NAWIC ACT | Public Speaking Workshop

Do you find yourself dreading public speaking but it’s an important part of your role or is the difference between your career standing still or moving ahead?

      §  Imagine being able to deliver a confident speech or message to educate and inspire your team and organisation to embrace a new opportunities or strive to achieve their goals. 

   §  Wouldn’t it be great to have the skills and self-belief to speak confidently at occasion…a toolbox talk, a job interview, or your colleague’s farewell or accepting an award?

Public speaking is not about following a “textbook” technique or adopting someone else’s gestures, body language or speaking effects. You already know how to present your ideas in a naturally effective, relaxed way. You do it with friends and family all the time. Yet many of us feel nervous and dread when we’re the centre of attention or communicating to large groups. Presenting with confidence is a powerful and important life skill that can be learned, and with practice, honed to deliver success in your current role and throughout your career.
