Sharpening Your Skills as a Public Speaker

About the Workshop

Effective communication is a crucial part of leadership, yet many people fear public speaking. Thankfully, speaking is a skill that can be developed and strengthened. Through a combination of lecture and practical exercises led by experienced public speakers (Matt Giebler & Friends), you’ll gain a handful of tips and techniques to add to your public speaking toolbox.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be equipped to:

  • Consider multiple ways to communicate what they want to say and choose those most appropriate to their audience
  • Recognize the practical differences between spoken and written communication
  • Develop practical techniques for speaking more simply, clearly, memorably, and effectively
