White-Knuckled Speaker: Tips to minimize presentation anxiety
Presenter: Trisha Griffin-Carty
Tuesday, March 15th - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Sound familiar? You know your material cold, but the idea of making a presentation brings waves of doubt and discomfort.  

The White Knuckled Speaker is designed for anyone who wants to speak more confidently in one-on-one conversations or with large or small groups.

This interactive session will help participants increase their confidence by providing tools to understand and manage presentation anxiety in a supportive learning environment.

Specifically, those who attend will do the following:

  • Review a model (research, write and practice) that works for every presentation
  • Identify specific factors and symptoms associated with presentation anxiety
  • Challenge internal negative statements as a way to reduce anxiety
  • Develop a list of practical suggestions to reduce nervousness using planning and delivery tips

Registration will be open in February for the session listed above.
