Practical Skills to Build Your Effectiveness as a Public Speaker

To register please scroll down to the Register Online section and begin by selecting your organization’s billing province (for taxation calculation).

Does speaking in front of a group of people make your heart beat faster, your hands sweat and your knees go weak? Do you want to have a greater impact on your audience? Are you stuck with speaking AT a screen and not hearing your audience? Not knowing if anyone is even still there?

The impact we have is largely based on how well we communicate our ideas and engage our audience. Whether we are providing information to an internal audience or making an impassioned plea externally, we need to be confident in our ability to express ourselves.

In addition, we are now presenting online. In this workshop you will discover ways to create and deliver virtual and live presentations that are impactful, interactive and effective.  You will get tips and tricks on how to make the technology work for you, how to set up your “studio” to look more professional and increase your credibility and how to use online tools to engage your audience.

This two-day workshop is specifically designed to reduce the anxiety of public speaking and help you gain competence and confidence. Gain practical tips that you can apply immediately. You will participate in a number of different exercises and also have a chance to do a mini presentation and gain immediate feedback and coaching.

This is a two-day virtual live workshop.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
