Gulf Gate Public Library
This will be a one-day, two-part workshop – You may join for just the morning session for a typical 3 hour workshop (9:30-12:30) where we’ll discuss the ins and outs of public speaking. The afternoon portion will then be voluntary for those who would like to return after lunch to actually practice speaking to our group of friendly faces.
Read Linda’s note about the day here.
Public speaking strikes fear into the hearts of many – maybe it’s happened to you. You’ve been asked to speak in public about your organization and you have no clue where to begin. Even if you could find a clue, you can’t imagine actually putting yourself into such an intimidating position!
Linda Bruno has been where you are…the first time she was asked to speak in public (working as a volunteer with an organization), someone asked her how she felt about her assignment. In Linda’s words, “I think I’m going to be sick!”
If you’ve ever felt that way, you’ll want to attend Linda’s face-to-face workshop, Public Speaking ~ Let’s Talk! Since that fateful first speaking assignment, Linda has gone on to not only speak in public, but has received her CTM designation with Toastmasters, develops and conducts her own training workshops, and presents keynote speeches to various groups.
In this fun-filled face-to-face workshop, you’ll not only learn the nuts and bolts of public speaking, you’ll have an opportunity to rejoin the group after lunch to practice those new skills. The class (and Linda) will then provide feedback on what went well and what might be improved. In the process, you will already be one step closer to feeling confident about your public speaking skills!
This workshop will improve your comfort level with public speaking and will also give you some tips on how to use your newfound skills for the benefit of your organization. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to grow!
