Speak! What to Say (and Not to Say) and
How to Say It

Presenter: Beth Wolfer
(recorded September 25, 2019)

Each of us has opportunities to speak in front of people in our line of work (and in our personal lives). Whether we are sitting with a supporter one-on-one in her living room, or presenting to a Board of Trustees, the words we choose, the confidence we exude and the unspoken communication of our bodies can mean increasing a donor’s belief in our cause or making them wonder why you are wasting their time. Twenty-one-year professional and TEDx speaker coach Beth Wolfer will offer an engaging, useful session to help attendees overcome fear, develop their message and deliver it with confidence.

Come prepared to share an experience and engage with peers around the topic of presentations. Bring a brief story to share about a time you either scored big while speaking or dropped the ball and managed to recover.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Focus on one major idea
  • How they want their audience, or donor, to feel and how to accomplish that
  • What the desired next step would be following the talk
