Dynamic Public Speaking

How to effectively deliver your key messages.

About this event

What you say is important, but how you express yourself determines your effectiveness as a speaker and helps achieve the outcomes you want. Whether meeting with the community, providing updates to leaders and staff, or connecting with volunteers, public speaking and developing presentations are an essential part of our work. This seminar will help you develop your individual style, improve your delivery, and learn how to effectively respond to questions.

Topics include:

  • Preparing and practicing presentations for both in-person and virtual settings
  • Understanding how your body language and tone affect speech delivery
  • Organizing your message
  • Delivering effective speeches
