Do you have wonderful ideas that you find difficult sharing?

Do you have passion for your startup but find it taxing to speak in public?

You’re not the only one – many startup founders find public speaking a challenge. Yet they know their business success depends on their ability to share their vision and passion with enthusiasm and clarity.

This free workshop will help you create crisp and memorable presentations, and chase away the feelings of anxiety that can dominate even the most ambitious speakers’ minds.

    This event is being run by the Women in Enterprise Network. The network aims to bring business women together, to create a community to connect with, share business ideas and explore best practice.

    Who it’s for

    This event is for anyone interested in setting up their own business, social enterprise or voluntary community-centred organisation.

    You could be a UCL student, alumni or staff member, or someone who lives or works in London. You don't need to be a member of the Women in Enterprise Network to attend.

    What to expect

      In this workshop you'll:

      • discover the three critical mistakes you must avoid when you take the stage
      • explore a three-step method that will take the stress out of speaking and help you enjoy presenting to others
      • practice turning every conversation into an exciting opportunity to connect with your audience and win their support
