Presenting with Confidence

Skilled people written on yellow backgroundMany of you may have been required to do presentations in team meetings or at departmental events. No matter how many times you are asked, we know that it can make people feel nervous or a little anxious beforehand.

Robbie is running an interactive session that will cover practical and actionable steps to increase your confidence in public speaking and presentations.

    I would love to have attended this event but unable to do so. Are there any plans to run this event elsewhere, or in my area in Scotland, many thanks

    Are there likely to be any similar events held in other parts of the country for those of us who live a long way from Newcastle?

    This sounds like a great event! You could reach even more colleagues with this by live streaming this event, and others, via a platform like Zoom. That way, individuals like myself who live in Bradford and work in Halifax, can 'virtually' attend an event or watch the playback. Has anyone considered this?

      Thanks Vicky. We are looking at different ways to present our materials whilst retaining the 'local' nature of our work. The challenge is partly cost and partly that there are very few IT platforms that are truly accessible to every government department. Under the recent changes to legislation we would also need to provide sub-titles or alternatives to ensure everyone had access. But thanks for the suggestion. Also, if I remember correctly, the last time I looked at Zoom it required me to download software that wasn't permissible by our organisation.

    Hi Kelly - the event is fully booked, are you proposing to hold another in Newcastle as some of my colleagues (all based in Newcastle) would have liked to attend?

      Thank you for your comment.
      We will be planning activities for next year shortly and this is one of the sessions we are considering holding in our area. Where we hold sessions depends to an extent on where we can get suitable venues that is easy for a good cross departmental mix of departments to get to. if you offer us space we'd be happy to consider running an event.
