Event description
Practice public speaking and telling your story in a safe, friendly and non-judgmental space.

About this Event

How many times have you been asked the question, "So what is it you do?", only for your mouth to dry up and your heart start racing?

It's the question everyone dreads but one that you are almost guaranteed to be asked when meeting someone for the first time.

Having a well practiced and concise reply will give you confidence, put you at ease in all kinds of situations and help you get your message across quickly and effectively.

Following on from our event with Laura Westring, 'The power of words to please the ear, engage the mind and move the heart', we've created this event for Tribe Women members, to give you the chance to practice telling your story in a completely safe and supportive space.

This is hard for most of us but by committing to the practice you will gain confidence and even start to enjoy it. Remember your story makes the implicit explicit, the hidden seen, the unformed formed and the confusing clear. Your story is what you choose to tell about yourself, as succinctly and honestly as possible.

We'll begin the evening in a relaxed way, giving you time to arrive, settle in and get some soup or a hot drink. During the main part of the evening, we'll take it in turns to practice telling our stories in no more than two minutes, so everyone has a chance to be heard. We'll finish by reflecting on the evening and with a discussion around what we've experienced.

Once you've registered for this event, we'll send you a simple template you can use to prepare your talk. Together with this, and Laura's event on the 16th November you'll have everything you need to talk confidently about what you do and have done the groundwork to go on and develop a fuller, more detailed pitch.

Catering

As with all our evening events, we provide soup and bread (vegan and gluten-free), teas and coffee. Thank you for helping us to reduce waste by bringing a reusable cup.
