Social work is all about communication – engaging people, sharing information, and making a connection. We are comfortable serving our clients in this way – so what is it about the idea of “public speaking” that seems so scary? Strong public speaking skills are an essential part of any social worker’s toolkit, no matter what your position or experience, or where you practice. You’re invited to be part of this interactive workshop aimed at improving your public speaking skills! You’ll learn about different types of public speaking, what makes a speaker effective, and how you can overcome your fears to get your message across successfully every time. We’ll also discuss how to connect with the diverse learning styles of your audience and make strategic use of aids to support your objectives. Want to be an amazing public speaker? The floor is yours – join us!

You will receive the access link the day before the webinar.
