Crowdpleaser: A Public Speaking Masterclass with Richard Dean
Friday 8 March, 10am-11.30am
Al Amwaj, InterContinental, DFC
Transform your talks with 100 of the greatest public speaking tips of all time, from Socrates to Steve Jobs.
You will leave this session knowing how to write one – and only one – razor-sharp message; build a simple, clear structure; grab attention in the first 20 seconds; give a rousing call to action; entertain and persuade with statistics, stories and soundbites; design slides like beautiful billboards; and deliver your talk with energy and flair.
You’ll see real examples of the tips being used by great speakers, including Steve Jobs, Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi, Sheryl Sandberg and Elon Musk. Then, Richard will walk you through a series of practical workshop exercises, so you can apply the tips to your pitches, presentations, panel discussions and press interviews. The content is based on Richard Dean’s book CROWDPLEASER: The 100 Greatest Public Speaking Tips of All Time, from Socrates to Steve Jobs.Language: English
