There is no such thing as a naturally good public speaker. The people who make it look easy are just the ones that have learnt what it takes.

In this very practical workshop, DPP CEO Mark Harrison (who has coached many people in public speaking) will share key techniques that will help you conquer your nerves, and be at your best when speaking in front of others – whether it is a team meeting, or a huge conference.

And to bring those techniques to life, a Rise mentee who will have worked with Mark for the first time that day, will make a short presentation – and share what she has learnt.

This session will run from 15:00-17:00, followed by a networking drinks reception from 17:00-18:00
