Being able to speak to others with confidence and influence and persuade are invaluable skills, helping us to lead and getting us taken seriously by our peers. These days, communication and public speaking goes beyond the conference platform and meeting room to speaking on video camera and also on podcasts. Little wonder that communication skills are frequently named as being among the top soft skills required by employees.

Why you should Attend

This highly effective, inspiring and transformational workshop is ideal for any organisation that wants their people to step up into higher profile roles within the company or industry by speaking at events and conferences.

‘Avid’ means keen and enthusiastic and in this interactive session Shola shares her A.V.I.D. framework that encourages speakers to be Authentic, Valuable, Inspiring and Dynamic during professional public speaking situations. Tapping into her 15+ years on international stages, the session is lifted by entertaining stories showing how lessons from the world of performance can be applied to speaking up in the work environment.

The result: Attendees are uplifted, inspired and they see they can be a powerful, engaging speaker in their own way without needing to be a cookie cutter communicator. They learn a simple but highly effective framework that will help them create impactful presentations without the hassle. Individuals walk away with a toolbox of techniques and strategies to be more effective on stage and boost their profile within their organisation or industry.
