Masterclass | Public Speaking and Presenting for Patient Group Leaders (Repeat)

12th January at 11:00 am - 26th January at 1:00 pm

We’re delighted to announce that we are repeating our Public Speaking and Presenting Masterclass!

Presenting at events and conferences, pitching to potential sponsors/partners and speaking to the press are all great ways to raise awareness for your rare disease and help your organisation reach its goals. Therefore, patient group representatives who are confident in their public speaking ability can seize more of these opportunities and better aid their community.

However, we understand that for some individuals, especially those who are new to it, public speaking may not come naturally. The aim of this masterclass is to equip patient group representatives who want to improve their public speaking with the skills to speak and present with confidence in any situation.

How will it work…

  • The masterclass will include three separate sessions spread over a three week period
  • Sessions one and three will be led by expert trainer Fiona Kearns from Kearns Consultancy and will focus on public speaking
  • Session two will be led by the Findacure team and will be specifically focused on presentation skills.
  • In the third and final session, attendees will have the opportunity to present a short talk they have worked on and receive expert feedback.
  • Attendees will be expected to attend each week as the sessions will build upon the skills learnt in the previous week
