WTF is…Public Speaking?!

by 101 Ways, 01 April 2019

Date: Thursday 28th February 2019

Location: Not On The High Street

Time: 6pm- 9pm

At the next WTF event, everyone in the room is going to be naked.

…Well, not strictly, but you might be told to imagine that they are.

Anyway, now that we have your attention, we’d love for you to join us for our next 101-minute workshop on one of the people’s biggest fears – public speaking. Before you make a French exit, we believe you should take Sarah Jeffers’ advice: ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway.’

Whether your goal is to grace the exclusive TEDX stage with your theories on technology and social construction or simply give a presentation to your work colleagues without turning 50 shades of rouge, this 101 Ways masterclass is for you.

The WTF crew is luckily made up of veteran public orator (and band frontwoman) Emma Hopkinson-Spark who’ll share her tips on confidence, delivery and connection to help you master the basics.

We’ll then hand over to our guest speaker Wendy Orr who’ll give you the opportunity to stand up and speak for 101 seconds. While that may sound daunting at first, it will be an entirely welcoming, safe space where we can learn from and support each other during the process. We promise you’ll be channelling your inner Michelle Obama in no time. Mic-dropping, presidential arm candy, optional.

The evening will be held at the swanky Not On The High Street head offices in Richmond. So come and join us on Thursday, 28 February 2019 at 6.30pm and leave with ability to capture the next audience you encounter. Even if happens to be at your local supermarket.

Places are limited, so sign up now to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you there!

what community members are saying about our events..

"It was a super valuable event for me, definitely something different being more interactive and I was actually engaged with the wider group at this event, rather than just speaking to one person. The Speakers stayed and mingled with the group too"
