quarterly” and “Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education.”
Community and business leaders, employees, and members of the UA Little Rock community are encouraged to attend the lecture to gain knowledge of how communication can positively impact the workplace and community.
