Take the Tension out of Presentations with the Kogod Center for Business Communications at the Library

Professional Communications

The Kogod Center for Business Communications now offers a Professional Communications service in Room 1 of the Research Commons at Bender Library to provide help with presentations, public speaking, and business writing.

This service is available to all AU students, so no matter what your major is, come by for personal assistance with your professional communications!

The service runs March 25–April 25, 2014, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3:30–5:30 p.m. and Fridays 12–2 p.m. Appointments are preferred, but drop-ins are accepted as space allows. Make an appointment online or by calling 202-885-1920.

Visit Professional Communications to

  • Practice a presentation or speech and receive supportive, insightful suggestions
  • Overcome public-speaking jitters
  • Improve the clarity and organization of your slides or poster papers

Professional Communications also provides help with all types of business and workplace writing—including reports, memos, emails, and cover letters—at every stage from first draft through revisions and on to the polished final product.

Prefer a workshop approach? Kogod Center for Business Communications Director Bonnie Auslander will be giving a workshop on Thursday, April 3 at 4pm in the Library Training & Events Room (115). “Speak Up” will cover public speaking skills for any situation from academic presentations to wedding toasts.

Don’t delay! It’s not too late to improve your presentation or public speaking skills this spring, and Professional Communications can provide the help you need.
