Storytelling: WikiStage Speaker Workshop (MakeSense)
Not only does WikiStage host WikiTalk events, it also has coaching sessions every Thursday evening for folks wanting to learn how to put together and give an effective speech.
The most recent speaker workshop took place at MakeSense on April 9. This was the first coaching session to be held at MakeSense, and it was quite a success. In fact, there were enough people registered that the event had to be held in a bigger room!
Five coaches gave their own interpretation of storytelling and offered tips and tricks on how to use a short story when communicating a message. The coaches were Béatrice Doradoux, Claudia Martins José, Stéphane Loiret, Antonio Meza and Vincent Avanzi.
After each one spoke, there was a call for an audience member to volunteer and give his/her own talk. Coaches and others in the audience would offer feedback and advice on how the volunteer-speaker can improve.
If you are interested in coming out to the next WikiStage coaching session and learn how to improve your own public speaking skills, then feel free to join us this Thursday April 16 at ESCP Europe! We look forward to seeing you there!
