Whether speaking at a conference or presenting your work in a team meeting, public speaking is a critical skill for creatives. And now, more than ever before, we need to be able to present online.
Feel intimidated? You’re not alone. Join us for a mini workshop to learn tools and techniques to set you up for success next time you need to present remotely.
How should you prepare? How can you keep your audience engaged? What happens if something goes wrong? We’ll answer these questions and more. Come with your questions and be prepared to participate.
You’ll leave this workshop with:
A framework for crafting engaging presentations — both in-person and online
Tips for preparing before you present
Tools to help you calm your nerves before you speak
Techniques you can implement to project confidence while on camera
This will be an interactive session! Bring something to write with. We always recommend post-its if you have them!
