If you'd like to improve your public speaking skills, the Young Fabians have just the event for you! Join the Young Fabians Academy for a free masterclass in public speaking on Monday 22nd March at 7:30pm.
You can register for this event here.
The value of effective communication cannot be overstated, with benefits spanning across faster career progression, better networking, boosted self confidence, improved emotional articulation, persuasive speaking, and particularly being seen as a competent leader in any situation. If you are thinking of elected office, wish you could speak up more at work meetings, wish you could be more assertive or simply want to develop your leadership skills, come along to this session.
*You will have two options*:
1) Come being prepared to speak, likely for around 2 minutes. This can be impromptu, aka taking a random table topic from the floor, or a prepared speech. Please message Cecilia beforehand so that hosts can gauge numbers and timing.
2) Simply observe, and give feedback when asked in the Zoom chat. No pressure to speak!
