Purposeful Presenting
Workshop | YCN Library — For our members and programme participants

This three-hour session is for those seeking to super-size their presentational skills, with lots of practical new approaches to take away and apply.

Many of us don't look forward to speaking publicly. But we're often called on to do so — formally, informally, to big groups or small ones — often aiming to get people on board to our point of view. And we all instinctively know a good public speaker when we see one; they make it look easy, and seem so natural doing it. But if we want to get better, where do we begin?

Ultimately it's all about being ourselves, and consciously approaching any kind of presentation with a practical framework and in mind and a willingness to bend it. This session is about achieving just that, and being open to trying new approaches that can immediately make a difference to the impression we make.

What we'll cover:

• How to relax and be yourself in the limelight
• Tips and tricks for impact
• Authenticity and self-awareness
• The role of the script and slides
• The power of the pause
• Understanding your audience

How the session will be structured:

Expect an energising and practical session through which lots of tools and techniques are shared and tried out.

Who the session is for:

Anyone who wants to refine or build on their existing presentation smarts.
