Practical Workshop: Unlock the power of public speaking

Seminar Brief

If the idea of public speaking makes you want to throw up then rest assured, you’re not alone. However, for a School Business Leader, public speaking is a superpower that is often overlooked. Becoming more confident in this area will help you to establish credibility, amplify your voice and open doors that you don’t even know exist yet! In this extended workshop, you will work alongside Laura and a small group of SBLs to help you conquer your fears, learn how to script and prepare for a presentation as well as develop your own public speaking style.


PLEASE NOTE: This session runs over two seminar slots and all workshop participants will be asked to bring a 3 minute presentation with them to the session.

Laura will be in touch with all the info & guidance when registration is confirmed.


In this seminar LAURA will explore:

•   How you can effectively script and prepare presentations that resonate with your audience and can be delivered in a style that works for you
•   Practical techniques to engage your audience and help you get your point across effectively
•   How to speak with confidence, clarity and authenticity



Take home points:

•    Practical tips and techniques for scripting, preparing, and delivering impactful presentations
•    Skills for incorporating humour and personality and leveraging feedback to enhance your public speaking effectiveness
