Building confidence in public speaking with Catherine McGrath

Public speaking is an essential skill in many areas of work, study, advocacy, and business. From one-on-one interviews to presenting to an entire room of people, speaking clearly and with confidence can clarify your intentions and leadership goals.

For many of us, speaking in public can be stressful. Support and training will greatly assist in learning to structure and present ourselves for job interviews and for workplace events.

On Tuesday 24 August, join esteemed media figure, businesswoman, and speaking coach, Catherine McGrath as she presents our fourth She Leads workshop, ‘Building Confidence in Public Speaking’. This workshop boosts confidence and skill. The session will help you understand why speaking can make you anxious and how nerves can be counteracted. During this workshop, you will also learn the skills needed to structure, write, and deliver a speech. This is a practical session.

Please bring along a topic idea for a short presentation that we can work on in the session.
