Event description

About this Event

Your ticket fee includes breakfast, lunch, tea and coffee.

It may not be clear to everyone why public speaking training for women is important. It's not because women are less confident or less competent public speakers than men; it's because audiences prefer men.

A woman can tell the same jokes as a man and be viewed not only as having lower status, but as less capable. Women are judged more harshly - by audiences of men and women - on how they sound, how they dress and how they come across. Women have to work harder to be considered funny, likeable, knowledgeable or insightful.

In an ideal world women wouldn't have to come up with strategies to overcome audience bias but, until the promised day comes, you can help yourself by helping them get over it. Disarm your audience quickly with the cool, the quirky and the unexpected. Then watch them relax into their seats as they realise they were wrong to doubt you all along.

Join other professional women for a welcoming and informative day of speech writing for powerful public speaking training. Leave confident with practical methods and techniques that can immediately be applied to your next speech, pitch or presentation.

Who is this training for?

Professional women, self-employed women, students and community organisers can all benefit from this workshop.

Why is this training for women?

In an age where conference organisers, university societies and talk show hosts never seem to have any trouble finding male experts to share their expertise, I want to help more women take centre stage and raise the level of everyone's conversation.

What are some of the learning outcomes?

  • Explore the challenges women face as public speakers
  • Learn how to prepare for your audience and venue

  • Learn the pitfalls to avoid and arm yourself with techniques for success

What have other people enjoyed about the workshop?

"Laura was really engaging and listened to our individual needs and concerns. The course was very well-run and it was obvious that a lot of prep had gone in to making it so smooth and enjoyable. I loved the checklist approach as I take notes but often lose them or can't decipher them. The handouts will be really helpful and I'm inspired and excited to write my next speech."

"The content, delivery and timing were all perfectly pitched and adapted as we went along. This is an incredibly difficult thing to do with such a diverse group with different hopes, fears and experiences. Laura effortlessly anticipated, understood and reacted to the needs of all participants."
