Public Speaking and Virtual Presentations

Monday, November 9 –

Event Time: 6:00 - 9:00pm

This program, held via live Zoom session, will help participants gain the confidence and skills to adapt to the ever-evolving need to conduct business online. A new addition to this program is the emphasis on speaking and presenting on online platforms such as Zoom. There will be ample opportunity for interaction and feedback from the instructor and participants. Nonprofit leaders, business leaders, educators, municipal officials, members of the clergy and others interested in becoming a more effective speaker are invited to register. Program participants will learn how to relieve the stress associated with speaking publicly; become skilled in speaking with or without notes; and support their message most efficiently. They’ll learn to think quickly, speak logically and engage an audience; use the power of personalized storytelling to increase audience attention; and understand that we are surrounded by public speaking opportunities.
