Engaging Your Audience with Tony Sloman | Monday May 08, 2017 | 5.30pm

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel"  - Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist

‘Engaging Your Audience’ is a practical workshop to explore 3 key techniques you can use to feel more confident as a speaker, reduce your nerves and inspire your listeners.

Conceiving and delivering a message to an audience are often
misaligned processes. The formality of delivery is something that unhinges many people. They lose the core connection to their material and are left feeling an opportunity has slipped by or that they could not really portray themselves the way they really want to. Sometimes it is nerves, other times it is about our fundamental right to speak.

 “There are two types of speakers. Those who get nervous and those who are liars” - Mark Twain

Tony will demonstrate how nerves play a role in our speaking; the physiological response to being ‘exposed’ and the corresponding mindset. Together we will discover what we can do to accept our vulnerability, to embrace and utilise our nervous response constructively. Through a blended learning approach, we will explore how it feels when you ‘embody’ your messages, when you own your space and relish in your opportunities to speak out.

Come and join this experiential session to learn how to own your authenticity as a speaker and what to activate to achieve it – with passion and purpose!
