Public speaking is a vital skill in any profession. As librarians and archivists, we participate in meetings, provide instruction to the public, pitch to clients, and address colleagues regularly. Effective communication is key to conveying our messages, whether they inform, persuade, or direct.
Content matters, and so does delivery. In order to maximize our credibility and showcase our expertise in the workplace, attention must also be paid to preparation, non-verbal cues, and more.
Join us for this interactive 2-hour session that will provide practical tips for speaking before any audience. No previous experience or knowledge is required. Attendees will have an opportunity to put these tips into practice and gain constructive feedback from a supportive audience during the workshop.
Who should attend:
Anyone interested in becoming more comfortable speaking before an audience.
By the end of this program, participants will:
- Learn tips for communicating more effectively
- Gain more confidence with speaking before an audience
