Women Talk Design: Public Speaking for Designers
Sold Out
June 11, 9:00am – 12:30pm

Whether speaking at a conference or in a team meeting, public speaking is a critical skill for designers. Join Women Talk Design and AIGA SF in a workshop that will cover the essentials of public speaking. Where should you start? How do you create a talk that’s compelling? What should you do if you freeze while you’re presenting? Leave this workshop with a process you can use next time you need to design a talk, and tips for speaking confidently.
