UX Australia is a 4 day community conference that covers any and all things user experience and design. Right in the heart of Sydney, the conference features 2 days of workshops helping to boost practical skills to help you get started, learn new techniques, and explore ideas in detail. It also has 2 days of conference presentations that provide practical skills to take away, inspire you for your next project, stretch your knowledge in a new direction or show how someone in a different field has tackled a problem just like yours.
This year, Adam Polansky is running a half day workshop on Tuesday, August 8th from 1:30 – 5:00pm. Feel free to check out the description below:
Public speaking isn’t just for big rooms with a podium and microphone.
Sometimes it’s just you and 5,10 maybe 20 people. They might be your clients or stakeholders or your project team. Any time you address a group, you need to get your message across and know you’ll be understood. Prep and practice are always important but when you’re speaking close-up there are different things to think about and opportunities you don’t have in a conference hall.
In this half-day workshop, Adam Polansky will cover:
- Preparation with long or short notice
- Delivery and room dynamics
- What to consider when you speak to executives
- Keeping the conversation alive after the meeting
- We’ll even talk about giving a pitch.
This session will set you up to own the room the next time you have to present.
