How to communicate your thoughts with clarity and confidence

How many times we face situations where what we say is not received the way we had intended to? That is not only frustrating but can also lead to different levels of missunderstandings and problems depending on the context.

And, considering the global world we live in, when we are in a multicultural environment, we need to be extra attentive before expressing our ideas, to make sure our audience can follow our thoughts and feel comfortable to engage and interact with us, the presenters.

Every time we are speaking to someone or a group of people, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as experts by sharing our knowledge, but also, and very importantly, to create a positive impact in people’s lives with our message.

Done well, every talk and presentation can become agents of transformation by movingpeople into action.

In this talk, Tulia will share with you some fundamentals you have to be aware of in order to make sure your message is well-understood and welcome.

This is what we will discuss:• What is the biggest mistake most people make when presenting, which is one of the reasons for their message not getting across effectively• Why the audience (not you) is the hero in your story and why sharing stories is important• The three secrets to craft a message which will land well and stick in people’s mind

Key Take Aways

After this talk the participants will:

  • Understand why “one size fits all” doesn’t work when giving a presentation or talk
  • Become story-collectors
  • Be able to define what to add, and what to avoid, when preparing a presentation
