- Purpose and Preparation: What is your purpose for speaking? What do you want your audience to think, feel or do differently as a result of hearing you speak?

Learn techniques to help you look like you own the stage and feel confident when you stand in front of an audience.
- Question Time Techniques: Even the best speakers can fall apart in Question Time. What if you get asked a question you don’t know the answer to? Or if you have a heckler intent on de-railing you?
