The Speakers Edge is an interactive and engaging workshop where students will learn how to design and structure a powerful talk, the key elements of being a confident speaker and the tools to successfully engage an audience.

This is a transformative public speaking workshop for schools wanting to empower and inspire students to know they have a voice, the confidence to use that voice and the courage to step up to new opportunities they may otherwise shy away from.

It is available as a 1/2 day or 1 day workshop and comes with the option of a Day 2 where students will present short TED-style talks to put the theory and their learning into practice.

We tailor the content to support the needs and challenges specific to your students and school.

This workshop includes:

• Key skills to be a confident, compelling and authentic speaker

• The power of stories, pauses and the power-start unpacked

• How to engage and bond with an audience

• Guidelines to stimulate your creative side when using PowerPoint

• Unleash slides that dazzle and awe audiences

• Understanding audience cues and questions and how to respond

• Structuring a presentation for optimal engagement
