Professional Empowerment Workshop Series: Public Speaking Tips: How to Tell Your Story with Style
Public Speaking Tips: How to Tell Your Story with Style
The third event of the Professional Empowerment Workshop Series: Public Speaking Tips: How to Tell Your Story with Style!
The goal of the series is to provide targeted professional development opportunities for career track faculty, appointed professionals, and staff with an emphasis on topics which are particularly relevant to underrepresented groups.
We’ll break the ice with some public speaking games and hear a personal story. Afterwards, we’ll deconstruct how our speaker wrote the story and prepared to share it. Participants will be given writing prompts to draft their own personal stories. We’ll review general public speaking tips and Toastmaster style critiques (including recommendations for body language, eye contact and speech organization). After some de-stress warm ups for public speaking participants will be given an opportunity to share their story with the group. Finally, we’ll share information about joining UA Toastmasters.
Facilitated by Courtney Coffey, Ph.D., Coordinator, Grants & Contracts
