Present yourself with confidence
Public speaking and mastering difficult questions
This half-day course will teach you to present with authenticity and learn strategies for answering difficult questions with confidence. Our course leader, Annette Kramer PhD, developed her workshop process over years of teaching theatre in New York and at an Ivy League university and almost a decade on PwC’s thought leadership team. Annette's approach on confidence is "learn by doing" and this is reflected in her technique which is practical, collaborative and fully interactive.
Moderate with confidence
In addition to moderating panels, organisers are increasingly asking industry professionals to moderate whole events, offering another opportunity for females to be better represented on stage. This course is designed to equip you with the right skills to keep events on time and on topic as an event moderator, as well as the key component of moderating panel discussions. The course includes script preparation for opening remarks and links, as well as techniques to keep events and panels lively and informative.
Become a better panellist
Panel discussions are an integral part of industry event programmes, whether as part of a larger conference or the central component of smaller events. They provide an excellent entry-point for women to raise their profile at industry events and gain public speaking experience. This half-day course examines techniques and gives practical advice for getting the best out of panel discussion opportunities.
