FFWD x Live Nation: An Introduction to Public Speaking
51 Wangaratta St, Richmond VIC 3121, Australia
Public speaking can be daunting, but it doesn't need to be. Experienced public speaker Chris Carey gives an overview of the key do's and don'ts, in a relaxed environment.
Whether you are a seasoned pro who wants a different perspective or new speaker or just taking your first steps, you are very welcome. The session is aimed at music professionals and artists. We won’t cover stage craft/reading the room in any creative way! But if you want to sharpen your public speaking then please do join us!
Presented by FastForward and Live Nation, in partnership with VMDO and hosted at UNIFIED (51 Wangaratta St, Richmond. Melbourne, VIC 3121), the hour long session promises to be a lighthearted introduction and refresher to a scary subject.
