Join us for this Online Learning session which will be a small, interactive workshop on presentation skills with consultant and trainer Lisa Jeskins.

Date: August 21st, 11am-12.30pm

Location: Online via Zoom

Price: Free

About the session: This will be an interactive session with space for only 10 participants meaning there will be ample opportunity for discussion and sharing experiences amongst the small group.

We will discuss what we are trying to do when we present, the three essential components of context, audiences, and content, and finally, preparation and practice, practice, practice. We will:

  • Consider what creates an effective presentation and what makes content interesting
  • Examine why understanding your audience leads to a better presentation
  • Discuss why preparation and practice is important
  • Think about how nerves might affect your performance and share tips for building confidence
  • Consider what we need to prepare to present online

The session will be led by Lisa Jeskins. Lisa has 15 years of experience working in libraries and is now self-employed as a freelance trainer, coach, and consultant. She is passionate about professional development and helping people to reach their potential. She loves designing and delivering interactive, memorable learning experiences and strives to ensure that she creates an encouraging and supportive learning space. A CILIP Mentor and Fellow, she also an ILM7 in Executive Coaching and Mentoring and is an accredited Belbin facilitator.

Please note, there is space for only 10 participants in this workshop and due to limited capacity, the session is open to CILIP members based in Scotland only. If you would like to attend, please book your place ASAP to avoid disappointment.
