Education: How to Craft a Presentation

September 27, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20 – $30

If Lehman Brothers had been Lehman Brothers and Sisters, we wouldn’t have gotten into the mess of 2008. (An unidentified woman CEO.)

Okay, women, it’s time to step up to the plate—um, er, the podium—and start talking. Talking in board rooms, at town halls, PTO’s, and TEDx talks. It’s time to step up as experts, knowledge purveyors, and leaders in our chosen fields. It’s time to leverage our passions to influence, educate, and inspire.

If you’re thinking, “I have nothing to say,” you’d be wrong. If you’re saying, “I’m really bad at public speaking,” you can become better. If you have important ideas to share but the thought of public speaking, “makes me quake in my cowgirl boots,” then you’re in good company. (Most people fear public speaking more than death.)

Maybe it’s time to take a stand (literally) for your ideas, passions, and expertise. Make yourself heard. Distinguish yourself from the crowd of noise out there.

As a business owner, giving talks means people perceive you as an expert. They open doors and create new professional connections. Even you take yourself more seriously.

In this 3-hour presentation we’ll discover:

  • what makes a good talk
  • what gets in the way
  • a general template for how to structure a talk (based on the TED model)
  • how to mine our lives for information to include in our talks
  • how to have speaking presence

You are completely capable of more than you imagined. Public speaking is one way to leverage who you are, and what you know.
