Braintree Town Hall
David Graves (Project Officer, Luton Cultural Services Trust)
Supports work towards Accreditation standards: 3.2.3, 3.3.1, 3.3.3
Please note the change of venue. This course was due to take place at Braintree District Museum but will now be at Braintree Town Hall (opposite the museum).
Museum staff and volunteers are often called upon to speak publicly, and it is a fear for many.
In a safe and supportive environment this course will help you to plan and deliver spoken content with more confidence. A number of practical exercises are included but there will be no uncomfortable ‘on the spot’ moments.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own notes or ideas for a talk they wish to deliver in their own museum, as there will be an opportunity to apply various techniques and receive group and directed feedback.
- feel more confident about speaking publicly
- learn tips on how to develop a talk or presentation for a museum audience
- understand how to prepare for public speaking
- explore the effects of diction, intonation, rhythm and pacing when speaking publicly
- examine the importance of gesture and non-verbal communication in public speaking
- develop strategies for building confidence and combating public speaking anxiety
- be able to plan and deliver their own talks to different audiences in a variety of venues
Morning refreshments will be available, but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
Bookings are closed for this event.
