Live and In Person at The Riveter in Seattle:
Own the Stage: Public Speaking Intensive—TED Talk Style

Have you ever wondered what idea you would share if you were invited to do a TED Talk? How would you structure your story? How would you practice? How would you hone your delivery so that you look and sound amazing in the final performance (and video)? Join us as we share our imagined-TED-Talks-in-progress to learn and practice mastering the art of public speaking — TED Talk style. The same principles that make a great TED Talk can be applied to all forms of public speaking—whether you’re sharing an update in a team meeting or giving a big presentation. Learn how to capture the audience’s attention through great storytelling, how to appear confident even if you’re terrified, how to make engaging slides, how to rehearse, and how to stand, gesture, and speak in a way that will best support your words. This course will help you step on any stage and knock it out of the park! You can attend all sessions or drop-in. Pre-registration is required, email join. $45/class.
