    Tips and tactics for speaking confidently in group settings with specific methods to reduce your jitters

    It is said that many of us fear speaking in front of others more than death.

    While public speaking can be a nerve-wracking experience, it can be extremely beneficial for your career. When you can effectively speak at meetings, give presentations to audiences large and small, and even share your thoughts without time to prepare, you are often perceived as being a better leader than those who remain silent.

    If talking in front of a group is difficult or makes you uncomfortable, there are steps you can take to become a more polished and less fearful public speaker.

    This webinar provides you with tips and tactics for preparing a presentation, using body language and vocal variety to keep your audience’s attention, and specific methods to reduce your jitters.

    Whether you’re an inexperienced public speaker or someone who wants to boost their confidence and delivery, this is a great opportunity to improve your skills in all manner of public speaking situations.

    Attend this 90-minute webinar to develop a greater understanding of various aspects of diversity and inclusion (D&I), and how they impact everyday interactions and overall workplace culture. Get the opportunity to assess your diversity intelligence and recognize the business imperative for D & I initiatives in organizations.

You’ll also explore new strategies and tools, and increase your understanding through stories and a case study.


    What You Will Cover

    • Identify the barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion that stem from perceptions
    • Discover the relationship between emotional intelligence and diversity
    • Develop an understanding of bias and explore what drives exclusionary behaviors
    • Recognize intersectionality (overlapping threats) and how it relates to systemic biases
