Overview of webinar

TEDX, DAVOS and G20 Presentations: what can we learn for our own presentations and speeches.

What do these styles of speeches have in common? They are all shorter than a traditional keynote; inform; entertain, are memorable and inspire discussion. They all tap in on human connection which is a powerful way to communicate.

In this interactive workshop, we will:

  • Why these types of short speeches are so effective now

  • What is the purpose of your speech; for you and your audience?

  • Discover how to structure a speech or presentation so it is impactful and memorable

  • The use of stories – and how to use them, to engage and be memorable

  • How to deliver the “Golden Nuggets”

  • How to prepare for a speech so it is natural – like a conversation, including practicing

Additional Details

The webinar will be held via ZOOM. Full joining instructions will be sent on booking.
