About the workshop

The workshop is led by Relja Dereta, one of our most experienced professionals in the field of public speaking and coaching, with great experience in working with individuals, teams and entire organizations. Through theory and a lot of practice, we will explore crucial aspects of public presentation, regardless if we perform live or online: 

What are the steps in the preparation of the presentation – from where we begin, how much time we devote to each segment, how smart to schedule time for preparation to avoid working on it a night before…?

Strategic development of the presentation concept – how do we analyze the audience, context and the wider picture in which the presentation is happening, how to define the goals and create a space for potential interaction and improvisation

Developing the effective scenario – how to structure our speech to flow and keep the attention, how to use stories, examples and other techniques to communicate the essence

Presentational skills – how to authentically express and make contact with the audience, how to stand, sit, move, gesticulate and overcome the fear of public speaking.
