How to present – How to network – How to enhance your career

Organiser: Roy Sheppard, United Kingdom

  • Do you brighten a room when you walk in, or when you leave?
  • What do your colleagues say about you behind your back?

How you are perceived has a profound effect on your ability to attract professional opportunities into your life.

This thought-provoking and entertaining session will provide you with practical ideas, new skills and strategies to help you develop your career.

For example, everyone knows that being well-connected and meeting new people is important, but what if you’re a quiet type who dreads networking and the ‘torture’ of making small talk? You can learn how to appear more confident whilst remaining true to yourself.

Similarly, the best future opportunities invariably go to those who know how to present their ideas to large and small groups more clearly and confidently.

In this packed session, Roy Sheppard will also share the secrets that professional speakers use to deliver engaging and impactful presentations.
