Public Speaking and Presentation Skills

Public speaking is one of the greatest fears of the average person (even beating out death as #2, as Jerry Seinfeld famously pointed out). Even for the experienced speaker, keeping an audience engaged and connected can be a challenge. During this interactive workshop, participants will face their fears (or, for the experienced speaker, take their skills to the next level) and gain tools for working the room, delivering presentations with charisma, and reinventing even the driest, most jargon-filled text.

Attendees will Learn

-How to tackle hesitations around public speaking
-How to boost confidence, creative thinking, and the ability to “read the room”
-How to present with engaging delivery, creativity, and rhetorical devices
