PSA Staffordshire April Event
Wed 5 April 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Don’t miss April's PSA Staffordshire event - How to Survive and Thrive as a Speaker and how to weave your unique stories into your talk for maximum impact.
As speakers we want people to believe in us and our ideas. We need to entertain and engage.
This month highly respected international speaker Christine Marsh will help you to survive and thrive on how your audience judges you and your talk -by showing you the Human Barcode and its impact on unconscious bias - and to ensure your message is received, understood and actioned you will receive your own Judgement Call Filter Checklist.
Neil McCoy-Ward is an entrepreneur based in Coventry and has been speaking since 2008 in the Sales & Training industry. He will be showing you how to get your point across more effectively through the power of storytelling and we will explore ways of capturing your own compelling stories.
When you take the decision that you want to become a speaker, in whatever guise, you will be facing an audience with differing levels of knowledge on your subject. They will judge you against their own experience and the opinions they have formed to date.
Christine will help you develop the ability to process the judgements of others – it is your choice whether you accept them, reject or leave them open for future consideration.
Christine’s work ensures that critical issues are identified and addressed that have either a negative or positive impact on performance in the workplace. Her background experience is based on understanding complex situations in senior management roles – from new product development & supply chain to learning & development and HR in the highly competitive retail trade.
Neil will talk on the importance of including storytelling in our speeches and trainings, as this often creates a deeper understanding within our delegates, and leaves a lasting image in their minds of the takeaway message.
We will also brainstorm on how to bring your own stories to life, so come along prepared to create new unique elements which will enhance your talks and make them even more powerful for your audience.
