Public speaking made easy – the videos of the speaking out events are up

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010 at 9:23 am

Back in February, my friend Laura North – after some insistent prodding of mine – organized the first Speaking Out event. Speaking Out events are there to help people – especially women – overcome the initial fear of public speaking and give them tips and pointers on how to become a great public speaker.

My session was on how to inspire as a speaker:

Laura also put up the other videos of Katie Streten on reasons not to like public speaking and David Bell on public speaking in different contexts.

The next Speaking Out event will be on the 20th of April. The Greater London Authority Women’s Network will host a 2 hour workshop session with Katie, Agnieszka Lenton and me. The topics so far are improving your public speaking skills, controlling outward appearance of nerves, speaking in hostile situations and overcoming the tendency to avoid public speaking.

You can find out all about the speaking out events on the homepage:, there is a blog, a Facebook page and of course a Twitter presence at @speaking_out.
