27 March, 6.30-8.00pm
House of Parliament, Committee Room 10
Women report fearing public speaking more than men do, but is this really about being afraid? Audiences hold women public speakers to a different set of standards; however, women have particular advantages as public speakers that they can learn how to take advantage of to subvert expectations, from content and delivery to their appearance. In this lively workshop, you can learn from a highly esteemed expert in this field, Denise Graveline, about the common challenges and mistakes made in public speaking, as well as the skills and tactics you need to become a successful public speaker.
We want to ensure the workshop successfully addresses your specific public speaking concerns. Feel free to email Denise Graveline to let her know what your primary challenges as women in public speaking are so she can incorporate these issues in her workshop.
Please, email her well in advance of the workshop using the subject ’27 March Speaking Workshop’ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
