Have you ever had to give a speech to an audience and felt that nervous anxious feeling in the pit of your stomach? Join SSD as we present "Speaking in Public? I'd Rather go Skydiving", delivered by Irmgarde Brown, Branch Manager of Havre de Grace, Harford County Public Library and ALA's first ever Battle Decks champion. In addition to her work at the library, she is a motivational speaker, blogger, twitterer, and fiction writer.
This workshop will teach tips and tools to easily facilitate giving a speech as well as teach techniques of effective presentation writing. It promises to be a lively, fun, hands-on workshop that will tackle the introvert in you. Participants will have at least 2 opportunities to practice a 2 minute speech based on topics given by the presenter.
Light refreshments will be served.
Onsite check in begins at 1:00pm.
