IE Public Speaking Workshop on Stress Management

Written on December 7, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional

On Tuesday, 4 December Glaxton Robinson hosted our sixth workshop at the IE Public Speaking Club on a very relevant topic, stress management. Did you know that glossophobia – the fear of public speaking – is one of the most common phobia’s? It is said that over three-quarters of the population suffer from it.

Stress itself comes in a multitude of stages and affects us all differently. From sweaty hands, an increased heart rate, a trembling voice or even an upset stomach we all process our stress differently. But what physically causes those effects are the same, the soup of hormones and chemicals flow through our body. As psychologist and professor, Richard Lazarus stated, stress is “a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.”

In our workshop Glaxton covered the key aspects of stress, defining and better understanding what and how stress works. He covered several focal points which focused on the pre-game, the in-game and the post-game of giving a presentation. What was clear from his presentation was that stress itself is a natural and normal reaction to challenging tasks, and as Hans Selye, ‘the father of stress’ so famously quoted, “It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it”. Having considered that, it is important to note that we cannot eradicate stress, but we can learn to manage it, and how we react to it.

Better identifying our key stressors and how to manage them is a journey and an experiment we must all go through to better ourselves on stage and in life.

Join us next week for our educational workshop on how to effectively use PowerPoint and Prezi, to create a presentation that you will be proud of.

“stress is fundamental to life because it motivates action and behaviour”…Hans Selye

Sexual Health Seminar

Written on December 5, 2018 by Campus Life in Professional, Social

In recognition of World AIDS Day, the IE Out & Allies Club organized a sexual health seminar to promote awareness of HIV and AIDS. It was our honor to host Dr. Daniel Cortez of Fundación Triángulo to talk to the IE community for the second straight year.

Dr. Cortez discussed HIV prevention methods, research on medications including PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), and the current related political situation in Spain. PrEP is now accessible to many LGBT+ communities around the world and it is covered by the public health systems of certain EU countries. It is however not yet officially available in Spain.

This year the seminar was streamed online for those who could not participate in person. The seminar was a great opportunity for students to update their knowledge on this topic and we are very grateful to Dr. Cortez for coming to speak with us.
