Outside Speaker Evaluation Essay

728 words - 3 pages

The outside speaker that I saw took place on Monday November eleventh two thousand and thirteen, in the Saint Ignatius Science Center room one hundred and fifteen. The speaker of this presentation was Tom McDonnell elected CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Throughout McDonnell’s speech he talked about his experience attending Rockhurst University when it was an all boys school and his life after he graduated form Rockhurst and started his career. I thought that the speech was very well organized because I would assume that he made very good valid points, and when I say assume, I will elaborate on that more later on in my paper.

In my opinion McDonnell talking about what he did in his life, such as schooling and work experience, was very appropriate to mention because it made his speech more creditable. Throughout McDonnell’s speech he didn’t use a lot of “ums” or “likes” with showed me that he was confident in what he was...
