The Boardroom to the Stage - Presenting and Public Speaking
Thu 23 March 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
About the session:
This session, held at the creative working space Net.Works., focuses on everything that happens as soon as one steps in front of a boardroom meeting or bigger audiences. How come we are fine having a 1-2-1 conversation but get incredibly nervous in front of many? We will be looking into techniques in order to control nerves and come across as confident in front of any audience. Learn tools easy to implement and techniques to improve your impact & presence. The content is based on the concept of experiential learning, which is a high-impact educational training practice. It’s a learner-centred approach that will get you off your chair, actively involved and responsible for your progress in a safe training environment.
Annik is the founder of PONY Express Speakers. She started PONY Express in 2011 off the back of having over 30 years experience in being scared of public speaking and the idea that everyone can fall in love with public speaking and use it as a tool for business & career growth. Setting out to give glossophobics (that’s people scared of public speaking to you and I) the opportunity to gain confidence in a fun and powerful way, PONY Express was born. PONY Express has helped thousands of entrepreneurs to successfully pitch for investment and funding, gain the confidence to push their business from home office to the stage, speak on TEDx stages or landing big corporate contracts. Now one of the leading Speaking Clubs in London, PONY Express runs a variety of events and trainings, from their monthly club night, a beginners day, an intensive 2 day training and a 6-month speaking accelerator programme.
The PONY Express Approach:
PONY Express does public speaking & pitch training in an experiential way so you can develop clarity on communicating your brand and vision to influence your audience and those investors. Everyone can overcome nerves and be confident in front of even large audiences. Our aprroach is a high-impact educational training practice. It’s a learner-centered approach that gets you off your chair, out of your comfort zone, actively involved and responsible for your progress in a safe environment. This training format guarantees an immediate and noticeable difference in your communication approach.
The philosophy behind PONY Express is the concept of risking something. The 1860s American PONY Express was a mail delivery service where young PONY riders like Buffalo Bill risked their lives delivering a message. Same today. It might feel daunting to present in the boardroom, pitch to a panel of serious investors or a room full of industry peers but with the right training, nothing has to be left to chance.
