Monthly Speaker Training Meeting

The Monthly Speaker Training meeting is an opportunity to practice public speaking and sharpen your skills. Participants will give a short 10-minute talk and then receive feedback.

Every attendee will be expected to give a speech—no spectators, please. Speeches can cover any topic and will be limited to 10 minutes. Please come with a speech already prepared. Slides are recommended. Bring your own laptop for your presentation.

All levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.

Before the meeting, we recommend you watch a video about presenting by Appsterdam Mayor, Mike Lee. http://youtu.be/6Jidkf7RggU

We’re limited to 5 people maximum per meeting, so please RSVP if you would like to come (and please come if you RSVP). The training will be held every last Monday of the month, so you can sign up for a future meeting if this one is full.

Most importantly, the goal is to help you improve. Therefore you will be receiving some constructive feedback on your presentation, so please come with an open and receptive mind.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Hi All. Looking forward to seeing you! If you RSVP'd yes, please do show up. This is a small, specialized session and we have reserved a spot just for you, to work with you. Don't worry if your talk isn't perfect yet, or if you're nervous, scared, etc. That's what we're here for, to practice and learn in an encouraging setting.

    If you can't come, please un-RSVP ASAP so those on the waiting list can be moved up.

    The video link in the description is a great overview by Mike Lee on speaking--highly recommended to watch before the session on Monday.

    See you then!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
