For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
*Recommended for experienced research staff*
As your career develops you can find yourself having to speak to an ever-wider range of audiences, from university committees to members of the public to commercial partners. The variety can be deeply satisfying, but it also poses challenges. You have to adapt your communication style to very different contexts, but how is that possible while remaining true to yourself? It is vital to stay calm and appear confident, but what happens when the audience is unfamiliar or combative? How do you make an impact and ensure that your message is heard, whatever the occasion? This highly practical session, run by VOX Coaching, will introduce you to techniques to help you perform powerfully, memorably and authentically whenever and wherever you are in the spotlight.
This workshop will enable you to:
Get your message across with confidence when presenting to unfamiliar audiences
Adapt your communication style to the context
Appear calm and confident when speaking in stressful situations
Lunch will be provided
