Title Coming out of the Shell: Becoming a Powerful Public Speaker.

Attendance cap  30

Anyone, even the shyest among us, can give a presentation that everyone will listen to... it just takes learning savvy presentation and public speaking skills. Three experienced librarians with years of instruction and public speaking experience will impart their wisdom at this pre-conference session, sharing their favorite tools, tricks, and tips. Attendees will learn how to put together an engaging, informative, and appropriate presentation that will command attention, as well as how to overcome nervousness and stage fright. Attendees will be able to actively participate and practice some of what they learn. Everyone has a voice, and that voice deserves to be heard with the attention it deserves. Whether you are an experienced or new librarian, join us on June 27th to gain new insight into coming out of your shell and becoming a powerful public speaker.
