On 29th January 2019, we implemented our first ever Prepared Speech Session, where we collaborated with the Technology and Innovation Club to provide technical topics for our members to present a 5-minute prepared speech. The topics covered included Artificial Intelligence, 5G, Machine learning, Internet of Things to name a few.
This session was a chance for us to evaluate our members on key aspects covered in our previous sessions, including; content, delivery and the psychological factor.
An important factor our presenters had to keep in mind was the fact our attendees were made of up of both technically savvy and non-technical people. This was a great opportunity for our members to find the middle ground of effectively communicating a technical topic and not alienating or boring their audience.
The long format initiative was a resounding success and IE Public Speaking Club look forward to implementing these sessions again in the near future. We look forward to collaborating with different clubs and tackling new topics in our bid to better our members as effective communicators.
Join us next week for our 11th Workshop on Mastering Your Personal Speech, where we will cover important topics such as; tone, speed, the pause, modulation and diction.
See you next week.
