“At a time when the right idea presented the right way can ripple across the world at the speed of light…public speaking is the key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, sharing knowledge and insights, and promoting a shared dream.” —Chris Anderson, Head of TED
Leaders are speaking constantly: team meetings, client calls, colleague conversations, and general problem solving with others.
But what about actual public speaking? Carefully honing thoughts and stories to share with an audience from the spotlight? What messages need to be crafted, visions shared, and stories of leadership told?
The truth is… a well-crafted talk takes time and effort, but the skills learned there echo far beyond the night of the event and the spotlight. The Speaker’s skills are enhanced and the talk itself lasts in the minds of listeners long after a weekly meeting’s agenda and action items are forgotten.
What are the stories your community needs to hear? Who are the emerging and established leaders to need to tell them?
Talks Night is a dynamic program that takes speakers from “what do I say?” to “YES! I did it!”
We dive into “stage fright,” finding your message, telling a story, and “what do I do with my hands?!”
In the end, experience either an unforgettable evening of live talks to an in-person audience or an unforgettable evening of well-crafted videos and conversation with a vibrant virtual audience.
