Public speaking

Here at Use.Space we’re extremely pleased to continue our partnership with Elevate GM to deliver the second of three highly valuable presentations for you as part of our Use.Smart platform.

Specialists in raising the visibility of high-performing individuals and organisations, Elevate GM are presenting on the following three important topics, each one designed to help you grow your network, raise your profile, and open up new opportunities.

  • Building Your Network
  • Public Speaking
  • Personal Branding

Whether in person or on screen, engaging your audience is key to your success, and in the second in our series we learn ‘How to Make Yourself Heard’. We hear how to plan and deliver an effective presentation, and how to adapt your style for a virtual audience.

  • Overcome your fear of public speaking
  • Create memorable, effective pitches and presentations
  • Adapt your style for online interviews and meetings

Once again our presenter is Ilona Alcock, and Ilona would describe herself as ‘the shy girl at the back of the school play’. She was someone who would never willingly speak in front of a group of people, someone who literally shook with fear on even the smallest stage.

But Ilona is also someone who decided to change that.

Since making that decision she has developed her public speaking to a point where she competes internationally, hosts awards ceremonies for hundreds of people, and lives by the mantra ‘never say no to stage time’.

In this presentation, Ilona offers helpful tips on creating an impact and shares her expertise on how to plan a great speech. By following a simple process of answering five questions, you will be able to prepare effective pitches, keynote speeches and business updates.

Watch out for the next presentation from Elevate GM coming soon to our blog.
