PS 101-6 > The Finale

Toronto Public Library - North York Central Library

CA$15.00

Welcome to PS 101-6! The Finale for the PS (Public Speaking) 101 program This evening is when you get to put everything you've learned in PS 101 to the test. We will start out with a few anxiety reduction techniques, then jump right into the 5 minute presentations. Other attendees and the Instructor will ask you content-related questions about your presentation, then give some feedback on the actual presentation. Everyone will have their turn, then have a chance to revise it and do it a second time. Success is all about preparation, practice, revising and more practice. I guarantee that you will leave the PS 101 program feeling more confident and self-efficacious and that you will have increased your conversational and public speaking skills immensely.

GTApreneurs *A New Way to Network - Business Networking Event

Welcome to GTApreneurs’ A NEW WAY TO NETWORK Event April 2019! GTApreneurs puts a fresh spin on traditional business networking. How many “business networking events have you been to in the past? How well did they work for you? How about a new, a more effective way to network? At GTApreneurs’ A New Way to Network events you don’t have to show up and wonder where to start. You don’t have to try to talk to everyone, in the hopes you will find the ones who might be potential clients or referral partners. You don’t have to ask all attendees if they want one of your brochures; then have people who have no intention of being your client take one just to be nice, throwing away your money in the process. There will be a table set up for you to put your brochures, business cards and product samples on if you wish. Then, people can take only what they want and they don’t feel pressured to take something they are going to throw out after they leave the event. Also, every attendee will have the option of doing a 30-60 second Elevator Pitch about their business in front of the group. This way you won’t miss out on telling any one person about yourself and your business. (A timer will be used to keep the event on schedule). Plus, you will get to know what everyone else does from the get-go, so you can streamline your networking process during the Mix & Mingle part of the event afterward. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Itinerary: 6:30-7:00pm: Registration, Cocktails (your own purchase) 7:00-7:45pm: MC Introduction and Elevator Speeches 7:45-8:00pm: Speaker – Tammy Defoe: Public Speaking for business success 8:00-9:00pm: Mix & Mingle, pool (optional) Event Fee: $10 in advance (Register at www.GTApreneurs.com or $15 cash upon arrival to the event. *One beverage or appetizer minimum purchase to support the venue For more information, email the Founder of GTApreneurs at [masked] or call (416)[masked] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ABOUT THE HOST Tammy Defoe, the Founder of GTApreneurs is an experienced Event Organizer and Host and is also a Public Speaking Instructor.
