Speaking in Public

Thursday 16th November


The Women in Social Housing Yorkshire and Humber branch invite you to join them for a unique experience to learn about speaking with confidence in public with Olwen Edwards at the beautiful Cooper Art Gallery.

“Do you find it hard to speak in public to introduce yourself to others effectively?”

A good one minute networking introduction can help you to feel confident to speak in public, make new contacts, win new clients, engage potential investors, recruit great team members and explain or even impress your friends and family.

Let Olwen show you in three simple steps how to construct your 1 minute networking introduction. The forth step is to practise afterwards with each other. This process works for when you speak with contacts, clients, investors, your team and even people you’ve just met at a dinner party. Let’s keep it simple and be effective.

At the end of this practical WISH session you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the basic elements, the building blocks of your personal unique 1 minute introduction.
  • Create a 1 minute introduction for yourself, which you can tailor for your company or your job or product or services,
  • Deliver your 1 minute introduction for optimum effect.
  • Practise and hone your skills directly afterwards with fellow participants, improving your confidence.

Olwen Edwards has been delivering talks, training groups and individuals for over 27 years, with a career that includes practicising as a solicitor, working as an Independent Financial Advisor for a National Company, her accounts included Johnson and Johnson and Rolls Royce. She trained Trainee Solicitors in finance and business skills, in Personal Work Management for the College of Law and for Kaplan Altior for over 20 years and has been teaching the Alexander Technique for the last 15 years.

There will be light refreshments to end with an opportunity for networking.

Remember to book Olwen’s other session on The Alexander Technique with us in October!

Tickets are £5 for WISH Members and £10 for Non WISH Members. Tickets are limited to 30 so book your place asap to avoid disappointment.
