“Structure” and “Analysis of the Greats”

Written on March 11, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

Another two amazing weeks have passed, and IE Public Speaking Club has continued to show creative and innovative ways of teaching its members regarding the art of public speaking.

Raffaele Piemonte, IE Public Speaking Club’s alumni consultant led a riveting workshop on ‘Structure’ on Tuesday, 26 February. Structure to public speaking is what a foundation is to a house, it’s the bedrock from which your creativity and success are built upon. This is true for many reasons, but none more than the fact it is the point of preparation that you have such an instrumental role in shaping your success. The structure of your speech is much like any story you have told, there is an introduction, the body and a conclusion. Knowing how to put these key points together is the art of preparation.

An introduction is your moment to catch the attention of your audience. Three tried and tested methods include using; a quote, a question, or a punchy story. A strong introduction sets the tempo for the presentation and should be thought out very well. When considering the structure of the whole presentation, one should try to focus on keywords that flow throughout the presentation. They function as a great measuring stick for whether you are getting your full story across, but also as milestones from which you are able to maintain your train of thought. This methodology can be taken further by building a story through which your presentation can flow. The idea is to try to evoke images and emotions through your speech.

When closing your speech, one should always be mindful of the introduction, relating back to the introduction completes the audience’s journey thus allowing them a better understanding of the entire delivery. If your presentation has been very factual, be sure to take the opportunity to recap your key takeaways as it can be difficult for the audience to retain all the information you’ve delivered.

Lastly, this past Tuesday, IE Public Speaking Club took the agenda to the next level, hosting its first ever movie night, dubbed, “Analysis of the Greats”. We had the opportunity to – and with popcorn – watch some of the best public speakers on screen and then analyse what it was we found so intriguing in their delivery. This was an amazing opportunity to discuss how we each felt about these speakers with constructive conversation between our members and coordinators.

We look forward to another great instalment of the video format very soon.

See you there.


The Future Is Not What It Used To Be

Written on March 8, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

This week, the IE Cybersecurity Club had the pleasure of hosting Prosegur Cyber Intelligence Expert, Jose Maria Blanco Navarro to speak about the future of technology and the future cybersecurity risks we should consider as a society. Jose Maria also spoke of the implications technology is having on the distinction between virtual and reality. Another aspect of technology which is often disregarded, is the monitoring of our emotions, feelings and the monitoring of our beliefs. This monitoring leads algorithms to deduce which kind of answers one is looking for, instead of providing us with unbiased search results. Jose Maria concludes that technology not only is affecting our habits and our level of continuous connectivity but the ability for society to distinguish the truth from the false and the ability to make unbiased decisions.

Last Tuesday the AI Club promoted the first AIcebreaker of the year. The audience had a chance to meet the coordinators and take part in a debate about applications of AI in different industries in a casual atmosphere.

This year, we invited Konstantina Valogianni, Information Systems professor at IE Business School. She holds a PhD in Information Systems, specialized in machine learning. Her research focuses on utilizing machine learning and analytical modeling to enable sustainable societies, e.g., facilitating a proper electric vehicle integration in smart grids coupled with renewable generation. Konstantina gave us an overview of several branches of Machine Learning, discussed its limitations, and showcased successful applications of ML such as the development of Natural Language Processing and facial recognition systems with Deep Learning.

At the end, attendees played a crossword game about the world of AI. We would like to thank Konstantina for joining us. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did! We’ll keep promoting interesting events in the next months, so stay tuned.
