Virtual Masterclass: Speaking With Confidence Highlights
For our latest Virtual Masterclass: Speaking With Confidence, our MD Nick Gold hosted a fireside Q&A with 4 expert speakers from a variety of backgrounds to demonstrate why it's vital businesses develop their teams communication skills.
Glossophobia, (the fear of public speaking), is incredibly common and can inhibit our chances of career progression by up to 15%. However this isn’t just restricted to public speaking, but it extends to the confidence employees have across all levels to raise their hands, put forward their ideas and articulate their views.
The virtual environment that we've embraced over the past year now means everyone now has a voice regardless of their standing within the business. Developing the skills and confidence for your team to speak up, present, share and grow as individuals is crucial as we begin the business recovery.
Nick was joined by; Nigel Risner, keynote speaker and author of 'It’s a Zoo Around Here’, Daisy McAndrew, the former Economics Editor and Chief Political Correspondent for ITV News, Colin Maclachlan - ex-SAS operative and star of Channel Four's reality TV drama SAS: Who Dares Wins and Maggie Alphonsi, captain of England Rugby Women's World Champions 2014 team and ITV Rugby pundit.
