The Buckley School of Public Speaking recently opened its Greenville office on Manly Street. The school, which specializes in teaching professionals everything from dinner manners to public speaking to dressing the part, will also hold its first Greenville seminar in Clemson University’s MBA School in the ONE Building downtown during the summer.
The Camden-based school chose to open a Greenville business office because its new president, Caroline Avinger, lives in Greenville. Avinger took over the school last year and wants to run the school from the Upstate, but will still operate classes out of the Camden location.
“Greenville is such a hub for activity,” said Avinger. “There are so many entrepreneurs in the area and many of the businesses we have done seminars for, such as Fluor and BMW, are in the area. It’s [Greenville] a great place to draw people to with so much to do such as Falls Park and the Peace Center.”
Like its Camden location, the Greenville office will offer private coaching and interview skills, but the new location will use Clemson’s MBA space at the ONE building to hold executive seminars.
