Public Speaking Tips (for the Non-Public Speaker)
Fear of public speaking is the number one fear that people have and it impacts up to 75% of the population. When it comes to public speaking, do you have a fear of failure, embarrassment, inadequacy, or something else? Regardless of whether it’s in a social, volunteer or professional setting, if you’re afraid to talk in a public venue, it’s interfering with your ability to project confidence, communicate, participate or run a meeting, win someone’s trust, command a room, or make a meaningful contribution. At this session, we will explore how to overcome your public speaking fears. Through interactive exercises, feedback and concrete strategies, you will learn how to more effectively convey the messages that you want and make the impressions that you hope to achieve.

Make your Ask a Give
While many of you may feel comfortable developing relationships, when it comes time to make an “Ask" -- whatever that Ask may be -- you often fall short. Yet not being able to ask -- for that opportunity or introduction, for a volunteer or leadership role, or to be considered for a promotion or increased compensation -- can significantly impede your success. At this session, you will learn how to master the art of the Ask. The trick? Listen and get to know a person’s needs, interests and challenges. The more you know, the greater your ability to help. Rather than frame your Ask as a favor, you will learn how you can be a resource. You will leave this session armed with action steps and inspiration to be generous and provide value while learning to Ask for what will propel you and others ahead.
