>Webinar – Worse than Death? Public Speaking for Library Staff

>Date: Thursday, August 25, 2011

Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Place: Online

Cost: Free

Public speaking is often listed as one of the top fears people experience. Some even rate it more frightening than death! As library staff, we may be called upon to speak in a variety of contexts, such as promoting library services in the community or providing a training workshop.

Material for this webinar was drawn from interviews conducted with library leaders, membership in organizations such as Toastmasters, and experience in a variety of public speaking contexts, from teaching communication skills workshops to presenting speaker introductions. Recent research provided in this webinar will offer new techniques and insights that can help most people improve their public speaking abilities.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will be able to identify:

•A barrier to effective public speaking and at least one strategy for overcoming that barrier.

•At least five practical tips for speaking effectively in front of any audience.

This webinar will be of interest to anyone from the library community looking for ways to improve their public speaking skills.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required. Simply visit beginning at 2:30 PM on August 25th to join in.
