About the course

Women Talk Design—a group focused on bringing a more diverse group of speakers on stage—found that women are more likely to say “no” when invited to speak and less likely to speak up at conference events. The people we see on stage are the people whose ideas we hear, and the ones we view as leaders. We need more women holding the microphone and sharing their ideas at work. We need more women leaders. This two-day workshop is open to everyone but tailored specifically toward helping women become more confident speaking in public. All great presentations should be designed.

This workshop will introduce you to an organizing framework, which involves identifying the context of your talk and letting that design the content, details, and presentation style you use. Come in with a presentation idea you want to work on, or use one of our prompts, as we gain hands-on practice in public speaking. On day one, we will focus on designing the content for a three- to five-minute talk. On day two, we will introduce tips to help women feel more confident in front of a room and stay calm while presenting. You will present your talk and receive feedback from instructors and peers in a safe, supportive environment. By the end of the workshop, you will come away more confident in your ability to deliver an impactful speech to any audience.
