Public speaking [cue dramatic music that makes people nervous] is not something most people look forward to. However, regardless of your profession chances are you’re going to have to do some public speaking – why not polish up those skills now?
Find Your Voice: Becoming a Confident Public Speaker is specifically designed for people wanting to polish up their public speaking skills – whether you’re looking to hold a meeting, submit to a conference, give a presentation or just talk to two of your coworkers at once without feeling anxious. The best speakers are authentic and connect with their audience, so we’ll help you find that best version of yourself and develop the ability to confidently stand in front of an audience.
Attendees will also have the option (not required!) to bring a 90-second to 2-minute presentation or mission prompt to work on in class where you will receive individual feedback from our facilitators. Expect to DO more than sit back and listen, and get ready to stop fearing public speaking!
