Part 1 – Learning the theory

Have you heard the statistic – according to an American study 75% of people fear public speaking more than they fear death?!

Whether it’s standing up in front of hundreds of people at a conference, speaking at your department meeting of 50, or sharing a presentation with your boss – public speaking fills most people with dread and is something many people actively avoid doing.

Yet public speaking is recognised as one of the most important skills that can elevate your career. Effective public speaking skills indicate creativity, critical thinking skills, leadership abilities, poise and professionalism - qualities which are very valuable for the job market. Speaking at events and conferences is a good way of building credibility.

About the workshop series

This two-part workshop series, Master the art of public speaking, has been designed specifically for early career professionals in air quality, to help you unlock your full potential as a confident and captivating speaker.

Led by seasoned experts, this workshop series combines practical techniques, interactive exercises, and constructive feedback to help you conquer your nerves and deliver impactful presentations. You'll gain the tools and confidence you need to engage and inspire different types of audiences with your work in air quality.

  • Part 1 of this workshop series will be exploring the general rules of public speaking and presenting data, as well as taking a deep dive into how to deliver presentations to non-expert audiences. 
  • Part 2 will be held 2 weeks later on Wednesday 5th July and will give you the chance to apply this new knowledge and practice your skills in a safe and supportive environment. We highly recommend attending both parts of the workshop series to get the most of out the experience. Please visit this page to book onto Part 2.
