Speaking to Engage: The only workshop on public speaking you’ll ever need to take!

You’re scheduled to give a presentation, pitch to investors, or present your research…and you’re petrified. This workshop will help you to get past your fear of public speaking, and use humour to make your presentations and talks truly memorable – for all the right reasons!

David Nihill has walked – and talked – in your shoes. David went from being deathly afraid of standing in front of an audience to performing stand-up routines, winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses and becoming one of the world’s leading experts on public speaking. He has been described by Forbes as “one of the best public speaking coaches out there” and he and his company of ghostwriters are behind some of the world’s most high profile CEO’s talks. His book remains one of the highest rated in the world on the subject.

In this highly energetic, engaging and funny workshop, David will share the techniques of the world’s best TED speakers. Audiences will learn:

  • How to craft a story and content that your audience will want to listen to.
  • How and when to include the best parts of your presentation for greatest impact.
  • How to deal with stage fright and flop sweat.
  • How to avoid going blank on stage.
  • How to master the two most important parts of your performance: timing and delivery.
  • Tons of never heard before actionable tips to apply immediately in your next public speaking engagement.

Take this class and you’ll enjoy presenting to people, they’ll enjoy listening to you, and crucially they’ll happily retain your message.
